  • This monument stands in tribute to Max Joseph Pettenkofer, the German chemist and hygienist. He is known for his contribution to practical hygiene and proper sewage disposal. In Germany, he is considered to have contributed to making the study of hygiene a proper field of academic study. This monument depicts Pettenkofer in old age seat on Romanesque chair wearing academic robes. His left hand rests on the back of the chair while holding a scroll, further alluding to his academic works. The statue is sadly, somewhat fade. The monument is located in Maximilian public square and gardens, amongst monuments to other well known Germans.
  • Very beautiful park.
