Nice entrance to the old city: good photo op and place to start your walk around. You can walk up to the top of the stairs for another view.

Commemorates the locally recruited men of The Kings German Legion who were part of Wellington's force at Waterloo. Easily included in a stroll around the quaint streets in this part of the City
