Tiger and Turtle – Magic Mountain

Tiger and Turtle – Magic Mountain is an art installation and landmark in Angerpark, Duisburg, Germany, built in 2011.[1][2] It is 21 meters tall, made out of tin, zinc and steel and cost two million Euros to build.[3] It was designed by Ulrich Genth and Heike Mutter. It resembles a roller coaster but is completely walkable, except for the loop. In 2013, Tiger and Turtle – Magic Mountain was ranked as #6 on The Huffington Post's list of Most Extreme Staircases.[4]
