Interesting to learn how this impressive statue ended up in a small town. The history was amazing to know Hermann was famous for the past 2000 years since winning the battle against the Romans.

Great panorama view from top of statue to whole New Ulm area. Great to be there to take some nice pictures from the top

This monument is huge and impressive. It sits on the top of a hill with an amazing view. We were disappointed because it does not open until Memorial Day so we missed going up in it by a week. We will definitely stop back.

Fun to climb to top. Cooler than expected. Nice playground and picnic area. Great view of New Ulm. Museum underneath it. Smashed penny souvenir machine.
