Sundials in
Berlin and around

The following list leads to sundials from within and around Berlin, which were collected (partly by random) since 1995 for the Sky over Berlin. The main reason for the collection is the daylight savings time, while most of the sundials only counting the happy hours of the local solar time, untouched by the human funnies like time shift, time zones, leap years, leap days, leap seconds...

These page sshould be viewed best with any browser, although a browser capable to show images might have some advantages. My preferred window size is 760x600, but if you like to read half-a-meter text lines, you may even try 1024x768 or more.

The older pictures were scanned with a HP ScanJet IIcx and converted to GIF or JPEG with Photoshop 2.5LE on an Apple Macintosh Centris if not otherwise specified. The newer pictures were scanned with a HP scanjet 3570c on an Apple iBook or digitally photographed with an Olympus E-100RS.

If you are looking for more sundials, Daniel Roth is maintaining a page with many Sun Dial Links around the world. For more links and sundials you can also visit the UK page Sundials on the Internet and the US page of the North American Sundial Society. For other clocks and more about counting time you can visit the homepage about horology. In 2004 the Mars Rover Spirit and Opportunity landed on Mars and had a sundial with them which became the Astronomy Picture of the Day 10. January 2004. The Astronomy Picture of the Day 26. June 2012 shows a very special sundial for solstice and equinox.
