The victory and peace memorial in Edenkoben was built between 1893 and 1899 on the Werderberg near Edenkoben in memory of the victory in the war of 1870/71. Today the monument is mostly called “Peace Monument”.
The Werderberg was chosen because from there you could see the signals of victory over the French that were given in Strasbourg.
The equestrian figure is a naked young man holding an olive branch in his hand as a sign of peace. The memorial was designed by August Drumm, Prince Regent Luitpold of Bavaria commissioned the construction.
