This is fun because of the elevator down to the bottom. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.

Well worth the small fee to take the elevator down for closer look but still some stairs. Walk from bus only 10 minutes

Very nice place Takes about 30 minutes to take a look and admire... so worth the ride even if you’re in a rush ;) Note that you can get there with the combination bus ticket (valid for two days)
