The sun carousel is an important part of the "Sekundenweg" nature trail, which runs from Tharandt to Spechtshausen.
The sun carousel stands directly opposite the "Aventinum" senior citizens' residential park in Kurort Hartha. It is a metal construction that was originally a rotating children's seesaw and sundial in one. The measuring instrument serves for the determination of seven physical - astronomical sizes. The extraordinary timekeeper was built in 1988 by the engineer Reinhard Wagner from Dresden. In the meantime, however, the use of the children's seesaw is no longer possible.
