Also in 2016, the exhibition “GLASS SCULPTURE AND GARDEN“ will be once again the outstanding artistic event in the region of the „Lüneburger Heide“. This unique event stands alone in Germany and, besides, is the most comprehensive and longest exhibition of its kind in Europe.

In connection with the 2016 exhibition, each participating artist may show max. two large-size objects in the outdoor areas and, in addition, max. two small-scale glass sculptures in the hall of the town’s library or St. Urbani Church.
