    From a distance, hardly any of the landmarks in the Ruhr area is as impressive as the Tiger & Turtle sculpture by Ulrich Genth and Heike Mutter in the Angerpark in Duisburg. The only walk-on roller coaster in the world is perched at a height of 20 meters and can be seen from a distance on Heinrich Hildebrand Höhe in southern Duisburg.

    An impressive view of the Rhine opens up at a height of 85 meters above sea level: from the blast furnaces of the Krupp Mannesmann ironworks to the port facilities of Logport II and the Halde Rheinprussia with the landmark of the artist Otto Piene.

    As dusk falls, Tiger & Turtle - Magic Mountain offers an unusual viewing experience. The elegant shape of the sculpture shines in brilliant white light. Visible from afar, it inscribes itself in the sky as a luminous band of light.

    Tiger & Turtle Magic Mountain is located in the middle of an area characterized by heavy industry, so the approach along the Angerbach is the much nicer option than on busy roads.

    Great destination. The view from the top is great and the off-road descent is really fun 😊😎

    When the weather is nice, you have an extraordinary foresight and can see large parts of the Ruhr area. This is always a good idea for a little break on a tour.
