Kyffhäuser Monument

Jamila back in Munich; Wellcome celebration at the Oktoberfest
Quedlinburg, Cradle of the German Empire

Emperor Wilhelm I. is commemorated with several colossal monuments in Germany at different spots.

This one here is in the Kyffhäuser mountain range close to Bad Frankenhausen. It was erected after the victory in the war 1871 over France and 1866 also Bavaria and after the founding of the second German empire after the Napoleon age (and the Agreement of Wittelsbacher Ludwig II.). In a period of national enthusiasm when also several unfinished project like the cathedral in Cologne oar the one in Ulm were accomplished.

Barbarossa is also commemorated within the same monument. His vacation home is not far away in Thuringia.

The Hartz mountain range in the north is also visible from here and the Thuringian Forest in the south.

Grandson Wilhelm II. had his colossal appearance at the Rhine river in Koblenz.

The Hohenzoller emperors liked it big.

Sheila also saw the “Niederwalddenkmal” at Rüdesheim at the Rhine River before.

On the way from the parking lot to the Memorial there is also a crummy memorial of Reichskanzler Hindenburg. But as the one we saw is made from wood it can’t be the original.
