“The monument stands on a wooded hillside opposite Bingen and overlooking the Rhine valley. The great base, 82 feet high, supports an impressive figure of Germania, 34 feet high, with the imperial crown and the laurel-wreathed sword. On the side of the pedestal facing the river is a design symbolizing ‘The Watch on the Rhine.’ The other sides of the pedestal bear designs representing various scenes in the Franco-German War."—Webster, 1920
