Kaiser Wilhelm II or German Fountain Istanbul

Location

The German Fountain is located on Sultanahmet Square across from the Mausoleum of Sultan Ahmed I.

History

It was constructed to commemorate the second anniversary of the German Emperor Wilhelm II's visit to Istanbul in 1898. The fountain's design was drawn by the architect Spitta and constructed by the architect Schoele with the German architect Carlitzik and Italian architect Joseph Anthony also working on the project.
The fountain was built in Germany and then transported piece by piece to Istanbul, reassembled in its current site and officially opened January 27, 1901, on the birthday of German Emperor Wilhelm II.

The Style of the German Fountain

The fountain’s neo-renaissance style stands on a high floor with of eight stairs, has seven brass faucets and the reservoir is covered by a dome with eight porphyry columns.
The exterior of the dome is bronze green and this and the interior surface are covered in gold mosaics as well as symbols of Sultan Abdulhamid II's and Wilhelm II's calligraphic monograms. The arches between the columns showcase the deep-rooted friendship between Turkey and Germany and it being situated in Sultanahmet Square shows off its artistic value.
