stones of the sun
Prof. Paul Schneider - an internationally known sculptor- has been living in our village since 1978 when he chose Bietzen as a place of artistic inspiration. As part of the German-French project "stones at the border" 12 of his abstract sculptures were placed on the hill Bietzerberg as symbols of friendship and mutual understanding between the two countries.
The spring Bietzener Heilwasser on the Bietzener Wiesen (meadows): it is a healthy resting place for visitors, cyclists or hikers. Both the Merziger Gesundheitsbad and Saline are fed by this natural medicinal spring.
