On the Labyrinth Congress 2003 in Zürich (Switzerland) I got to know the Theaterwerkstatt (theater workshop) Eisingen. They performed the masque “Labyrinth”.
At this the wish to install a permament labyrinth in the Saint Josefs-Stift Eisingen was woken up. Two years later I could contribute my part to it by making the design.
On the 5th of May, 2005 the labyrinth was introduced in Eisingen to the public.
In the meantime, more than 8 years have passed. Time to have a look at it once again. Especially successful this works, e.g., from a balloon. My children recently had a single opportunity. Thus I owe these miraculous pictures to my son-in-law who could take them in the light of the setting sun on the 28th of August, 2013. Many thanks for it.
Here the layout drawing and the technical data. The path’s width (between the axes) is 1.50 m. The center has the fourfold of the path width, so 6 m. The whole diameter is 27 m. The way into the the middle amounts to 354 m. The geographic position is a N 49° 45′ 20.8″, E 9° 50′ 25.4″.
Meanwhile the labyrinth is also to be seen on Google Earth. Here in a taking from 2008:
