This is a statue called Unzeitgemäße Zeitgenossen by Bernd Göbel. the details of the statue is covered with real gold. This is located close to Augustus Platz and right in the shopping district.

This is a pleasant & vibrant pedestrian area with all the usual suspects as regards the stores you'd expect to find anywhere, but also some local specialty shops. Has an easy going safe vibe& is the way to the market square

A very beautiful, original and intriguing sculpture showing 5 people in various activities. Almost impossible to miss on the main old town street.

This sculpture is prominent and beguiling, but you do need to understand German to get why it is there (unless you have a guidebook). It is largely about brutalism, injustice and the abuse of human intelligence with regard to others' views. A fine example of...More
