Wittgenstein-Sauerland Wood Sculpture Path

The Wood Sculpture Path, created between 2000 and 2010 leads from Bad Berleburg in the Siegerland-Wittgenstein district and Schmallenberg in the Sauerland. On the Rothaarsteig access paths from the two towns, it takes just 23 kilometres to cross the Rothaar ridge, on which it also crosses the Rothaarsteig at Kühhude. With their works of art along the edge of the Wood Sculpture Path, internationally known artists have created a unique artistic hiking trail which, in Germany at least, is unique. During the project, which has run over a number of years, all 11 works of art have now been completed. The artists were thus given sufficient time for them to create first class results. The landscape surrounding the works of art is above all characterised by spruce in the area of the ridge and by mixed woods in the valleys. Use the Wood Sculpture Path as a gateway to a holiday on both sides of the Rothaar ridge. Because both locations, Bad Berleburg in the Wittgenstein area and Schmallenberg in the Sauerland have a great deal more to offer.
