Hi Sarah

Your vist is much appreciated - Thank you

Certainly a couple of 6's an 8, a zero and an infinity sign! I don't know if the architect had that in mind!
It sits on top of a mountain overlooking Duisburg www.ipernity.com/doc/2247998/47187628

Hi Tiabunna

Thank you for visiting

I am so pleased that you like it, and thought about it.
In fact there are only two fences.. Outside and inside.. When you walk on to it you can hold one in your left hand and one in your right, and keep walking!

Best Wishes, HFF, and a good weekend.

Hi Nick

Thank you so much for your visit here

Glad you have enjoyed it.

It would be interesting to speculate on some of the geometry, but spoiled by the inabilty to walk the upside down bit. (Gated off for obvious reasons!)

Best Wishes, HFF, and a good weekend.

Glad you have enjoyed it. However, as I said to Tiabunna above, there are only two fences, inside and outside... Admittedly they are long curly fences...

It is actually quite innocent. The upside down bit is gated off so you can't go there.. for obvious reasons!

Hi Steve

Your visit is much appreciated - Thank you

I am so pleased that you like it.

As i have said to a couple of people above, there is only one walkway, with a fence on each side.. And the upside down bit is fenced off for obvious reasons!

Perhaps if they had added a twist (like a Möbius strip) into the upside down bit that nobody could get to, that would really make you think!

Best Wishes, HFF, and a good weekend.

Hi Peter, a curvaceous set of fences here indeed. I must admit to being slightly perplexed as to what it really is. Logic says its a roller-coaster but if so, what and why are those two people upright on the top of here. Star attributed. ☼

HFF, Have a great weekend, Herb

Peter_Private_Box club has replied to Herb Riddle club
Hi Herb

Your visit, star, and thoughtful comment is much appreciated - Thank you

This was built for fun, as a pedestrian walkway, although it looks like it might be a roller coaster. For obvious reasons you can't walk the upside down bit, but you can everywhere else. Just as Erhard guessed in this picture www.ipernity.com/doc/2247998/47187628

Best Wishes, HFF, and a good weekend.

It is there for people to walk on (free of charge), and enjoy the view of Duisburg. Certainly I walked on it too. The upside down bit is gated off for obvious reasons.
You can walk under it too...!!

Glad you have enjoyed it. I have noticed that you have a couple of very nice night shots of it too. Unfortunately this was the middle of summer, and nightfall was just too late to visit, even though it was fairly close to the hotel.

Hi Steve

Thank you so much!

This was the first morning in Germany, and a nice hot sunny day (just like most of the others..)
It sits on top of a hill overlooking Duisburg and is for amusement only. You can walk everywhere, except the upside down bit (for obvious reasons!).
A good start to the holiday!
