Idea and works
The path of the International Felt Art is the brainchild of Josef and Hildegard Winkler. Along a circular path, you can find some felt sculptures that could create a special symbiosis between nature and art.
The course, in its simplicity, but at the same time with his incredible charm, manages to thrill young and old! You have to do this, just watch and be amazed. The works display along the route came from all over the world and were made exclusively with sheep's wool of South Tyrol.
Among the exhibits, figures of gnomes, humans, animals or objects like cocoons hanging from the branches of trees or clinging to their trunks.
The course is open from mid-April and remains open until the weather is fine, and you can always see new creations every year.
