Sculpture Border Konstanz-Kreuzlingen

Since April 2007, the line of the border between Germany and Switzerland is no longer marked by a fence but by a sculpture border - unique throughout the world. For realising the sculpture border, Konstanz artist Johannes Dörflinger designed a work of art comprising 22 individual sculptures. The objects represent the trumps of the tarot, the "Great Arkana".
