Sculptures at St. Margarethen
An ancient Roman quarry in the town of St. Margarethen is home to a vast collection of over 100 stone sculptures, amassed during the European Sculpture Symposia, which celebrated 50 years in October 2009. Founded by artist Karl Prantl in 1959 this symposium is considered to be the first of its kind throughout the world.
The website offers a wide range of photos of these monumental works. There is also a St. Margarethen Sculpture Symposium blog: http://bildhauersymposion.wordpress.com/ (in German).
Open to the public all year round.
