The "Siegesdenkmal" (Victory Monument) on the bottom of Friedrichring, was officially opened by Kaiser Wilhelm I on October 3, 1876. Its creator was the sculptor Karl Friedrich Moest, from Karlsruhe.
In 1963, the monument was moved some hundred meters west due to the construction of a new intersection for bus and tram lines.
This led to an appreciable disturbance of the monument square's former optical unity.
The monument is designed in memory of the 14th Army Corps of Baden's participation in the Franco-Prussian War.
