    Brilliant the art object "foresight". Two large stainless steel mirrors are mounted on rotating axles.

    The Türkenlouis recognized with strategic foresight that the Palatinate War of Succession would not be decided on the Upper Rhine, but in the Netherlands. The region on the Upper Rhine was secured by the Eppinger line. Watchtowers were used to observe enemy troops at locations with a wide view. After World War II, Konrad Adenauer and Charles de Gaulle showed great political vision with the Franco-German friendship treaty as the basis for the reconciliation process of the “hereditary enemies”. The hiker enjoys the panoramic view of the landscape. Two large stainless steel mirrors in a baroque frame allow playing with changing perspectives at the Altenberg viewpoint.
