Today we finally went up to the Hermann monument. It is huge, about 50m high!It was built at the end of the 19th century by Ernst von Bandel, who wanted to create a symbol of national unity after the defeat of Napoleon in the Battle of Leipzig in 1813.
On the next hill, called the 'Bielstein', stands a 290m high transmitting mast, which you can also see from my host family's house!
The best thing about going up to 'Hermann the German' was the climbing park, which is located at the parking lot in the trees. Unfortunately it closes around October, but I had the chance to climb the lowest course, which was a lot of fun, too . You can see me on the last photos in two of the elements!
