Herman Heights Monument - New Ulm, MN

Herman Heights Monument - New Ulm, MN

A unique monument in New Ulm, Minnesota, has become the official symbol of all Americans of German heritage, the largest ethnic group to emigrate from Europe to the United States.

New Ulm's Hermann Monument, dedicated in 1897, stands 102-feet tall, second only to the taller copper-sheathed Statue of Liberty. Visitors can climb an open, circular staircase to the base of the statue for a spectacular view of New Ulm and the Minnesota River Valley.
