This is Budapest's latest landmark: it's eight meters high and doesn't actually tell the time. Instead, it is to be ceremonially turned over each New Year (at midnight of course) and the large amount of sand inside will then flow down, symbolising the relentless passing of time. It's a great idea for a new and interesting New Year tradition.
This is a real curiosity. We found out at the site that the Timewheel is actually the world's largest hourglass and that this gigantic object (60 tons) is actually turned over at the end of every year by human power! Don't miss it when in Budapest, it's a few steps from Heroes' Square.
