  • In celebration of the 50 years we plant the new apple trees and establish a space with benches where anyone who wants, can get a little mental break and let their thoughts fly for a while: The Apple Grove will be situated close to the large ceramic artwork "Egg" at entrance R.
    The space will be ready for September 15, and the five apple trees with different, local sorts of apples will be planted in the autumn.
    The Apple Grove will be a lasting memory like the three selected quotes that have been chiseled into the granite stairs at the high pillar in front of the main entrance.
