Unofficial Park 1 of 2 Photos

Located at top of the Weinbergterrassen (vineyard terraces)

There has been a dispute over the development of this spot between wealthy investors and the local residents who have been using this ‘undeveloped land’ as part of their walk through the terraces. An activist group in the city is currently fighting to include the land as part of the terraces and off limits to investors. We feel that since the organizers of documenta(13) exhibited sculptures on the terraces as part of the exhibition, there should have been some support from the curator/organizers of the fight to retain this lot as an extension of the park.

Lego-person Graffiti

Blog entry by anonymous person:

“There is a lego-graffiti at the wall of the bridge near the location of the 'bunker' entry."
