The 18-meter-high obelisk is one of the oldest monuments in the city. The obelisk, made of sandstone, is decorated with garlands of medallions and stands on a square pedestal on whose four sides inscription panels can be seen.
Monument on the occasion of the first visit of the Archbishop of Mainz and Erfurt city lord Friedrich Karl Joseph von Erthal, 1777
Stands on the cathedral square.
The Obelisk is a striking meeting place and the steps are also suitable for rest, because benches are unfortunately hardly on the cathedral square, this is definitely a shortcoming
