Equestrian Statues

Rider Statues (Braunschweig Stadtmarketing GmbH / Medienzentrum )

The two equestrian statues made of copper show the Dukes Carl Wilhelm Ferdinand von Braunschweig (1735–1806) and his son Friedrich Wilhelm (1771–1815). Both dukes fell as military leaders in the Napoleonic Wars. These statues from 1874 returned to this, their original location, on the reopening of the residence palace.
