    Otto Von Bismark

    Otto Von Bismark

    This massive statue was built in honour of Otto Von Bismark, who seems to ahve unified germany in the 19th Century. It was erected in the early 20th Century. He was apparently a very popular ruler, except among Catholics (as I found out from Aga) due to the Kulturkampf program.
    The statue is still in good condition, though as with everything else these days, the lower reaches are adorned with grafitti.

    Just as it was getting dark we took a stroll up to the Bismark monument. It is a HUGE monument - the largest in Hamburg and it is a bit of a climb to get up there, but there are some lovely views to be had so it's worth it!
