TOUR FEEDBACK

When I finally arrived the last stop at Prinz-Carl-Palais, I was amost a little bit sad that the tour is already over. Very entertaining!

So, next time when you visit me, I will know to tell you the story of this statue and why a king chose an Angel of Peace as symbol of a war victory.
