The main point of interest for me elsewhere in the city was the 1845 bronze statue of Beethoven, by Ernst Hähnel, standing in front of the post office (originally the Fürstenbergisches Palais) in Münsterplatz, looking quite stern and academic in his robes. I note that he’s holding a pencil, but I suppose quills are difficult to do... The weather was dreary, but was brightening up slightly the following morning for the image of the station, just before I took the train to Mannheim.
