Hermann the German

Here you can read about the monument.



And here is the back side of the monument.  Unfortunately, I never took a picture of the front.  I see I’m not the only one to shirk my duty.  The official web site doesn’t have any really great front pictures of it either.


After paying our admission, we made the approach, stopping to take a picture of one of the Lions.
(Which, if you spend any time with Sara, you will know that “Lions are king.  Uh-huh.  Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.” which is the aptly named “Whiny cheer”.



I bring you the wrought iron update from the Hermann monument.



After ascending the spiral stairs, there is a reprieve with some windows.


One final spiral and a ladder that affords a view of Hermann’s underthings.


Sara climbing up.


It was quite windy.


Shadows and roof flourishes.



The view.

  1. How random, and fascinating, that there’s a monument to an ancient German guy in small town Minnesota. I like it, though. I’m a huge sucker for a spiral staircase, and the view looks nice.

  2. Woah! I love how white-knuckled I am at the top of that ladder. Not sure why it hit me so badly. Regardless, I made it to the top!!!
