“Sinkende Mauer”

Sinkende Mauer Invalidenpark

The Invalidenpark, partly new and partly restored from 1996 to 1998, is home to Christophe Girot’s fountain installation “Sinkende Mauer” (Sinking Wall): a slanted wall you can walk on rises up out of a pool of water, and water runs down it in the summer months. This monument is intended to recall both the church Gnadenkirche that was torn down in 1967 and the “disappearance” of the Berlin Wall.
