Artistically designed steles made of Corten steel and glass mark the approximately 3 km long footpath through the impressive vineyard site. In addition to an information stele at the beginning of the trail, nine art steles await visitors along the way. In the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Upper Middle Rhine Valley, the 2-metre-high works of art highlight various aspects of living and working with and in nature. On the way through the Oelsberg, the viewer experiences nine views of and into the Rhine Valley, of beauty and challenges. Nature, art and poetry come together here.
