“Tiger & Turtle – Magic Mountain is the name of a huge sculpture by Heike Mutter and Ulrich Genth being built in the south of Duisburg as a stunning new landmark for the Ruhr region. Resembling the shape of a rollercoaster, the sculpture will be located on Heinrich-Hildebrand-Höhe in the Angerpark, which opened in 2008.

Heike Mutter and Ulrich Genth’s work will be a remarkable symbol of a new, unique metropolis. With its curved design, the sculpture crowns the highest point of the spoil tip, mimicking its spiralling pathways. Viewed from afar, the metallic shimmering shape of the rollercoaster on the “Magic Mountain” appears to promise a thrilling high-speed experience. Closer up, visitors can storm the sculpture on foot, following the rollercoaster’s twists and turns, and admiring the surrounding landscape from different perspectives. Then, at a height of 85 metres above sea level, the sculpture will offer an enthralling panorama of the Rhine. …” source
