Camera Obscura – Or upside down black box!


This Camera Obscura is located inside a black box with big white letters stands inconspicuously on the Altoner balcony in the beautiful harbour scenery. If the sun is shining – don’t be scared, just go in and close the door behind you.

You have to wait few minutes till your eyes acclimatise to the dark. You’ll see the harbour upside down moving projected picture on a white wall.

The current projected picture can also be seen in the foyer of the Altonaer Museum. You could also try to take a picture (without flash) of the projection and yourself.

It’s a pretty nice experience! And it’s for free!
