Whilst we often deal with regular passenger lifts here at Elevators Ltd, it is hard to deny that there are some extraordinarily designed elevators around the world. In fact, some of these are so unique that they have become tourist attractions in their own right. Read on as we go through five of the most interesting and expertly designed elevators that can be found in places like Germany, Taiwan and even on the sea…


Found in Berlin, elevators don’t get more extravagant than the AquaDom! This elevator operators within a fully functioning aquarium that is filled with 260 thousand gallons of water and is home to over 1,500 fish!

Rising Tide

This elevator differs from the others as it located on the sea rather than on the land. In fact, the Rising Tide is an elevator with the capacity to hold up to 35 passengers and can be found on the world’s largest cruise ship. Plus, it also has a fully functioning bar inside it!

Taipei 101

Until 2010, this Taiwanese building held the title of the world’s fastest and highest elevator. Although it now ranks second place, it is still an incredible feat of mechanical engineering and can travel to the 101st floor in just 30 seconds!

Sky Tower

For those afraid of heights, the Sky Tower elevator in Auckland is best avoided. After all, it has a glass floor that allows passengers to look below as they ascend the 70-story high building. In fact, it is safe to say that this elevator is not for the faint hearted.

Autostadt Silos

Made and designed to stack cars, this huge elevator is 160 feet tall and can store up to 500 cars safely and securely. It is located in Germany next to the Volkswagen building and has a glass perimeter and a hollow interior.

Here at Elevators Ltd, our product range may not come with real fish tanks, however, we are more than confident that their high-quality mechanics will more than make up for it. After all, we prioritise safety in all of our designs in order to ensure that every client is happy with their purchase.
