The Monument Near Kadewe in Berlin

It is over a year now since I visited Germany’s capital city. It was a 3-day trip with the bus from Bayern or Bavaria, Germany. The trip took about 6 hours including stops in between the journey. The first stop of our bus upon arrival Berlin was in KaDeWE which stands for Kaufhaus des Westens or “Department Store of the West” in English. It is said to be the second largest department store in Europe after Harrods in London.

Near KaDeWe, you will find a monument. I took a snaphot of this statue but I cannot find its exact name. Any idea out there? Thanks in advance.

This monument near KaDeWe was taken during our Berlin trip last February 2011.

Addendum: April 7, 2012

This is the “Lebensalter” or “Südbrunnen” (Ages of life – South Fountain). It is located in Wittenbergplatz, 10789 Berlin and was built in 1985 by Waldemar Grzimek, Hartmut Bonk, Fee Franck and Christian Höpfner.

You can find more of the infos in this link http://www.stadtentwicklung.berlin.de/bauen/brunnen/de/tem_sch/11.shtml.

Thanks to my friend Art who always help me find information about statues and monuments in Germany. I truly appreciate it.

    Hello Ruby—This is Art. I am glad to see you have another fountain that you need information on. This is the Lebensalter(Sudbrunnen). I apologize that I do not have the time to translate all the information about it from German into English. I’m right between trips to Africa again. I just got back a month ago and am flying back in two weeks. When I comehome nest, I will have a layover in Germany for ten days starting on July the 4th. I’m renting a car and will be spending two or three days in the Hohenfels area. Maybe I will see you. Here is a link to the info on this. It is in German, but I am sure you can translate enough to have good information on this fountain which is actually known for being four fountains in one. Have fun, I hope to see you in July…..Art
