This statue in the Hasenheide park commemorates the father of German gymnastics Friedrich Ludwig Jahn, who opened Germany’s first gymnasium here at the Hasenheide in 1811.

The statue originally stood c.100 meters north of its present location, but was relocated in 1936 when the plinth upon which it stands was also redesigned.
