Village of Sundials

The village of sundials – this nickname is owed to the numerous silent chronometers. They are located at walls or in gardens as a decoration for the entire village as a symbol for romance and culture to live on.
The sundials are fascinating to everybody, they bring tranquility and placidity to our frantic life.
Do it like a sundial - just count the sunny hours - this theme is meant to be yours when you walk through Birkenau.

Sundial Park

Since 2017 there is a lovely exhibition of  the Vinzenz Philippi sundials in a small park.
