Kloster Eberbach - Dormitory

This is the former dormitory at Kloster Eberbach. There is one fascinating fact about it: if you look at the columns in the back, they appear shorter than the ones in the front which is quite natural because of the perspective, right? But even if you measure them it turns out that they are really shorter since the floor lies a bit higher there.

If you're curious to see a "magic door" hidden in this room, check out my other blog.

hahaha I thought that was an illusion - nice angle - the place looks deserted and for some reason, I think it would be spooky at night.

Schöne Symetrie und irreales Sonnenlicht, das von der Seite kommt... Ein Ort für die ruhige Besinnung... ein Ort der Stille, aber nicht der Einsamkeit. Ein Ort, wo Jahrhunderte lang tausende von Mönche den Kopf zum anbeten gebeugt haben, und wo die schönen gregorianischen Gesänge im Mittelalter geklungen und widerhallt haben?
