Located on the Schovenhorst Country Estate, the building sets off an exciting journey for its guests right at the base of the tower, indicated by a brightly painted stairway. A ramp curves out of the tower and swoops around, giving a clear view of the surrounding environment before swinging back to the center columns. Visitors will find themselves at the first platform, a wood paneled room open at the end, where small holes in the panel reveal boxes filled with birds nests.
