German Fountain

The German Fountain is a fountain situated between Hippodrome and Sultanahmet in Istanbul.

The German Fountain, German Emperor II. gave it as a gift to Abdulhamit after the expedition to the east by Wilhelm in the nineteenth century. The top of the fountain is open and it has a single dome. Each part of the dome of the octagonal domed structure has a medallion on the green ground. The fountain was brought here after it was built in Germany. German and Italian architects worked together. The fact that the Turkish administrators before the World War I bear German admiration makes it interesting and makes it a gift.

There are many important structures around the city such as the Blue Mosque, the Haghia Sophia Museum, the Obelisk and the Serpent Column.
