The Wehlen orchards are, like the famous Wehlen vineyards on the opposite bank of the Moselle, a cultural landscape that has been shaped and cultivated since time immemorial.
Experience and discover the orchard meadows nature reserve in Wehlen! Meadows, pastures, fruit trees and woody plants form an interesting landscape mosaic: small-scale and yet extensive.Along the route, stone sculptures and glass art trails by the artists Heidemarie and Mic Leder provide information about the flora and fauna of the orchard meadows.Insights into the hiking tour:The circular trail "Wehlener ObstArt" wants to point out the beauty of the landscape, it invites the visitors to observe and get to know the nature, the animals and plants. Special feature: Instead of information boards, there are objects and sculptures made of painted glass, stone and metal along the way. The 11 installations and themes take up forms from the orchards, e.g. the column form of the tree trunks and the round shape of the fruits. Some of the usual proportions have been changed and thus want to offer the new perspectives of the viewer.
By appointment (Mosel-Gäste-Zentrum Bernkastel-Kues, Tel. +49 (0)6531-500190) guided tours of the ObstArtWeg can be organised for groups.
