Skulp­turen­park Wald­frieden in Wup­per­tal provides a unique op­por­tun­ity to en­joy art while sur­roun­ded by nature. Here, the sculptor Tony Cragg has trans­formed an his­tor­ic­al park in­to a ma­gic­al ex­hib­i­tion space for out­door sculp­tures. Skulp­turen­park Wald­frieden has be­come an es­tab­lished and ex­tremely pop­u­lar at­trac­tion in North Rhine-West­phalia’s cul­tur­al land­scape.

The spa­cious park is home to an ex­tens­ive col­lec­tion of sculp­tures by Tony Cragg and many oth­er renowned con­tem­por­ary artists, in­clud­ing Markus Lüpertz, Jaume Plensa, Richard Dea­con, Eva Hild and Er­win Wurm. The per­man­ent col­lec­tion has new works by Thomas Vir­nich, Hede Bühl und Per Kirkeby. There are also top-class stand-alone ex­hib­i­tions ded­ic­ated to im­port­ant artists.

Skulp­turen­park Wald­frieden com­pares ex­tremely well to lar­ger at­trac­tions of its type: this is a place where art and nature and his­tory and the present com­bine in such a unique way that it can it­self be de­scribed as an en­semble work of art. Whatever time of the year you vis­it, Skulp­turen­park Wald­frieden prom­ises an ex­traordin­ary ex­per­i­ence.
