Artisanal sculpture "Klangspiel" on the Erbeskopf summit in the middle of the National park Hunsrück-Hochwald and the nature park Saar-Hunsrück

Penetrable sound sculpture "Windklang" on the Erbeskopf. This sculpture, designed by the sculptor C. Mancke, impressively stages the interplay of nature and the elements. Tons of stell, seemingly packed in a wooden dress, in the middle of the beautiful Hunsrück landscape, create your own music. They give the visitor a chance to experience and feel the landscape from new perspectives in his walk across the pier through the sculpture to the lookout pint. There are no limits to the immagination of the visitor. Every weather plays its own "song", so that a visit in any weather is worthwhile.

Sculpture is located in the middle of the nature park Saar-Hunsrück and the National park Hunsrück-Hochwald.
