Germania looking at a plane

    Newer Older

    At the Niederwald-Denkmal, a proud Germania looks towards the Rheingau (not towards France, as often depicted!) and seems to follow the flight path of an airplane high up in the sky.

    Ready to crown herself, this statue is a representation of the patriotic feelings of the 19th century in the newly founded German federation.
