It is in plain view as you come out of the train station. (Where they also hold the annual Christmas Market). If you are walking by, take a look but it's not a "let's go just to see it" close by is shopping

Not much to see. Busy square with large equestrian monument right outside of train station. Some restaurants and shops nearby but prefer the old town further on.

Dominant-looking statue in front of the main railway station. Nice symbolism in the statue, all the way to the dressing of horseman. Hard to miss.

It is a monument in front of the central station, so you must see it, it can not be missed. Good place for meeting point, nothing else.

Not much to say about this other than it’s a statue. More interestingly some french music was playing from the sewer under a nearby manhole cover.

Being in front of the HBF does not do justice to this grand statue, but is worth the effort in taking a moment to admire it.
