New attraction in the holiday village of Waldbrunn

The imposing sundial tower made of stainless steel and 
glass has dials aligned to the four cardinal points. 
When the sun is shining, two of the sundials usually 
show the time.
The shadow projector on the south side is aligned parallel
 to the axis of the earth and is therefore also called the 
Pole Pole. Due to the rotation of the earth, the sun "apparently" 
wanders around the pole rod and its shadow shows the true local 
time (WOZ) of Waldbrunn on the hour lines, regardless of the 
seasonally changing position of the sun.

The annual rise and fall of the sun between the tropics can be 
followed with the shadow of the sphere located at the tip of the 
pole. The diagram below the dial can be used to determine Central 
European Time (CET) or Central European Summer Time (CEST). 
The east and west sides are polar sundials because the hour lines 
point toward the celestial pole.

The annual movement of the sun between the tropics can also be 
tracked on the sundial.
Depending on the time of year, the sunset line is used to determine 
the time when the sun reaches the horizon and twilight begins. 
For example, the sun sets at around 6 p.m. on the equinoxes.

This sundial tower is a real "eye-catcher" and an absolute specialty. 
It is a holiday destination for the whole family.

The Odenwald has a lot to offer! Below you will find current events in the village of Waldbrunn as well as in the Odenwald region.

If you have never heard of Geochaching, get ready for excitement! Because this trend is not just something for well-known computer specialists. Geocaching can be called a modern treasure hunt. A lot of geocaching accessories are not necessary. The directions take place in the form of GPS coordinates, instead of exact directions. With a GPS device or an app on your smartphone the participants are led to the treasure. This consists of a box or a bucket, in which all sorts of things are hidden. If you find the treasure, take a part out and put in something new, so that the goal can always be found again and again by adventurous hikers.
