  • This Obelisk stands in tribute to the more than thirty thousand Bavarian soldiers who gave their lives as part of Napoleon's 1812 campaign against Russia, and never made it back in the long retreat. Unusually for an Obelisk, it's cast from bronze from the captured guns of the wars against the Turks. You'll see it if visiting the NationalSocialism Documentation Museum of from Konigsplatz.
