Two statues on both sides of the entrance path to the Church of St. Francis:
- St. Mary Immaculate Conception with her hands on her chest, and standing on a globe with crescent moon and serpent
- (Nepomuk c. 1345 - Praha 1393), confessor of the queen of Bohemia, refused to divulge the secrets of the confessional. At the behest of King Wenceslaus of Bohemia he was thrown from the Charles Bridge in Prague and drowned. John of Nepomuk is patron saint of bridges (Wikipedia)
The statues are restored in 2000 by Thomas Lehmkuhl.
- Johann Adolf Sasse, German sculptor in Coesfeld, flourishing between 1690 and 1755.
