Art Nouveau Elevator

The Bad Schandau Elevator is a passenger truss-tower elevator built in 1904 in Bad Schandau, a spa town in Saxony, Germany. The elevator's height is 52.6 meters (173 ft) in an art nouveau-style steel frame tower with a diameter of 5.2 meters (17 ft) at the ground and 2.5 meters (8.2 ft) at the door. On the way up it overcomes a height difference of 47.76 meters (156.7 ft). It functions as a tower of observation. It is still the fastest and most convenient to connect Bad Schandau to its Ostrau suburb, just as it was more than a century ago. Hikers also use the elevator to access trails, and the small platform at the top station offers picturesque views of the surrounding Elbe valley.
