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.

Big surprise on a walk through Stuttgart. A fodder meadow (Fettwiese) inside a city. I was told the hay from this meadow is used in a nearby zoo named Wilhelma.
