A 3 m high steel donkey connected with a magnificent viewpoint. Located on the Saar-Hunsrück Climb, on the Traumschleife Murscher Eselsche and on the Traumschleifchen Murscher Aussichten.
A typical Morshausen project that began years ago during a conversation on New Year's Eve: "I have now bought a machine that can cut figures out of steel. We can do something on the donkey's ash". At some point the idea of the steel donkey came up. No sooner said than done. The graphic artist Fritz Eger painted the donkey, the steel constructor Martin Boos built it, the concrete constructor Erwin Beres took care of the fastening and many helpers brought it into the ground. There it stands now. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
