Description

Bronze statue. On the pedestal are two reliefs illustrating a song and a play by Schiller.
Because of construction works the statue was not good to photograph.

Lied von der Glocke

der mutterliebe, zarte sorgen
bewachen seinen goldnen morgen.

Sankt Pölten - Friedrich von Schiller
Wilhelm Tell

ans vaterland ans teure schliess dich an,
