Sculpture walk Hoher Fläming
The Kunstwanderweg Hoher Fläming (Upper Fläming sculpture walk) is a collection of sculpture walks in the Upper Fläming natural park" in Brandenburg, about 100 km, or an hour's train ride south of Berlin located between the railway stations at Bad Belzig and Wiesenburg/Mark. The 17 km long, so-called north route was opened on 5. August 2007. The 16 km long so-called south route was opened on 8. May 2010. There are plans for a variety of connecting paths. The "Naturparkverein Fläming e.V." association planned and implemented both routes. The projects were financed via the European Community LEADER programme.
The north route
10 works of art relating to the landscape have been installed along the north route. These were chosen from 114 submissions to a German federal competition by a jury chaired by Prof. Rolf Kuhn, the general manager of the Internationale Bauausstellung Fürst-Pückler-Land. An Internationale Bauausstellung (IBA) or Internationale architecture exhibition is a German political instrument for urban engineering and architecture, to show new concepts in terms of social, cultural and ecological ideas.

The county of art - Upper Fläming
Artistic work in Upper Fläming is presented under the title of "The county of art - Upper Fläming". A project group working under the aegis of the Naturparkverein Fläming e.V. conceives artistic projects in Upper Fläming and implements them. In 2006, their first project was "Traces of art" ("Kunstspur"), a 2.5 km long walking route, presenting works of art produced by local artists. Following the implementation of the north route of the sculpture walk in 2007 and the south route in 2010, more projects are being planned.
