Old Abbey Park

The park of the Old Abbey is home to rare exotic trees and historical buildings, as well as the oldest religious building in the greater region, the Old Tower, with its octagonal floor plan. Built as a burial chapel for St. Luitwinus, the building is over 1,000 years old and has been extensively restored in recent years.

Stones at the border

There are 26 stone works of art on an old border road. These artworks were made by 25 artists from three continents. The project is called “Stones at the Border”. Sculptor and professor Paul Schneider had the idea. He comes from Saarland. The path starts near Büdingen. It goes through the middle of vast fields all the way to France. The project is a sign of the neighbourly relationship between the two countries.
