Only Happy When It Rains: Dresden’s Funnel Wall

I have to say, listening to the rain fall is one of my absolute favorite thing to do. There’s just something so calming and serene about the sound of the little droplets of water as they crash against a hard surface. That’s why I was particularly enchanted when I spotted the Kunsthofpassage Funnel Wall, located in Dresden Germany. The instruments attached to the vivaciously colored building are part of its draining system, turning the building into a unique orchestra when the weather becomes wet. A gloomy day instantly brightened by the music of brass instruments reacting to nature’s sounds is just so unbelievably charming.


According to Atlas Obscura: “The Funnel Wall is one of the strangest and most enjoyable attractions in Dresden’s student district in the new town.” Seemingly inspired by by the infamous Rube Goldberg Machine, the building was designed by residents Christoph Roßner, Annette Paul, and Andre Tempel. If you are ever in Dresden, you have got to check this place out!
