The Stag

Made by class 18b at Gymnasium Interlaken, the Stag captivates viewers of all ages with its imposing scale, its impressive design using pieces of local driftwood and its delicately rendered stars. This majestic sight welcomes you on Amman-Hofer-Platz in Interlaken.

The "Stärneband"

Take a seat in it, lean back and count the stars and concealed lights of the "Stärneband". This fascinating object produced by classes SFBG 23ad is roof batten art at its finest. Made from a ton of spruce wood sourced from the Bernese Oberland, the looping structure is a place for people to meet, unwind and enjoy a chat. You can find the "Stärneband" at Train Station Interlaken Ost under the tree capony.

The Ibex Family

Just outside on the Postplatz, a family of ibex welcomes you to the scene of a cosy winter fondue. "Say Cheese" is the motto for this artwork, which was created by classes 21abc at the Gymnasium Interlaken.
