Stone Sculpture Path
Bartgeiers Z'nüni (Breakfast of the bearded vulture)
The work of the sculptor Gyelt Tuinstra consists of a four-part wood sculpture and a fairy tale. It was created in honour of the reintroduction of bearded vultures in Vättis.
As the material deteriorates, the konfiguration was changed in 2018 for safety reasons.
The book "Vättner Skulpturenweg" (Sculpturepath Vättis) was published end of novembre 2010. For more information about the book, please see our german flyer.
