Long Description:
This is a quite large version of general sundials.
There are  two possibilities to find the sundial:
If you start from Munich Centre, take the Underground U2 and ride to station "Messestadt Ost". When you exit the Underground in esternly direction (moving direction of the arriving trains) you will see the sundial in front of you.
If you want to start a trip in Munich you can leave your car at the Park & Ride lot directly beside the sundial coordinates (Parking is free for Underground users). On your way to the Underground you must pass the sundial.
Nearby the Underground entrance/exit there is a description how the sundial works.
Here is the translation of this description:
The edge of the funnel cast a shadow on wall and floor.
When the shadow edge is crossing the appropriate line for midwinter, midsummer, vernal equinox or autumnal equinox, the CET (Central European Time) can be metered by the hour digits.
For the months in between the time can be estimated by the date and hour lines.
Sundial Type: Armillary Sphere - series of rings in plane of equator
