    The Schwedensäule is a monument on the nature reserve Kühkopf-Knoblochsaue.
    It is reminiscent of the Rhine crossing on 21 December 1631 of the Swedish King Gustav Adolf with his troops in the Thirty Years War near Erfelden (Riedstadt).

    "December 1631 - Thirty Years' War" ...
    We stand on historical ground: For the time a military masterpiece.
    Last but not least, the course of the Rhine has also changed here: the Swedes crossed the right bank of the Rhine to the left bank of the Rhine - today both on the right bank of the Rhine ... 😉
