It was quite a long drive to get to the Kyffhauser Denkmal, and there were so many roads closed, that - despite its size - it wasn't that easy to find. The main thing about it is that it is big and offers views over...More

Went to see the Kyffhäuser Denkmal in the winter prompted by a postcard from the 1930'es. Very impressive monument in a style belonging to another era. Upon arrival we thought that the entrance fee was a bit high but after spending a couple of hours...More

You have to follow a winding street to reach the parking lot (during season subject to charge). From the nearest parking lot you have the choice of a 1 mi. (1.5 km) moderate steep ascent or a 0.5 mi. (800 m) very steep ascent to...More

Let alone the stunning monument and its history, the view from top is just incredible. Even the weather wasn't quite good we could see the beautiful forrest covered in fog. I would have loved seeing a little fledermaus but that was only possible on photos....More

Fantastic views and the stories of Barbarossa are interesting. About 600 steps up and down so you need to be fit!

Monument erected to honour the German emperor (Kaizer) Wilhelm I. It survived both WW II and the Cold War period and for that reason alone it is well worth a visit. However, tourism is thriving here as well. Still, the short detour on your way...More

I can only think of one other place I've been in Germany that was even more monumental in scale; Walhalla on the Danube. The Kyffhauser has the advantage over it though with a 360 degree view of the countryside. Built to honour Kaiser Wilhelm the...More

Like a hobbit! That what I felt when was standing near Frederick Barbarossa's monument. It is spectacular! We came too late or something like that, do not know exactly but the monument was closed. So we had no choice except jump over a fence. It...More
