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
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.
