Josef Stöger’s Bavarian Forest National Park Treetop Walk

Josef Stöger’s winding timber walkway isn’t just in the shape of an egg–it’s also the longest treetop walk in the world! Located in Germany’s Bavarian Forest National Park, this treetop walk wraps around three enormous fir trees. At the top, diligent visitors are treated to stunning views of the Bavarian mountains. See more pictures!

Los Carpinteros’ Güiro Bar

All Easter Eggs contain treats, with some tastier than others. The artistic duo Los Carptineros installed a bar inside Güiro, a gridded ovoid structure built for the 2012 Art Basel at Miami Beach. Inspired by the eponymous Cuban percussion instrument made from dried tropical fruit, Güiro is illuminated from the inside to create an ethereal glowing effect. See more pictures!

Foster + Partners’ Free University Library

Designed as one of Berlin’s most symbolically important institutions, this four-level ovoid library designed by Foster + Partners looks like a beautifully checkered egg shell embedded into the landscape. Nicknamed the Berlin Brain, the curved steel and glass building houses over 700,000 books. The staggered glass openings allow for natural ventilation and shading to help manage temperature and daylight. See more pictures!
