The Hermannsdenkmal (German for Hermann monument) is located in North Rhine Westphalia in Germany in the Southern part of the Teutoburg Forest, which is southwest of Detmold in the district of Lippe. It stands on the densely forested and 386 m tall Teutberg in the ring fortification located there, which is called Grotenburg. The sword has the following inscription:

Deutschlands Einigkeit meine Stärke - meine Stärke Deutschlands Macht.
Germany's unity my strength - my strength Germany's might.

The monument commemorates the Cherusci war chief Arminius (called Herman the german)and the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest in which germanic tribes under Arminius recorded a decisive victory in 9 CE over three Roman legions under Varus.

Construction for the 53.46 m tall statue was started in 1838, but not completed until 1875 with the help of substantial funds from the state of Prussia. It was built according to plans constructed by the sculptor Ernst von Bandel.
