Berlin – Europa Center

I’m not sure that I’ve been in many shopping centres that are seen as historically important, but the Europa Center is one such building. It was constructed between 1963 and 1965 and was one of the largest shopping centres of its type in the country when it opened.

It perhaps feels more 1980s than 1960s, but it still doesn’t really seem that dated.

The ground floor water feature. The Castle Mall in Norwich had one of these. Well, some buckets to catch leaking water anyway.

Looking down from the first floor onto the ground floor.

The shopping centre’s pride and joy, the ‘Clock of Flowing Time’ which shows the time by filling spheres with luminous fluid.
