While I walked through Merano in Italy, I came across this sundial. I was impressed how many elements and codes are compiled in this depiction. For example one can see the motto of Friedrich III. (AEIOU) as well as a skull with an hour glass on top of it.
In a park of Merano I came across a monument to Empress Elisabeth of Austria who was a very important guest in Merano. It happens to be I met her twice on this day. My trip ended in Vienna where I saw another monument at the railway station Wien Westbahnhof.
After visiting an exhibition about tourism at the Touriseum in the rooms of Trauttmansdorff Castle I had a nice walk through the gardens. It was a great experience to see such a wonderful landscape of plants in a region not far away from the Alps. [German]
