"Angel basin", because the angel is reflected in the water.
A nice restaurant is located here by the small pond with an indoor area, which is also visited by many tourists.
Swans breed here right next to your coffee and cake :))
Look at the Buddha 🔝

The Luisenstadt Canal is a historic inner-city canal in Berlin's Luisenstadt, which connected the Spree to the Landwehr Canal. It was opened in 1852 and ran through the later districts of Kreuzberg and Mitte. In 1926 the canal was filled up to the Engelbecken and redesigned into a garden. With the construction of the Berlin Wall in 1961, the border between East and West Berlin ran along the northern part of the canal until 1990. The gardens, which had been destroyed since the Second World War, have been partially reconstructed since 1991.

Built as a Luisenstädtischer channel from 1848 to the connection of Landwehrkanal and Spree to 2.3 km in length. In part, the adjacent houses were supplied directly from the ship with building material. Filled in 1926 and designed as a green corridor. Exciting history under Wikipedia.

The "Engelbecken", which is located in the striking yellow corner building with the inviting terraces of Witzlebenstrasse / Steifensandstrasse. can be found, has shaped the area around Lietzensee visually and culinary for over 20 years.
But it wasn't always located there in Charlottenburg.
Founded in 1995 in Berlin Kreuzberg, at the corner of Reichenberger Strasse on Erkelenzdamm, it owes its name to the nearby water basin in the historic Luisenstadt Canal, named after the Archangel Michael, which connected the Landwehr Canal with the Spree.(Source: engelbecken.de)

A wonderful place to relax, either on beautiful benches in the rose garden or in the cafe at the Engelbecken - with a wonderful view of the water surface and St. Michael's Church. The level is approx. 2 m below street level, we are in the former, silted up Luisestädtischer Canal.
However, there are only limited spaces in the Cafe am Engelbecken, which experience shows that they are in great demand. So make a reservation.
