Kyffhäuser Monument

Emperor Frederick I is a myth and, as a symbol of a united empire, inspired poets and writers to write the story of the eternally sleeping ruler - in the hidden castle in the Kyffhäuser Mountains. Emperor Redbeard and the legends surrounding him continue to fascinate people to this day. Barbarossa is enthroned in sandstone on the Kyffhäuser Monument, which has towered over the legendary Kyffhäuser Mountains for more than 120 years. Once you have climbed the 250 steps of the second largest monument in Germany, you will be rewarded with a fantastic view over the region all the way to the Brocken. In the Middle Ages, the imposing Kyffhausen Castle stood here - with the deepest castle well in the world. Visitors can now take a virtual tour of the well in the multimedia exhibition and discover many a treasure that has ended up in the well shaft over the centuries. Riding high on his horse, Kaiser Wilhelm I proudly leads the way at the monument - since the unification of the German Empire in 1871, the people have praised him as "Whitebeard on Redbeard's Throne". The legendary emperors are still united today at the monument on Kyffhäuser Hill, which can be seen from afar - and so Kyffhäuser is not only an exciting destination for hikers and history buffs. Under the eyes of the red and white bearded emperors, lovers can also get married in a unique setting!
