The tallest candle in the world

Have you seen the tallest candle in the world? The new elevator test tower in Rottweil, in Germany’s Black Forrest, has been transformed into a candle to send out Christmas greetings to the world.

The guys at thyssenkrupp Elevator wanted to highlight the importance of cities in the world today. In a time of drastical growth of urban areas their wishes go out especially to all those working hard to make cities the best places to live ever.

Next year, the test tower will be ready to test innovative elevator technologies, such as MULTI, and will also offer an observation deck for the public at a height of 232 meters.
