5 weird and wonderful places to visit in Munich, Germany


Umschreibung - Stairway to Nowhere - 29 Ganghoferstraße, Munich, Germany

“Umschreibung” means “euphemism” in German, but a website for this sculpture says it translates to “movement without destination.” This is the meaning behind this stairway to nowhere by Danish artist Olafur Eliasson. It was created in 2004 in a courtyard of the KPMG Building and is 30 feet tall. At the bottom there is an opening so visitors can climb the stairs themselves.
