Description

Gildes statue of St. Michael slaying the dragon with a cross-staff on the spire of the central tower of the castle.

The statue was sculpted by Kiss around 1856 to serve as a memorial for the Prussian soldiers killed during the Baden revolution of 1849. The architect of the Schwerin castle, Friedrich August Stüler had the statue placed on the cupola of the castle.
