The site of the monument was previously occupied by the Elbpavillon restaurant which was removed in 1901 Mayor Johann Georg Mönckeberg established a citizens' commission to erect the monument at the site

The Bismarck Monument cost 500,000 Goldmarks,[1] and construction finished in 1906[2] The building of the monument was documented by the photographer Wilhelm Weimar, who worked for the Hamburg Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe


The monument is approximately 35 m 115 ft high, weighs 600 t 590 long tons; 660 short tons, and is the world's largest Bismarck monument[1][2]

Designers created a large network of catacombs beneath the monument During the years 1939 to 1940, they became an air-raid shelter offering protection for up to 650 people[2] The architect's intent for the catacombs remain unknown however they, and the entire monument interior, are no longer accessible for safety reasons During the 1970s, a soldier who served with the British army during the occupation in Germany discovered a tunnel beneath the Bismarck memorial while in Hamburg which led to a Nazi hideout He contacted the Daily Mirror newspaper and they contacted the Burgermeister in Hamburg After viewing the tunnel as the soldier had just described it, the tunnel was sealed[citation needed]
