Join me in a superb visit.
From 1960 the directors of the Kroller Moller Museum decided to start the biggest and best sculpture park in Europe – from scratch. Because of the enthused response by foremost sculptors, who were ready to part with their work at reduced cost, the plan succeeded. The result is one of the finest open air sculpture parks in the entire world (and I have seen most of these parks in the USA and in South Africa).
The park takes a good hour walk, or even two hours if you want to go the easy way and in-depth. The extensive grounds are wonderful, with meandering paths and vistas opening up unexpectedly. An interplay between nature and art works.

A subterranean water stream had been located by a divining medium (person). Interesting question arises… is dowsing a real craft or is a hoax? This movie about an Australian double blind test movie DISPROVES the existence of successfully dowsing with a divining rod, by putting the country’s best dowsers to the test: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=7461912885649996034
