Now it is widely completed: The vine labyrinth in the vineyard at the Geisberg of Wiesenbronn. It has more than 50 metres of diameter and is put on from about 1320 vines which are tall, in the meantime, more than 2 metres. The grapes are mature, and you can choose between 10 different types of grapes, mostly seedless.
Because one may miss the labyrinth for the vines, a look from the bird’s-eye view is recommended. And this was granted to me the past days (thanks to my son with his aircraft). I would like to share this look with the visitors of this blog.
From above one sees the whole labyrinth and can also understand rather good the alignment. This follows the Chartres labyrinth and has 9 circuits instead of 11 like the original. The first both are left out. But, otherwise, the alignment is identical. With changes, caused through the building construction, like the width or length of the paths, arrangement of the entrances and the configuration of the middle. Thereto the wine growers contrived something special. One reaches the center from two sides, shaped by a sort of room-divider in crooked form.

A short hint to a better orientation in the video: In all pictures you may see the middle of the labyrinth. And beside the room-divider stands as a small bush like a “beauty spot”. With that one can align oneself anew.
