"Neptunbrunnen (Neptune fountain)" Neptune Fountain - Neptunbrunnen Tip by hojasdehierba

 
 

This beatiful fountain is a work by Reinhold Begas and dates back from 1891. Under the surface of a mythologic iconography, the feminine statues of the fountain stand for the four main rivers in Germany: Rhin, Elba, Oder and Weichsel. It is located at the Rotes Rathaus square, very close to Alexanderplatz.
