Dear visitors,

Welcome to the 5th Kyllburg Art Route in the ‘Hahn’ public woodland park: We wish you an inspiring walk through a fantastic natural and cultural landscape!

It is easy to find your way along the Art Route as it is signposted. You can recognise the Art Route by the blue signs with the Art Route logo. There is a sign with a QR code for each work of art. Just scan the QR code with your smartphone and this will forward you to the Kyllburg Art Route website where you will find information about the artwork and the artist.

The Kyllburg Art Route is part of the Rhineland-Palatinate Cultural Summer for the 5th time and is supported by it. We follow the motto of the Culture Summer: ‘Compass Europe: Stars of the South’ and interpret this for 2024 as ‘Colour and Light’.

This year, the curators selected 13 artists:
Dagmar Engels, Heinz Grün, Elisabeth Hatscher, Ben Hirtz, Christof Janik, Theo Kemen, Timo Leemans, Adina Medrut, Toni Nemes, Christine Nicolay, Lydia Oermann, Amber Rijcken and Bien van Heek

Encounter nature and art with an open mind. Perhaps you will discover something that no one has ever seen before. Enjoy nature and the forest. The circular route through the ‘Hahn’ park is easily accessible, but unfortunately not barrier-free. There is a map for orientation in the centre of the Art Route booklet.
In the booklet you will find information about the artists and their artworks and the workshops and events taking place over the summer until the finissage on 5th October 2024. We would like to thank the numerous and committed cooperation partners, sponsors and local companies who support us.

The Art Route would not be possible without the commitment of so many people from Kyllburg and the region. More than 15 people work on a voluntary basis in various teams to make the Kyllburg Art Route possible. We are open to support in any form or donations.

The best starting point of the Art Route is from “Haus der Begegnung” in Kyllburg as there are plenty of parking spaces there. Groups can request a guided tour on the website

Enjoy nature and art!
