The European Academy of Otzenhausen is located not far from the impressive Celtic circular wall of Otzenhausen (“Hunnenring“), the seat of a prince of the Treveri tribe. So it comes as no surprise that several events and projects from both the fields of education and culture have been linked with the “Celtic theme”.

Cerda & Celtoi

“Cerda & Celtoi“ (art & Celts) stands for a sculpture trail inspired by the Celts that has connected the European Academy of Otzenhausen with the “Hunnenring” since 2007. What makes it so special is that the 18 sculptures made of iron, sandstone or wood were created by artists from the former Celtic settlement area from Ireland to Spain and Turkey. The artists worked in the Academy park between 2005 and 2007.

The approximately 7-km sculpture trail winds through the forest in spectacular mountain scenery with bizarre rock formations and magnificent views.

Celtic art at the EAO

Various corridors and floors of the European Academy of Otzenhausen are dedicated to a specific theme – such as the Celts. Art fans will find a corridor with Celtic collages in Building C and a photo documentation of the creation of the Celtic sculpture trail and other works by the artist Gliaugir in the lower level of the Europaeum near the Infopoint. In addition, several works of the Cerda & Celtoi sculpture trail inspired by the Celts are on display on the Academy grounds and indoors.
