Creation trail
“In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty". Thus begins the most famous book in the world and the tale of how the universe was created. No place known to man reflects the biblical origin of stars, light and life quite like the quaint shapes of an Alpine landscape. Perhaps this is the reason why an attempt was made on the Rodenecker-Lüsner Alp to capture the milestones in the history of Creation and to reproduce them in seven extraordinary, inspiring works of art.
