A big bird holding a big woman with a big bum. It's all very confusing to me. It's a good place to use as a landmark to see all the other spots in Duisburg downtown, but I wouldn't travel to Duisburg only to see this....More

Would not be worth going out of your way to see but in main pedestrian area. Locals don't understand what it's about either!
