The Statue of the Holy Trinity (also known as the Plague Column) is located in the centre of Alter Platz square. It was originally made from wood and placed on Heiligengeistplatz in 1680 in thanksgiving for the ending of the plague. After the victory over the Turks, the crescent and the cross were added to the columns. The slender, Corinthian column bears globe, crescent and Patriarchal cross (as a symbol for the world's religions). The eastern side shows the Trinity; the pedestal is inscribed with a chronogram. The column was relocated to Alter Platz in the year 1965.
