"In the course of a comprehensive redesign of the inner city, an urban planning concept was sought in a first architecture competition in 1924 to redesign the Burgplatz in a big city. As a result, the area of the square, which had previously sloped to the east, was straightened and connected to Burgstrasse with a wide staircase. In 1928 the equestrian statue was finally moved to its current location on the southwestern edge of Burgplatz, near the Lichtburg building, directly on Burgstrasse, with a new, simplified base without a terrace." 2017 360° picture of statue in current location at
