I love how the building looks relatively simple in shape and design from the other side of the street, but when you look at the close ups you really get to admire how incredible the details and ornaments are.

This one is an exceptionally good piece of modern architecture. Traditional, minimalist, abstract, modern. Is it open for visiting?

It's owned by a cult, and used to be part of an amusement park which existed since the 1950s, when the area was more rural. It looks quite hilly, so the tower appears more dominating from some perspectives but can't be seen everywhere.
