niederwalddenkmal, rüdesheim, above the rhein river:

In Germany we honour our Denkmäler frequently, like with the annual Wave Gotik Treffen in Leipzig, where concerts are held at the Völkerschlachtdenkmal:

i was there two days ago ! :) :) :)
they dug the floor since, to let tourists and berliners see the foundations of the lost berliner schloss...
( they want to make soon a reconstruction of this castle and need founds to; the ruins from the second world war -still possible at the time to keep and rebuild- were destroyed with dynamits in 1950 by the soviets...)

we can see now the caves and groundfloors of the castle, with still machines in...i "visited" it on last saturday afternoon, there are lots of photos and explanations about it around it, showing people the right place -in the original plans- where these ruins are nowadays... very interesting, i spent quite a long time above this "archeologic" field...

The Soviets destroyed alot of monuments. The most prominent one is probably the Kaiser Wilhelm Denkmal in Berlin:

The base is still there:

This is how it looked like before:

excellent - we often forget how meticulously operated excavations can reveal much more architectural heritage than one can imagine.The more i think about it, the more i want to have a Denkmäler tour sometimes. wonder if there are close to each other, so as to not drive too much in between one another.

Benmabillon,don't treat others who don't adopt the same restrictive thoughts and quasi-religious views as just a bunch of irresponsible people who haven't
seen the light if you don't wish to be treated the same way in return.
