Bike Touring Highlight
In the middle of the landing place stands Peter Lenk's sculpture "Bodenseereiter".Description cited after peter-lenk.de/skulpturen/baden-wuerttemberg/ueberlingen/walserbrunnen/beschreibung.htmlIn Gustav Schwab's famous ballad of the Bodenseereiter, his messenger mistakenly wanders over the frozen lake and dies of fright as he learns afterwards. Schwab's historical model from the 16th century, however, knew exactly what he was doing, ignoring all warnings and survived with a beer in the Gasthaus Krone.
Today's rider writes his messages himself. Poet, immortalized and suitable for promenades: Martin Walser. With in the fountain ensemble: Two bank directors and the mother-in-law. "If I had known that before, it would never have been approved!" The mayor laughingly said after the revelation. P.L.Not so easy to find, in the garden of Gasthof Krone, is another sculpture by Peter Lenk, the "Napoleonic Monument", s. peter-lenk.de/skulpturen/baden-wuerttemberg/ueberlingen/napoleondenkmal.html
