    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.

    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
