landscape installation near schönberg

The Mondrohr (Moon Pipe) is located on the "Kavalrienberg" between Schönberg and Stiefern (a "Kavalrienberg" being one of the countless hills referred to as "Mount Cavalry" in Austria, where the Stations of the Cross are mapped onto the landscape) . This artwork combines the qualities of an oversized telescope and a light source. It is visible from both towns, especially at night when, after dusk, it appears like a full moon that can be seen for miles around. During the day we can look through the corrugated steel pipe from both sides.
