Street art in Poysdorf

Street art in Poysdorf, Austria

Poysdorf, a place famous for its wine in the Austrian state of Lower Austria, is coverd with 100+ depictions of wine bottles each decorated by a different artist. Love No. 55 which I found in the beginning of the hollow way Radyweg.

Vineyard goat in Poysdorf

Vineyard goat at the Hall of Grapes in Poysdorf, Austria

An exhibit with an interesting story seen at the Hall of Grapes in Poysdorf is the vineyard goat (Weinbeergoaß). This symbol is said to go back to a biblical story of Noah: After observing a goat eating grapes he tried them for himself and became the father of winegrowing.

The Klopotec is used as a bird scarer in the vineyards of traditional wine-growing landscapes of Slovenia, Austria, and Croatia. The pic above was taken in the Slovene region of Prekmurje. In Austria the same device is generally known as Klapotetz or Klapotez.
