At the edge of the Tiergarten is an unusual path, the Katharina-Heinroth-Ufer, which runs between the southern bank of the Landwehr Canal and the bordering Zoologischer Garten (Zoological Garden). The exit is closed at dusk, at 9.00 pm at the latest. During the day, however, many walkers are attracted by the exotic sounds and by a clear view of the animals without having to pay. Right under Lichtensteinbrücke (Lichtenstein Bridge) a massive cast-iron plate has been installed, dropped diagonally into the water on which the name of Rosa Luxemburg appears in raised capital letters. It marks the spot where the murdered revolutionary was thrown into the canal. Only a few hundred metres further to the North, a memorial on a meadow on the bank of the Neue See (New Lake) reminds one of Karl Liebknecht’s murder. Both memorials carry the stamp “Kunstguss VEB Lauchhammerwerk 1987” (Art casting VEB Lauchhammerwerk 1987).
