While there are quite a few twisted style chimney stacks, none look this good. This is very tall as well, I guess to make it look better or maybe to complete the twist.

If Santa felt like a more balmy climate after spending all year in the North Pole, he could visit the beautiful chimneys at Palau Guell in Barcelona. These brightly coloured chimneys by Gaudi would certainly brighten his night.

Rudolf Steiner is a Philosopher, social reformer, architect and esotericist. He is also the maker of a chimney that is more interesting (and taller) than the house! I would imagine this is a chimney cleaners nightmare!
