At Hogwarts, the staircases routinely change direction, the doors sometimes disappear, change positions or need to be tickled just right to open. Some doors refuse to open while other are just walls pretending to be doors. Ghosts float around freely while the people in portrays run through frames as to socialize with each other.

Historical secrets, secret pasts, school yard secrets, secret passages ways, secret chambers, secret identities and secret objects have all found a home within Hogwarts walls.
