Crouching Tiger & Turtle – The Roller Coaster Walkway

From a distance this steel structure resembles a roller coaster but it’s actually a public art sculpture called Crouching Tiger & Turtle. Designed by sculptors Ulrich Genth and Heike Mutter, the interactive landscape piece is located in Duisberg, Germany. Visitors are encouraged to follow the twists and turns of the winding walkway and enjoy the surrounding Ruhr landscape from a different perspective. Although from a distance it looks as if the entire sculpture is accessible to pedestrians the loops are decorative and cannot be walked upon.
