The Toppels’ roadside cafe is an ‘upside down‘ coffee shop in the German town of Wertheim. The baristas appear to be working on the ceiling while the coffee and beer are served in inverted mugs. The cafe is situated next to an upside down house that includes an inverted bathroom and bedroom and is open to the public. Inside the decor is even more confusing. A new cafe in Germany has heads spinning with its wacky upside-down design. The Toppels house is from afar a unique eye-catcher. But only from the inside, it becomes a crazy experience. Because everything is upside down. it’s completely upside down from the inside too, including the bedrooms, living room, kitchen and washrooms! The unique design provides ample opportunities for optical illusions to be captured on camera.
- Outside, the house seems to be sitting on its roof with the garage at the top
- Inside, the furniture is all hanging from the ceiling, so it looks topsy turvy
In the bathroom, the sink, toilet and bath are all topsy turvy, prompting numerous photo opportunities where visitors pose with their heads in the loo.
In the kitchen, a meal is laid out on the table, hanging from the roof, and in a child’s bedroom, a car racing kit is suspended above the ground.
The layout means that visitors can pose in the rooms for photos with their feet on the ground, but it appears in pictures like they are actually standing on the ceiling.
Strangely, Toppels is not the first upside-down house in Germany. The ‘Crazy House’ in the village of Affoldern has been disorientating visitors since 2014. Upside-down houses have also popped up – or would that be popped down? – in Taiwan, Russia, China and Austria. However, Malaysia is still the home of upside-down houses with at least five upside-down attractions for travellers to check out all over the country.
