The 103m-high Europa-Center was Berlin’s first 'skyscraper' at its 1965 opening, with the giant Mercedes star spinning on its rooftop a symbol of capitalist West Germany's miraculous economic recovery. Today, the aging shopping centre exudes charming retro flair and is enlivened by such quirky sights as the Lotus Fountain and the psychedelic Flow of Time Clock by Bernard Gitton.
