Art on the sculpture trail

The cemetery can not only be a place of remembrance, but also a place of encounter and cultural diversity: With this in mind, the sculpture trail was established at Radolfzell Forest Cemetery in 2022. A wide variety of sculptures by 16 regional artists can be discovered at the popular open-air art exhibition. Due to its popularity, the permanent exhibition has been extended until March 2025.

Works by the following members of the Baden-Württemberg Association of Freelance Sculptors will be on display: Claudia Dietz, Jan Douma, Heike Endemann, Hans Schüle, Claudia Dietz, OMI Riesterer, Susanna Giese, Barbara Jäger, Jörg Failmezger, Uli Gsell, Birgit Rehfeldt, Rüdiger Seidt, Christoph Traub and Frank Teufel. Vincenz Repnik from Radolfzell will also be exhibiting his sculpture “Schutzmanteltaube”. A flyer on the sculpture trail, on which all the works of art are illustrated and described, can be viewed and downloaded from the website of the cultural office: Further flyers can be found in an information box on the sculpture trail itself.

All the sculptures are placed in the greenery along a path that stretches between the main entrance and the chapel of the Radolfzell Forest Cemetery. The path is accessible for self-guided tours during the cemetery’s opening hours.

The sculptures on display are for sale. Further information: Jan Drews (Head of Cemetery Department),, 07732 1698

Sculpture symposium

The sculpture symposium in Mettnaupark took place for the first time in May 2015 and will be repeated every two to three years. The format brings art and its creation into the public space and thus directly to the people. Internationally renowned sculptors relocate their artistic workshop to the Mettnau peninsula for a week under the open sky. Visitors can follow the creation process of the artworks live. Wood, stone, metal – sawing, chiseling, welding – the materials and methods used in artistic work are very different.

Following the Sculpture Symposium 2022, the artworks were exhibited in Mettnaupark and can be purchased. On sale are “Gischt” by Heike Endemann, “Heinz” by Birgit Feil, “hoch hinaus” by Jan Douma, “Aufwind” by Vincenz Repnik and “wachsen, werden” by Beate Leinmüller.

Interested parties can view the works of art in Mettnaupark until May 3, 2024.
