Not to hard to climb up itself, but you have to park/alight the bus below and hike up a rather steep hill to it. The path is wide and tarmaced so you don't need hiking boots etc. Below are signs describing the sights across the...More

When I told friends that I visited the Tetraeder in Bottrop, they all said that it is nothing special and not worth visiting. I beg to differ! I was deeply impressed by the sheer size of the structure. For many years I saw the four-sided...More

This is great, but the open steel mesh floor on the first platform genuinely freaked me out. Just push on through and keep walking and the upper platforms have solid floors and stunning views. This is the best Halde in Ruhrgebiet. If you're only doing...More

This is how an alien spaceship might look like. The sign at the entrance says that the climb is a contemplative experience, because at each platform you have to decide: shall I turn back or continue. A unique experience it certainly is, even without aliens.

Nice place to go for a slight hiking. Just go on the top, feel the wind and entertain yourself with the winds and views. From there, look at the view of entire Ruhrgebiet. There are 3 platforms at different elevations for making break or sight...More
