Bike Touring Highlight
A bronze stele by sculptor Joseph Michael Neustifter has been unveiled in the area in front of Blutenburg Castle since September 14, 2013. It was donated by the Obermenzinger couple Ursula and Fritz Heimbüchler as a reminder of the love between Duke Albrecht III and the bathing daughter Agnes Bernauer. So far there has been no reference to the tragic events between 1430 and 1435 around the young Albrecht and his partner, who was finally drowned in the Danube by Albrecht's father, Duke Ernst.After several years of preparation, a suitable place for the plant was finally found. The stele with many small details to be discovered is intended as a response to the history of the castle, the inclination of the two heads is the symbol of falling in love (source: blutenburg.de).
