In July 2014, twelve sculptors from five countries (Bulgaria, Germany, Italy, Austria and the Czech Republic) created the river face sculptures for the Auenweg Obermain. They are now standing along existing cycle paths by waterways in the Upper Franconia region and form a new sculpture path across the district - the "Auenweg Obermain". This connects the existing sculpture trails in Bamberg, the Franconian Tuscany and Bad Staffelstein so that with 90 sculptures over 100 km, a sculpture landscape that is remarkable in Europe has been created.Seven of the twelve sculptures are located directly on the Main Cycle Path between Bad Staffelstein and Bischberg. From there the Regnitz Cycle Path leads directly to Bamberg and thus connects to the path of modern sculptures. The river security sculptures in Gundelsheim, Memmelsdorf and Litzendorf connect the Auenweg Obemain with the sculpture paths in Franconian Tuscany (art and reflection path, Franconian street of sculptures and figure in focus).
