We found this statue without looking for it but it's nice and placed in the middle of the commercial part of the city, so hard to miss. What I didn't like is that there is no plaque to describe it (or maybe I didn't see...More

Great spot for a photo op. It's located in a large open spot and is maybe a 10min walk from the train station.

It is a beautiful and striking monument that is hard to miss. It is in a very photogenic area and looks great in any weather.

The memorial was constructed to honour the 400 year anniversary of the invention of movable type by Johannes Gutenberg.; The 3 statues are of Gutenberg and two of his printers and patrons. A well designed and interesting tribute.

The Gutenberg-Denkmal or Gutenburg memorial is a very nice sculpture. It is in the middle of a small square surrounded by skyscrapers.

The Gutenberg-Denkmal or Gutenburg memorial is a very nice set of statues mounted on a pedestal. The top of the pedestal has the statues of Gutenburg and two others and there are smaller statues set on the lower parts of the pedestal on all sides.

In the middle of a small square there is this sculpture group surrounded by skyscapers. You should know that this is for the memory of Gutenberg, otherwise it is hard to recognise.

Stumbled upon this statue/momument in the Rossmarkt. You probably wouldn't recognize that it honors Gutenburg if you didn't know ahead of time. Wonderful statues, great facial details and expressions. Perfect for the photographer. I got some great shots but since this isn't "approved" at the...More
