When I recently was in downtown KLU, I noticed that the Lindwurm, the town's landmark was wrapped with white ribbons and the pedestal was wrapped in red fabric. Had Christo paid a visit? When I got closer, I saw that it had to do with a poster exhibition showing the plight of Russian POWs during WWII in Carinthia.

A sand-sculpture depicting Empress Sisi and Emperor Francis Joseph was getting its finishing touches:
