Bad Säckingen
Castle Gardens

A statue of the Trompeter von Säckingen ("trumpeter of Säckingen") adorns a pond in the castle gardens. Emblem of the city, this trumpeter is the hero of an 1853 poem by Joseph Victor von Scheffel, a German writer and poet who was widely read in the 19th century but remains unknown outside German-speaking countries.
