Sundial on Reichenau Abbey

Sundial on Reichenau Island, Germany

This sundial is located on a wall of Reichenau Abbey on Reichenau Island. It shows not only the motto ‘Pray and Work’ (ora et labora) but also Saint Pirmin, the founder of Reichenau Abbey. The two snakes refer to the fact that he is considered to be a patron against snake bites.

Heinkel Kabine in Constance

Heinkel Kabine in Constance, Germany

Ha, isn’t it a cutie? I saw this microcar – generally known as Heinkel Kabine – at the Internationale Bodenseewoche. This traditional festival takes place at the harbour of Constance’s historic city centre. It’s not only a meeting point for lovers of classic cars but also for power boats. [German]
