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. Therefore, from the beginning of the 19th century giant monuments began to appear in different places in Germany.

The Kyffhauser Monument (81 meters high) was built in 1890-1896 in honor of Emperor Wilhelm I.

Sometimes it is called the Barbarossa monument, since there is also a 6-meter sculpture of the Holy Roman Emperor. He sits on the throne and looks more like the  Neptune.

Wilhelm I and Friedrich Barbarossa are the most famous rulers of Germany (not counting Hitler, of course). They are divided by 700 years of history, but linked by the desire to unite the lands of Germany.

The place was not chosen by chance, the monument is erected on the ruins of the medieval imperial castle Kyffhauser, the remains of which can also be visited.
