Great attraction, but unfortunately poor views

I visited the Tiger & Turtle Magic Mountain with some friends in early April 2015. It is quite a sight! And it is good fun to walk around. I'd never seen anything quite like it... read more

The Tiger & Turtle/Magic Mountain is an intriguing piece of public art that is fun to climb and admire the views over the Ruhr area. There are some mildly challenging unofficial footpaths to the hill as well. Not an attraction to occupy more than an hour, but well worth the 20 minute tram from the main station.

I'd never seen anything quite like it and it really is worth going to see and having a walk around. I was disappointed by the fact this had been put in a... More

We have visited it in the evening, enjoyed the spectacular view on it, from it and around it. Would not go up there in a stormy or cold weather, even with a wind of medium strength it already feels shaky... but definitely fun!

Saw this plugged by TripAdvisor on their Twitter feed and knew I was going to be passing by so took a detour. It's fairly easy to get to and free parking on the road opposite. Nice uphill walk to get to it then great fun to play on. I visited in the day time but could see how it could... More

As a previous review mentioned, this area can feel questionable. Visited alone during a cold winter day during the week. The path to and from is not lit and in parts hidden from view in an area which felt sketchy. Not a high traffic area in the cold and probably best visited on a warm, sunny day.

Fun, free, family-friendly, outdoor activity. It was a great way to spend some time outside on a beautiful, warm autumn day. I would recommend a visit time of 1-2 hours, but you can always make it longer if the weather is nice and take a picnic with you. The grounds are wonderful for enjoying a picnic.

Well, it's worth seeing but quite strange. The area around is a bit scary at night, we passed several prostitutes in the street. The path to the roller coaster is not lit, and is quite ominous. We are glad we went but recommend going in the daytime instead.

It looks like a walkable roller coaster, naturally without looping. It is quite Ok but somehow it lacks an attraction. For the residents, it was certainly the best thing you could do with this industrial wasteland. But, there are no toilets, no refreshments nearby. However, this is the free admission

It's a breathtaking view when you reach the top I must say. You can either climb up the hill to reach it or riding a bike. It's a must see in Duisburg!!

This is an unusual, interesting, if a little pointless attraction. Basically a weird set of steps to walk on that looks like a rollercoaster from afar. Pleased to have visited it however.
