Schönthal

Deep in the picturesque Jura countryside, around the former monastery of Schönthal, not far from Langenbruck, there is a sculpture park showing nature-inspired works by international artists.  

Artists from Switzerland and overseas have provided site-specific sculptures for the fields and forests around the former monastery of Schönthal near Langenbruck. Before producing their work, they familiarised themselves with the monastery and its history, and with the ancient countryside. The collection is quietly growing and is essentially a work in progress. Currently, 31 works by 22 artists line the trails and paths.
Visitors are free to discover the 100-hectare sculpture park in their own time and at their own pace; sturdy footwear is recommended. The works can be discovered over the course of a one-and-a-half to four-hour walk, depending on how much time you want to spend at this meeting place for art and nature. For all-weather visitors, the sculpture park is accessible all year round. Temporary art exhibitions are held inside the monastery.
The way from Langenbruck village is signposted and takes about 20 minutes.
