The 2.32 meter high statue made of Belgian sandstone stands on a base made of Lahn marble. Originally, the monument was surrounded by a wrought iron grille. The statue shows the king in the gesture of handing over the crown. The inscription on the base reads: Konrad I, 911-918, German King and Count of the Lahngau, dying in faithful care for the security and power of the empire, transferred crown and rule to Heinrich of Saxony. The monument is a landmark of the district and a testament to the imperial history in the 19th century.
