Me and my wife saw it in mid-January during our tour of Kaliningrad in general and its Kneiphof island (renamed Kant island by Soviet Communists) in particular. It's hard to miss it - right opposite Immanuel Kant's grave.
The day was pretty chilly so we did not spend much time admiring it.
It's a copy of a statue erected by Germans in 1891 in front of the Albertina aka Königsberg university he'd founded in 1544. As a tribute to German culture, the university was gently ruined by democratic carpet bombings by RAF in 1944 its mission finally being accomplished by the Red Army in 1945. Albrecht's statue fell down and then disappeared. Its replica was reinstalled almost on the same place in 2005, when those bloodthirsty obscurantists were no more.
A nice photo op.

The monument to the Grand Master of the Teutonic Order is located next to the cathedral and is part of the sculpture park on Kant Island.
This is a remake, but of good quality.
Great decoration for the park!

It is situated next to Kant's Tomb and the Cathedral; therefore you cannot miss it if visiting the other two. In summer, the statue is in deep shade, partially hidden by the tree branches. It provides a melancholy reminder of the University of Koenigsberg, a world-class center of learning that thrived for hundreds of years and no longer exists.
