Town wall of Wiener Neustadt

Mural depicting the town wall

An interesting way to learn about the former town wall of Wiener Neustadt. At the Reyergasse 10 I saw this mural depicting the walls around the city. Some parts are still to see. E.g. the Reckturm dating back to 13th century is placed at the north-western corner of the city.

The painted house of Graz

Painted house in Graz, Austria

This colourful house in my city is generally known as Gemaltes Haus (Painted House). Actually it was the seat of a duke until about 1450, so the official name is Herzogshof (Duke’s court). By the way the top down conifers were part of the Christmas decoration at that time.

Mural at the hall of Bratislava central station

Mural at the hall of Bratislava Central Station

Mural at the hall of Bratislava hlavná stanica (Bratislava central station). Though it is the central station of Bratislava this railway station is not that large. I wonder if the object at the upper edge of the mural is showing a comet or a technical space object like Sputnik?

While waiting for my train back to Vienna I had a look at the mural decorations in one of the side halls of the Railway Station Keleti pályaudvar also known as Keleti Pu. Do you know more railway stations with such fine decorations?
