Berliners have a nickname for most things, and in 1891 they christened the Neptune Fountain "Neptunbrunnen" in front of the City Palace "Forckenbecken". On the one hand it describes the fountain very fittingly: Neptune stands with a trident "Forke" in his hand in a basin "Becken". On the other hand, the mayor at the time was called Forckenbeck. Berlin might not be Rome, but the fountain dedicated to the god of the sea between Marien Church and Red Town Hall "Rotes Rathaus", and beside the landmark Television Tower "Fernsehturm", has famous predecessors in Rome: the Triton Fountain in the Piazza Barberini and the Fountain of the Four Rivers on Piazza Navona
