Go into a very dark room on a bright day. Make a small hole in a window, cover it and look at the opposite wall. What do you see? Magic! There will be in full color and movement the world outside the window — upside down! This magic is explained by a simple law of the physical world. Light travels in a straight line and when some of the rays reflected from a bright subject pass through a small hole in thin material they do not scatter but cross and reform as an upside down image on a flat surface held parallel to the hole. This law of optics was known in ancient times.

Their Camera Obscura exists since 2012, and it’s a selfmade project from their “Schloss und Gartenverwaltung”.
