This came as a surprise to us, but a section of the Berlin Wall is within Eureka Springs! It is humbling to stand by this section of history, and good to not have to venture to a larger metropolis in order to see it. It is located a bit further from the downtown area, making it easy to park and simple to walk around and enjoy yourself.

Christ of the Ozarks
Whether this is your religion or not, there is no doubt that this 65+ foot statue of Jesus Christ is impressive. It comes upon you quite suddenly as you are driving the forested roads of Magnetic Mountain. There is plenty of area to park, walk, and take photos without dealing with a busy city center. Best of all is that it is practically next door to the piece of the Berlin Wall.

Thorncrown Chapel is a must for all fans of beautiful architecture. Nestled deep within the trees, it is stunning to behold. It is free to wander around and enjoy the chapel, but be wary of going at a time when there is a service. It is a bit of a drive from the main part of the city, as well.
