GET THE CITY UP CLOSE FROM THE TOP OF A ROOF – AS THE ULTIMATE VOYEUR

From the roof you have a fantastic view of the city. 8 observation posts focus your eyes on the details of the chaotic urban panorama before you, and you look at the city as if through a magnifying glass. The telescope guides your eyes towards isolated characters on the street, behind a window, in a yard, far away. Suddenly you make eye contact, and you are no longer a voyeur at a safe distance.

Secret and intimate relationships occur between you and the person you are observing, at distances of several kilometers. The sounds, the mysterious atmosphere and the enigmatic characters are all elements in your own unique urban storytelling.

There is access to the roof every 30 min. But you can stay longer if you like.
