Tiger & Turtle - Magic Mountain
From the cover page of numerous magazines to the start screen on Windows computers, ‘Tiger & Turtle – Magic Mountain’ is one of the most photographed and published subjects of recent times.
Since opening in November 2011, the walkable sculpture has made headlines all over the world. The landmark can be seen from miles around and was built on the site of a former slag heap south of Duisburg. Anyone who clambers up the steps as far as the loop is rewarded with a magnificent view. When the weather is fine, it is possible to see from Duisburg city centre along the Rhine as far as Düsseldorf. It is sometimes even possible to make out the airport control tower. Visible all around the sculpture are the bustling activities of the various steelworks and Logport’s huge storage areas, but also dense forests that have been left untouched.
Illuminated twists and turns
The landmark created by artists Heike Mutter and Ulrich Genth looks especially impressive when night falls. This is when 880 LEDs trace the twists and turns of the steel sculpture. Tiger & Turtle – Magic Mountain is open day and night and entry is free.
