Here the sight of a few cows defying gravity and walking along the sides of a building greets passersby. This whimsical street art installation will make you stop in your tracks and marvel at its eccentricity. Designed by artist Sergej Dott, the art features life-size cows grazing on a vertical patch of meadow. Dott is known for his quirky and pun-intended pieces of modern art.

Standing tall at the center of Florin’s market in Koblenz, Augenroller is a clock tower notoriously famous for mocking passersby. At the crown of the tower, overlooking the marketplace is the sheet-metal visage of Johan Lutter, a 16th-century thief. Remarkably, the eyes of the robber move right to left along with the pendulum, and as the clock strikes an hour or half an hour, the robber’s tongue sticks out in a mocking gesture. According to folklore, on his deathbed, Lutter made a similar expression to mock his horde of victims.

Florinsmarkt 15, Koblenz, Duitsland, 56068
Flintsbach Historical Cemetery

Adjoining the ethereal St. Martin Church in Flintsbach am Inn, Flintsbach Historical Cemetery is an old German graveyard.

Yet another remarkable feature here is an ossuary, which houses a few skulls. Although a tad macabre and eerie in nature, the Flintsbach Historical Cemetery continues to attract throngs of discerning travelers.

Jerome's Sliding Jail

Clinging to the sloping inclines of the hilly terrain, which comprises the town's landscape, the Sliding Jail is one of Jerome's most recognizable landmarks. While the jail managed to endure aftershocks from a dynamite explosion in 1938, the blasts pushed it off-kilter and resulted in the structure's descent down the slope. Today, it is regarded as one of Jerome's most well-known attractions and is a popular spot for those visiting the town.

Hull Avenue, Jerome, AZ, Verenigde Staten, 86331

Imsil Cheese Theme Park

If you are obsessed with cheese, a visit to the Imsil Cheese Theme Park in Imsil should definitely be on your bucket list. For a country that did not taste cheese until 1958, building Imsil Cheese Theme Park seemed like compensation for all the years lost without knowing the taste of cheese. As the name suggests, Imsil Cheese Theme Park is all about cheese; from a cheese playground and cheese wheel buildings to cheese statues — everything is adorned with cheese. Here, you can also learn about the process involved in cheese making and taste the different varieties of cheese manufactured in Imsil. This place is a cheese lover's paradise in its truest sense.

Statue of a Quarter Pounder

If you happen to pass by Interstate 90, the humungous bronze statue of McDonald’s Quarter Pounder burger is likely to catch your eye. Rising to a height of nine feet, this statue was built to commemorate the decadent Quarter Pounder burger which has been served at McDonald’s for over 50 years. The statue is constructed on a granite pedestal and the phrase “hot and deliciously juicy” has been carved in Latin, signifying a feature that makes it one of the most liked fast-food items among the locals in the city. The statue is sculpted by a Utah-based sculptor, Raymond Gibby, and almost took 1800 hours to erect. Several passersby often halt at the spot to grab a picture with the ginormous burger.
