    The Cross Club

    Pay wave

    On your right is a strange metal sculpture. Turn right into the parking lot area and stop for a while. This is the Cross Club, where our walk ends.

    I have chosen to end our walk here, because whenever I visit this place, I am amazed by all those crazy machines: spinning, blinking, rattling, randomly turning left and right. Look closely and you will notice the incredible amount of gear wheels, rods, pistons, isolators and other mechanical parts that have been combined into one total work of art.

    I think this is a good conclusion of the tour and its overall theme, which is the industrial past, and what people today make of it.

    The Cross Club is open every day from 2pm to 2am, so if you'd like to stop for a bite to eat or something to drink, this is a great place to do it. You could also follow our route back and explore the side streets. If you'd like to go somewhere else, there is a tram stop and a metro station about 100 meters further down the street. To get back to our start point, simply return to the busy intersection behind you. Then turn right, and follow the road back to the river.

    I hope that you have enjoyed this walk together. I have definitely enjoyed creating it! Thank you, and good bye.
