Paternoster lift

Steffi and I went to the Duisburg city hall. Apparently time has stood still there, as they have a Paternoster lift still in use in the building! Paternoster lifts consist of a series of open compartments that move without stopping. To get on and off, you need to jump on very quickly to avoid getting squished! I suspect this would not pass health and safety regulations in most countries.
