The sculpture “Ikarus” by Angelina Androvic Gradisnik which had previously been at the Aero Flight building in the Lessingstraße was moved to new location in the Adenauerallee.

The building is due to be demolished, so the sculpture was purchased by a local resident and is on permanent loan to the town.

Next to the sculpture in the photo are the artist with mayor Hans-Georg Brum.
