This sundial is situated at the St George’s Chapel of Hohensalzburg Fortress (Festung Hohensalzburg).

Thoughtful adage seen at a sundial in Haus written in old German: ‘Eyne von diesen wird auch die deyne seyn’ Literally translated it means: One of these hours will be yours. This is a kind of memento mori reminding us everybody will die one day (hour).
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”.
