In the town of Martinsberg, there is a place where two hiking trails meet: the long-distance Kremstalweg and the Yspertal-Weitental loop. As one of the main projects in the Lower Austrian Landesausstellung (State Exposition) in 2017, both trails were adapted and rebranded as “ECHTdeckungsrouten” (Real Discovery Trails). At the place where the two trails cross, Christine and Irene Hohenbüchler have designed a rest stop. The vibrant sculpture on which people can sit and rest reflects the artists’ continuous interest in creating places for encounters and social participation.
