Fodor's Review

Friedrich Wilhelm IV modeled this building after a Turkish mosque, complete with a minaret, to serve as the palace waterworks building. About a ten-minute walk from Neuer Markt, the Dampfmaschinenhaus used a steam engine to transport water to a large fountain at the center of Sanssouci Park, about half a mile away. Although that fountain is now served by a modern pump system, this beautiful piece of architecture is still worth a visit for its intricate, Islamic-inspired designs decorating both interior and exterior.
