Description

Peter Lenk's "Baden Revolution"

In Schopfheim stands the monument "Badische Revolution" by Peter Lenk. The sculptor dedicated his large sculpture of the same name to the Baden Revolution of 1848. The citizens of Schopfheim were themselves involved in the revolutionary events for a few days this year, as is recalled by the central square in front of the town hall, which Lenk chose for his work. It was unveiled on 03 October 2004.

Historical Information

The historical figures

It is interesting that the depicted figures are historically guaranteed. The sculpture shows Gustav Struve, Friedrich Hecker and Emma Herwegh, who were involved in the events of the revolution. In addition, a small biting dog appears, a so-called "Schopfheimer Mischling". A revolutionary of the present day also appears - Fritz Teufel, founder of Kommune I. The former prime minister of Baden-Württemberg fights against the revolutionaries in a pick cap and uniform.

How to get there

Coming from Freiburg im Breisgau you follow the motorway A5 to the motorway junction 68-Dreieck Weil am Rhein. Continue on the A98 until exit 5-Lörrach-Mitte. Afterwards you reach Schopfheim via the B317.
