The International Monument to the Reformation known as the Reformation Wall honors many of the main individuals, events, and documents of the Protestant Reformation by depicting them in statues and bas-reliefs.

It's a great piece of art. Very nice wall with sculptures of main persons of Reformation. It is located in a beautiful park. It's probably not a must-see, though.

The park is full of entertaining statues and art exhibits explained both in English and French. The carvings in stone are interesting but lack much explanation. There is also oversized chess and checkers boards open for play.

This was not far from the Cathedral, and was well worth making the effort to find. A wonderfully done monument remembering the pillars of the Reformed Christian Faith. Thankful to get to see this in person.

It is an impressive wall and obviously relates big time to the history of this town ... love to pass by and spend a little while watching it!

Great garden to take a rest stop and enjoy a cool sunny day. The Reformation Wall is an impressive structure to view. Other than that enjoy the gardens and a nice stroll instead.
