In 2024, for us everything revolves around the wheel - a symbol of endless movement and the infinity of possibilities and adventures. We bring together the cycles of the wheel and the year in this calendar. The wheel represents the constant flow and the circular calendar gives the continuous change an appropriate form.

The calendar is composed of a number of rings around the inner circle. From the outside to the inside these rings show:
moon phases, fields for personal notes, official holidays (in Germany, Austria and Switzerland), fields for your own markings, dates and days of the week, calendar weeks, and months.
One large field offers space for personal notes from appointments to birthdays, holidays and other special occasions, celebrations, your ski vacation, your hiking or your cycling trip. Three other rings are intended for graphical markings, like for instance athletic activities, visits to the movies, or the theater, or your personal count of the days since you gave up smoking. At the end of the year you have created a personal, infographic over the course of your year 2024.
The Gregorian calendar is based on the seasons and thus on the tropical year on earth, which has a length of approximately 365.242 days. In order to balance this number with the 365 years of a calendar year we add an extra leap day every four years, which equals 0.25 days per year. To further approach the remaining rest of 0.08 days, in three of four turns of the centuries the additional leap day is left out.
Of course, our circular calendar also leaves an extra space for your own markings on 29th February 2024.
Our calendars are showing the whole year on one poster. For us the circle has the ideal shape for this. A year is illustrated as a closed phase.
The circle is also a matching symbol for rotational events which we experience each year. The length of the year is defined by the circular rotation of Earth around the Sun. After one year Earth returns to the same relative position in relation to the Sun. The succession of the seasons, of holidays and celebrations, also repeats itself each year in a circular flow.
