Basel Off The Beaten Path: 38 reviews and 60 photos
The Strasbourg Monument was created by August Bartholdi in 1895 (whose most famous work is the Statue of Liberty in New York). It was a gift from the citizens of Strasbourg to say thanks to Switzerland for the help for the hardly damaged Strasbourg in the war 1870/71.
The figures depict and angel guarding women and children, the reliefs show the help in the damaged city and the legendary boat ride with the millet gruel pot 1476, reminding of the centuries old friendship between Switzerland and Strasbourg.
