  • The Memorial itself is already a pretty block in the landscape. A building in the style of the Wilhelminian period. It represents the first emperor of the German Empire as a statue. Below is the medieval Emperor Barbarossa. The monument is to reach approximately 600 to 800 m from the parking lot only on foot.

  • After we have made a tour through bad Frankenhausen, we are ramped monument to the Kyffhäuser. There, we had a very interesting tour mystical, but also steeped in history. After a legend Yes Emperor Barbarrossa in the monument is sleeping. Connection are we increased the 247 steps and had a super nice view up and could see even the brocken in the Harz, which is Yes only 50 km away. What has to be mentioned in the plant, there is a fountain, the 176m is deep.

  • Only the high entrance fee has deterred but me, but ultimately it was justified. There was much more to see and discover than expected. Lame legs were the result after the resettlement in motorcycle clothing. Tip: at popular the foot motorcycle rendezvous with sausages in rolls for €1!

  • Its was a cold snowy day in March 2013 that I visited Kyffhauser. The monument was covered up for restoration, but still open to the public. The climb to the top was easy going with information display on the floors on the way up. The view from the top was of snow snow and more snow, white as far as you could see. Did I enjoy my visit? Yes. In total I spent over 3 hours in the monument and grounds. Would I go back? Yes, but next time I may wait till the temperature is above freezing.
  • On a beautiful June day in the Millenium year (2000), we stumbled upon it. In the far distance, prominant from all around. We made our way over vale and ridge, about 5 kms to the base of the monument. The last 2 or 3 kms on dirt roads. Suddenly we were climbing the last ridge with the monument in sight. Parking the car, we paid a token amount to enter and then wound our way around its base, to enter and ascend the monument. Clearly signed for visitors, it is impressive all the way. My wife gave up about halfway, I clambered on to the top. I remember the warnings, about keeping your head down in THUNDER storms. DONNER UND BLITZEN. I also remember increasingly large cracks in the stonework, larger as you climbed higher up the steps. Spotlessly clean as you would expect. The view was really a disappointment, just woodland and rolling hills. The monument was dramatic and superb, of its period and type. On the return to the car, there is a small museum. Interesting to see that I had stood and leant over the exact same spot and balconies as Hitler. Didn't expect that. If you can find it, you will always remember it. JRPM. 18.1.2013
  • awesome monument!
  • Directions over the mountains is gorgeous, the prices for the monument itself but quite high. This one is available a magnificent view! The architecture of the monument is impressive. Also, there is the ability to "climb the monument itself" in the inner area, to look even further from the top. Caution: Because the stone stairs are not only steep, but are also close to the end of the ascent with a fear of heights is not recommended. The
