The topic of my research during the NIAS year was the seven-stories-high ‘Mathematical Tower’ (‘Mathematische Turm’) of the Benedictine Abbey of Kremsmünster in Upper Austria (built between 1748 and 1759), which represents one of the few still existing examples in which a museum and an astronomical observatory had been combined.
