It is rather a simple monument surrounded by beautiful buildings and an interesting market. It is easy to spot and there's a Maypole nearby.

This is a rather plain disappointing obelisk however it sits in a very good market place where there is also the large Marien Chapel.

This is a rather plain obelisk, sitting in the markt platz amid the stalls, near the Marienkappelle and the Falkenhaus and information center. Just a thing to see as you walk around the plaza.

If you have seen any of the Obelisks' in Rome and the ornate plinths and carvings that surround them and are on them, this will be a little disappointing. A good marker to get into the market place, but nothing to write home about.

It was built in 1802, is 15 meters high and marks the center of the market place. There are figured reliefs on the North and South sides and fountains on the East and West sides. There you have it. Plan on spending a minute or...More

This is an obelisk in the middle of the Marktplatz. There are some carvings on it, but nothing outstanding.

The marketplatz had a health fair on the day when we arrived. Very busy, yet still very beautiful. Recommend visiting and enjoying a vibrant downtown.
