An Amazing Elevator That Moves Sideways

Elevator Sideways

In an uplifting episode of “Amazing Places”, host Tom Scott traveled to Germany in order to feast his eyes upon the incredible Multi Elevator by Thyssenkrupp that moves sideways from point A to point B.

I’ve filmed a paternoster lift; I’ve filmed the strange Genoa elevator that sort-of goes sideways. So when I got an email from Thyssenkrupp, an elevator company, saying “come and see our Multi elevator that actually goes sideways”, I wasn’t going to turn it down.
