  a clever design for a lock in Cochem castle
by globetrott

Most of the locks in the castle of Cochem have a clever design and in order to see the details, it will be the best to enlarge my picture.
At first you get the feeling, that it is just a nice design, but in fact you may see a bended decoration around the place, where you have to put in the key.
This decoration was made that way in order to "catch" the key even when you cannot find the hole , so you just hold the key to the big lock and move it left or right, until you feel that decoration and then you just have to move the key down, and it will be led directely into the key-hole...
A clever way to find the right place on a corridor with bad light or even when you are drunk :-)
