Cape Town – Think of that beautiful, soft sound of rain. Now imagine a building that takes that sound, and turns it into actual music.

Today’s Photo of the Day by Instagram user jecka93, is of a building in Germany called the Neustadt Kunstofpassage, and the architect built it with the intention of it being able to play music.

How it works?

It has been designed in such a way that when rain falls into the funnels, the water somehow works with the funnel to creating charming sounds.

There are numerous videos on Youtube that feature this building, but we are yet to find a video that gives you the opportunity to actually hear this music.

We guess the best thing we can do for now is actually head to Dresden, Germany ourselves, to see if this is really as good as it sounds (see what we did there?)
