You must see Hermann... The site is easily accessible, and the parking is free. You could get an RV into the parking lot if it is not too busy. We did not travel up into the statue as it was not open when we arrived,...More

Stopped too early to get into the monument to walk up. There are numerous plaques with the history available to read. Impressive, glad we stopped.

Was here at the park for a family function and Hermann was next to us. I did not pay the $2.75 to enter but watched several people walk up the stairs to the top where the view is supposedly gorgeous. This is a public park...More

Unlike mythology figures, Hermann is a real character in an essential Roman/Germanic battle that turned the tides of history about 2000 years ago. The story is the stuff movies are made of. This colossal monument towers in a beautiful park setting, daring you to take...More
