Visited couple of times with different people, this place offer the best view to the city. You can choose if you go up by car, by bike or if you prefer a nice walk uphill through the forest.

A prime vantage point to look over the city on the other side of the river. The monument is perched high on the hill offering magnificent views.

Saw it from a distance and was a bit surprised with such a statue on a mountain top. Didn't feel the need to go there and aparently that was a misjudgement.

Was hoping to hike up the footpath in December 2015 from the town but the footpath is closed. Looks a bit permanent. It goes up by a graveyard. Best to check with the tourist office if you are planning a hike from the town below.
