A lot of traffice and annoying that you had to pay to see a statue
Sep 2020
Beautiful surrondings and an impressive location on top of a castle and a mountaion. You have to pay to get in to the memorial, which I think was a bit much. The little castle underneath was interesting.

Worth the drive
Sep 2020
This monument is located in a relatively remote mountain area in the southern part of the Harz.

It is about 80 meters high and only the Völckerschlacht Denkmal in Leipzig is higher. We visited on a sunny and clear day, with a great view from the monument. There is a parking lot beneath the monument and we walked to the top, which was nice in the beautiful weather.

Due to Covid-19 measures a limited number of visitors are allowed in the tower, but we did not experience any waits. At the different levels you will find exhibits giving detailed information of the monument and the history behind it.

Refreshments and restrooms are available on site, and the monument is definitely worth a detour.

Difficult to get there - but worth the trip

A ‘colossus’ which epitomises the 2nd and 3rd German Reichs. If you have any disabilities then continue to the ‘second’ Car Park where a ‘free’ mini-bus is waiting to take you up to the monument - and bring you back (if you tell the person in the ticket office). Cafe/toilets are available adjacent to the monument. The views are wide-reaching.

Impressive

This is a typical, massive German monument, the third largest in the country. The size is awesome and it is dedicated to Kaiser Wilhelm1 also known as Barbarossa Monument . Originally lots of similar monuments dedicated to Kaiser Wilhelm 1 were built all over the country, but many were destroyed during the war. It's quite a drive, but I felt it was worth it and we stopped to see the Panorama Museum on the way.

Good views - little else
Sep 2017 • Couples
It was quite a long drive to get to the Kyffhauser Denkmal, and there were so many roads closed, that - despite its size - it wasn't that easy to find. The main thing about it is that it is big and offers views over a large area (provided you have the energy to climb the 200 or so steps - not suitable for handicapped or unfit people). Apart from the monument there were very few facilities to justify the price. However, we were there on a wet Monday, so maybe there's more to do on a sunny Sunday?
Note: Someone with a sense of humour decided that there could be a small reduction in price for handicapped people - despite the fact that the monument is inaccessible to handicapped people!

A monumental surprise
Jan 2017 • Couples
Went to see the Kyffhäuser Denkmal in the winter prompted by a postcard from the 1930'es. Very impressive monument in a style belonging to another era. Upon arrival we thought that the entrance fee was a bit high but after spending a couple of hours (more than planned) seeing the whole site including the Barbarossa Tower and the museum we felt that we had had value for money. Worthwhile to see if you are interested in history.

An Icon of the (Bygone) German Empire - Overpriced
Jan 2017 • Couples
You have to follow a winding street to reach the parking lot (during season subject to charge). From the nearest parking lot you have the choice of a 1 mi. (1.5 km) moderate steep ascent or a 0.5 mi. (800 m) very steep ascent to the ticket booth. The entrance fee for adults amounts to EUR 7.50. After entering the area you have a close-up view of the monument, you can enter the tower and climb it. And spend even more money in a restaurant on the premises. Make up your mind whether this is worth your money.

Amazing

Let alone the stunning monument and its history, the view from top is just incredible.
Even the weather wasn't quite good we could see the beautiful forrest covered in fog. I would have loved seeing a little fledermaus but that was only possible on photos. Not quite sure what to make of the "gruselturm" though, as I don't think there was a story behind it. Might have just been for Halloween... still fun.

Huge monument with lots to see
Sep 2016 • Friends
Our friends from Bad Frankenhausen took us here. We probably would never have gone on our own. Entry is 7.50euros, so not cheap, but there's lots to see. Firstly the large monument has good photo view points form the bottom then form the top. There are many steep steps to the top, but a couple for viewing platforms to read information ( mostly German) to catch your breath. Worth the climb for great views. On a clear day one can see the Brocken mountain in the Harz.
After the monument, look at the deep well, drop a special rock down, and visit the small museum. Walk around the herb garden near the remains of the old castle, then climb up that one for more views.
Finish off walking through the forest and remains of the walls back to the car park.
There were a few stalls selling food there as well and a cafe.

A delight
Jun 2016
It´s a great place to visit, starting with the walk by the mountains (wich you can also do by car) you start to enjoy the surroundings, when you get to the top, the monument it´s a bit more than you expected, and the history is pretty good, and the views are amazing.
