1. Imperia

Show sight on mapBook Ticket*

Imperia is a statue at the entrance of the harbour of Konstanz, Germany, commemorating the Council of Constance that took place there between 1414 and 1418. The concrete statue is 9 metres (30 ft) high, weighs 18 tonnes, and stands on a pedestal that rotates around its axis once every four minutes. It was created by Peter Lenk and clandestinely erected in 1993. The erection of the statue caused controversy, but it was on the private property of a rail company that did not object to its presence. Eventually, it became a widely-known landmark of Konstanz.

The Holy Trinity Church is a church building in Konstanz on Lake Constance. Since it was built in the late 13th century for the local monastery of the Augustinian hermits, it is also called the Augustinian Church. Until the dissolution of the monastery in 1802, it functioned as a monastery church and, from the 17th century, additionally as a garrison church, then as a hospital church, an Old Catholic church (1873–1904), a Roman Catholic parish church and today an ecumenical "city church". Due to its harmonious combination of simple Gothic mendicant architecture, late Gothic frescoes and baroque picture and stucco decoration, it is one of the most important sacred monuments in the city and one of the sights of Constance.

Johann Georg Elser was a German worker who planned and carried out an elaborate assassination attempt on Adolf Hitler and other high-ranking Nazi leaders on 8 November 1939 at the Bürgerbräukeller in Munich. Elser constructed and placed a bomb near the platform from which Hitler was to deliver a speech. It did not kill Hitler, who left earlier than expected, but it did kill 8 people and injured 62 others. Elser was held as a prisoner for more than five years until he was executed at Dachau concentration camp less than a month before the surrender of Nazi Germany.
