Art in Public Spaces


There is a memorial park right in the middle of the town, in Nikolaistraße.
It includes a large monument in memory of the victims of Fascism, another in memory of those who were forced to flee or were expelled from their homes after the second world war, as well as a Holocaust memorial and a plaque related to women?s history.


Not far from the memorial park the visitor will find an interesting bronze plaque at the old ferry crossing along Müllerstraße.
It refers to the crossing of the Elbe, on 3 June 1814, by the famous Quadriga from the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin.



Thanks to its long history going back nearly 800 years, the town of Schönebeck (Elbe) has a large number of historical monuments.
Many of them have been restored and are accessible to visitors.


In 2002 the Elbuferförderverein Schönebeck e.V. (Elbe meadows conservation society) organised the International Sculptors? Symposium in Schönebeck (Elbe).


This gave rise to 8 works of art.
One sculpture is in the spa gardens in Bad Salzelmen; all the others are located on the banks of the River Elbe and had to prove their resilience in the disastrous floods that took place in August of that year.
