The German fountain is... a German foutain - and to be fair it's not really a nice one, although at least it's monumental.

It was built in 1898 and it came to Istanbul 3 years later. The occasion was a visit paid by the Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany to Istanbul. He donated the fountain to the Ottoman Sultan Abdulhamit, which place it in the Hippodrome, in front of the Blue Mosque.

Address: sultan ahmed aread
Directions: opposite the blue mosque
