It is a detailed and interesting monument about the history of Düsseldorf, starting at Düsseldorfs' independence. To find more information about the monument it can be found at the Rathaus which is across the plaza and right around the corner.

It is on the church way; Not hidden as in the comments. It has a story which makes it meaningful. Very detailed work and you should look carefully
