Hermannsdenkmal

Located in the Teutoburg Forest in the Westphalia region of Germany the statue of  Hermann (or Arminius as he was known to the Romans) commemorates the  Battle of the Teutoburg Forest in which the Germanic tribes under Arminius recorded a decisive victory against three Roman Legions in 9 AD. Known as “Hermann  German” the film does not do justice to the scale of the statue which stands 87ft tall with a sword over 20ft in length.

It is a truly stunning sight to walk through the forest and then to see it as you turn into the cleared avenue which leads to the monument.
