Column ‘2000 years of christendom’

The nine-metre high bronze column shows the history of Christianity in numerous sculptural elements. They show the life of Jesus Christ, the Reformation, the time of National Socialism and the attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001. A telescope allows visitors to see even the smallest details on the column created by the artist Jürgen Weber (1928–2007). The “Ringerbrunnen” fountain is another of Weber’s works (on the corner of Vor der Burg/Sack).
