While walking through the Styrian place of Haus, I came across this high-wheeler. Riding this kind of bike seems pretty uncomfortable to me. Have you ever tried such a high wheel? And do you know the term penny-farthing for this kind of bike?
On a walk through the village of Haus, I came across this sundial with a thoughtful adage. It is written in old German: ‘Eyne von diesen wird auch die deyne seyn’.
Elaborately shaped tenons (next to the lantern) seen at a wooden building in the Styrian place Haus.
Interesting detail seen at the Baroque church of Haus im Ennstal: Gentlemen are sitting at the right pews, for the ladies are the left pews reserved. On the right side, there is one row less than on the left side. That means: Gentlemen have more space between the rows.
Colorful sundial seen at a church in Haus. The phrase one can see below the sundial is a kind of memento mori: “Wer an dieser Uhr ersieht die Stunden dieser Zeit denkt deren eine schickt mich einst in die Ewigkeit”.
Only a pink sheep was witness: After a small climb, I enrolled myself into the summit register (Gipfelbuch) of the Hauser Kaibling. Speaking about sheep: There is an trail about sheep around the summit.
A cute project in Haus, a place in the Austrian province Styria: Schafsinn. At a mountain next to Haus, there is a theme path where people are told about sheep. Besides reading the info boards along the trail, you also meet the sheep grazing up and down the hill.
