Hermann Monument is located on the top of a 386-meter hill and dedicated to the victory of the Germanic tribes over the Roman army led by Arminius in the year 9 AD. It is located in the Tevtonburg forest and has a height of over 53 meters, being one of the 25 tallest statues in the world.

After Napoleon captured Germany and made political fragmentation, the public was looking for characters and events that could personalize the idea of ​​national unity and greatness of the German nation. In the early 19th century monuments appeared in different locations in Germany. Construction of the Hermann monument began in 1838, before the others, but stopped because of financial problems. It ended in 1875 with financial support from Kaiser Wilhelm.

Ernst von Bandel, author of the monument, believed that the battle occured exactly where the monument stands, but now we know that it took place a hundred kilometers to the north east. It would be desirable, of course, that the author had better data, since the place is not very good for photos. The monument is surrounded by forest from all sides. Even if you go up to the observation deck, you will still see only the forest. Historical value of the monument is great, but mass tourists look out not only for history.
