Monument to Eberhard I

Monument to Eberhard I, Duke of Württemberg

Eberhard I (1445-1496) is considered the first Duke of Württemberg. In numerous publications, he is also referred to as Eberhard im Bart (Eberhard the Bearded). This equestrian statue made of bronze stands in the courtyard of the Altes Schloss (Old Palace) in Stuttgart. Today, the castle serves as the location of the Landesmuseum Württemberg.

Monument to Alexander Girardi

Monument to Alexander Girardi in Girardi park

The monument to Alexander Girardi (1850-1918) lies on a small green space between the traffic streams on Girardiplatz in Vienna. So the actor and operetta singer does not have to complain about a small audience, even if the most car driver passes this park without taking a notice of the white statue.

Bauhaus Museum in Weimar

Construction site of the Bauhaus Museum in Weimar

I love to visit construction sites of museums. They help to understand how the interior structure of the exhibition building is designed. With curiosity and blue protective coatings on my shoes, I enter the shell construction of the Bauhaus Museum in Weimar. Its opening is scheduled for April 2019.

Monument to Franz Wirer

Monument to Franz Wirer in Bad Ischl, Austria

This monument in the spa gardens (Kurpark) of Bad Ischl is reminiscent of Franz Wirer von Rettenbach, who is considered the founder of the first Austrian saline water health spa in this place. Remarkable in the design of the memorial, I find the extraordinary size of the bust.
