On 09.06.1996 the then Rhineland-Palatinate Minister of Culture Rose Götte opened the "Sculpture Park Oberwesel".Together with the DiDa-Art chairwoman Barbara Höhn, she presented the first path in the north of the sculpture path Rhineland-Palatinate in Oberwesel to the public. On the romantic Middle Rhine, which is heavily frequented by tourists, the sculpture park shows how exciting the dialogue between modern art and old architecture can be. The Oberwesel Sculpture Park is not actually a self-contained unit. Rather, it is individual pieces of artwork that lead the interested viewer from the Rhine facilities through the vineyards up to the Rhine Heights near Urbar.The Troll Trail, which has grown over the years, provides an interesting and amusing diversion between the main exhibition areas on the Rhine and on the heights.

Author’s recommendation

The hike can be complemented with a tour of the town walls in Oberwesel for cultural history.
