Hamburg's highest monument is that depicting Chancellor Bismarck. At a total height of about 100ft, it is located in the old Elbpark and seems to keep a guarding eye over the Landungsbrücken and the harbour. The stylised statue of Bismarck, leaning on a sword in Medieval battle dress, was created by the sculptor Hugo Lederer and the architect Emil Schaudt in 1903-06. The approximately 45ft figure is made of granite from the Black Forest. Athletic figures are visible on the staircase that forms the base of the statue. They are supposed to symbolise the German tribes. The monument is open all day.
