Festival Grounds

Local Artist Roman Sonderegger has transformed the grounds around the entrance area of the “Alte Reithalle” using a considerable amount of wooden boards. He reworked these into various organic and geometric shapes and impressive sized Sculptures. By expanding and layering materials on top of each other, Roman has managed to create unique spaces, walkable landscapes for discovery. He will certainly be pleased if the Public uses these spaces to relax and regenerate.


The Alte Reithalle Aarau is located at Apfelhausenweg 20, close to the train station.
