    The Konig Konrad monument is dedicated to the German King Konrad I (911-918), who gave the crown to Henry of Saxony. Built in 1894, the monument stands on the rock Bodenstein above the river Lahn near Villmar.

    Konrad is considered the first German king. At his death in Weilburg on December 23, 918, he caused with the Weilburg will his brother Eberhard to renounce the throne and the transfer of royal insignia to the Saxon Duke Henry.

    Made of Belgian sandstone, 2.32 meters high statue stands on a pedestal from Lahnmarmor. Originally the monument was surrounded by a wrought-iron lattice. The statue shows the king in the gesture of Kronübergabe. The inscription on the pedestal reads: Konrad I, 911-918, German king and count of the Lahngau transferred in faithful care for the realm security and power dying Heinrich of Saxonia crown and rule. The monument is a symbol of the district and a reference to imperial history in the 19th century.

    There he stands, King Konrad .... he is considered the first German king. And his birthplace Weilburg did not want the monument. Incidentally, the king once held a crown in his hand. This was repeatedly stolen. Parking very close!

    The monument is located directly on the busy road, there is no footpath. My tip for hikers with good shoes:
    At the height of the house at König-Konrad-Straße 34 on the road from Villmar to Runkel, a narrow path leads up the edge of the old Kisselbruch. After a short climb, you reach the Peace Cross, which was first built in 1946 by wooden war returnees. Follow the mountain path until it joins the road again at the monument.
