Wood- and stonecarving in the seven mountains-Siebengebirge

Sculpture Courses in Germany


The skyline of Siebengebirge - i.e. seven hills – is the Romantic Rhine Valley at its best. It is here where one of the loveliest areas of Germany begins. Löwenburg is situated in the middle of one of the oldest Natural Forest Reservations. Second of the seven hills, at a height of 455 m, it offers a splended panoramic view overlooking the mounainous Eifel  as far as to the area around Cologne. With its many castle ruins and e.g. the famous Rock of Loreley, the Middle Rhinevalley belongs to Germany´s touristic highlights. The nearby cities of Cologne and of Bonn offer many sights to be visited, like Beethoven´s birthplace, the governmental buildings of the former capital city with its renowned museums, Roman churches, not to speak of famous Cologne Cathedral.

In the traditional orchard of Löwenburger Hof you are invited to take part in one of our sculpture courses. You may discover there - in a relaxed atmosphere – your own creative talents by working with stone or wood.

The courses are open to beginners as well as to more advanced sculptors, aged over 16, but if accompanied by an adult, younger persons aged over 13 are admitted.

We teach basic techniques of sculpturing, abstract or figurative work, in accompanying you in your individual development and the realization of your ideas in different materials. You can choose among various kinds of stone or wood. All necessary tools will be provided.

The aim of the courses is to accomplish one piece of personal work. In a space of three square metres, reserved to each participant, you will work protected under a tent.

Come in weather proof clothing and don’t forget to bring along a maximum of enthusiasm!

On the last day a party will be organized, where family and friends will be welcome as guests.

During the courses German and English is spoken.

In order to assure individual coaching and concentrated work, the total number of participants is limited to 15 persons.
