Outside the entrance of the School of Business, Economics and Information Systems, a set of benches offer a relaxing place to check the phone, take in a bit of sunlight, or look at the trees and songbirds that visit them.
A huge willow tree stands above the walkway that leads down, under the railway bridge, and towards the Philosophicum Building. Where that tree now stands, railway tracks branching off the main line used to go into the area now taken up by the campus. Those tracks led towards the place now occupied by the refectory: once upon a time, there were slaughterhouses there, and the railways carried in livestock.
These days, the spaces under the arches of the railway bridge are often used to store bicycles. Unsurprisingly, the arches themselves are popular with graffiti taggers.
The little bridge tower is a leftover from older times: when the 'Empress Elisabeth Bridge' was built in 1869, it had four decorative towers. However, at the end of World War Two, the bridge was detonated and three of the four towers were destroyed. When the bridge was rebuilt in the immediate aftermath of the war, pretty decorations were not a priority.
Behind the trees, the green river Inn flows towards the Danube. It's a temperamental river, especially in spring, when a little flooding of the river embankments is quite common.
