The Schömberg stone circle is in many ways a rarity, as you can probably find in Germany, not a second time.On a large meadow bordered by forest and field, about 300 meters in front of the western entrance to the Schwarzenberg district, rises an ensemble of 22 primitive sandstone finds, the highest of which tower up to 2.30 meters. Involuntarily, one has the impression of standing before the testimonies of a bygone culture. Looking closer at the stones, it is noticeable that quite a few of them are carved. One discovers archaic signs, symbols, animal forms. Anyone who has enough patience and imagination will be surprised that even faces and human figures can be read out with different shades of light and shadow.The construction of the Schömberg stone circle took place in the years 1993 to 1995 over a hitherto unprecedented school project nationwide.
Pupils and teachers from four schools in Schömberg and Bad Liebenzell, as well as a number of volunteer helpers, consultants and specialists worked for three years to create this extraordinary landscape monument. After the first visible construction progresses the project found increasing and positive press echo. It was essential that the attention and recognition of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Culture could be won. It elevated the school project to the rank of a "transnational MODEL PROJECT for cooperation between disabled and non-disabled students".
