Wonderland Sculpture, Calgary

4.3
Get inside the mind of Wonderland Sculpture, a mesh artwork created by Spanish artist Jaume Plensa in 2013. This contemporary public piece stands at 12 m (39 ft) and represents a head that can be walked through. Step inside and snap some unusual pictures of your surroundings, including the towering glass skyscraper rising above. Walk around to the north plaza (on the other side of the high-rise) to see the second sculpture by Plensa here.

  • Cool place in Calgary to take awesome pictures! a must if you are walking or biking through downtown
  • Great sculpture ...Amazing for pictures!
  • Very iconic feature in Calgary, can't miss it!
  • Pretty and dull, much like the rest of Calgary, and it's not like there's much else around to do anyway, so you might as well snap some pictures and carry on.
  • lovely.

Where to stay in Calgary

South of the river is where most of the action happens in Calgary, and that's where you'll find the best selection of places to stay. Downtown, the central neighborhood located on the river's southern bank offers the widest range of choices, with access to several of the city's major metro stations a big plus. For arts, nightlife, and quality of living, go to The Beltine, known for its cafes, restaurants, arts, and entertainment. If you're just visiting the city briefly but want access to onward transport links, choose accommodations located close to the city's international airport.
