Snapshot: Goldener Hirsch (Golden Stag)

The Golden Stag (Goldener Hirsch) against a Berlin winter sky

This statue of a golden stag by the sculptor August Gaul sits atop a column in the centre of the Hirschbrunnen (stag fountain) in Rudolph-Wilde-Park, previously known as Stadtpark Schöneberg, opposite Rathaus Schöneberg (Schöneberg Town Hall).

The fountain was erected in 1912 and the stag is the emblem of the Berlin district of Schöneberg.
