Giant Swings

The Giant Swings are the largest freestanding and mobile swings in Europe.

In 2007 the first swing was designed for the annual summer program of the Autostadt. There are 4 of these temporary attractions made of only one twisted steel tube: three of the swings are 13 metres high, with a starting position of 10 metres.

The fourth and youngest swing, 20 meters high was first installed in 2014 at an attractive, elevated position at the harbor basin. The monumental and still filigree steel construction offers visitors a particularly exciting experience at 62 km/h above the harbour basin.
