• Some 5,000 people run, walk, cycle or just take a break on the Circle Bridge every day.
• Local residents can apply for a special bridgemaster permit that gives them the keys for opening and closing the bridge.
• The man behind the creation is none other than Olafur Eliasson, the Danish-Icelandic artist who brought waterfalls to New York City and installed a riverbed in Louisiana Art Museum.
• You can also experience his iconic Your Rainbow Panorama at the ARoS Art Museum in Aarhus.
