Arminius Monument

The monument in honor of  Arminius the Cheruskan ("Hermannsdenkmal") is a popular destination for Wunderland visitors.

Mitteldeutschland Harz Hermannsdenkmal

Just like the original in the Teutoburg Forest, the Wunderland version has also been historically misplaced. Scientists have discovered, that the Varus Battle of the Teutoburg Forest really took place in a different county, at the Kalkrieser Mountain in Lower Saxony. For the Wunderland version we stayed true to the county of Lower Saxony and built the monument into the western part of the Harz mountains.

The monument was built by hand high above the open air theater. The tip of the sword touches the sky at 69,6 Wunderland meters. It took roughly 160 working hours to build this version of Germany's highest statue.
