The end

The monument Das Ende in the Bremer Wallanlagen in Bremen - Mitte was erected there in 1978 and is included in the list of monuments and statues of the city of Bremen .

The 1.5 × 2.0 meter monument made of bronze on stone was created in 1978 based on a design by the sculptor Bernd Altenstein (* 1943). It stands by the bishop's needle , an earlier gate in the Bremen city wall .

The explanatory text in the list of Bremen monuments states:

“While the people stroll along in the ramparts, they meet someone who throws himself through a wall at the level of the bishop's needle in Bremen-Mitte. The type of movement reveals that the person is moving quickly and powerfully and, as if in a big run-up, crosses into another room that is not visible. The title of the bronze work Das Ende leaves open which end it is. "

The ambiguous addition to the sculpture by a stranger "That would not have happened with glasses" made people smile.

The sculptor Altenstein comes from Bremen a. a. also the monuments Fietje Balge an der Balge , Waller Talks on Wartburgplatz in Walle , Four Seasons in the Bürgerpark , a fountain sculpture in Reeder-Bischoff-Straße and Our Planet on the Domshof .
