Tetraeder, Bottrop

(4.7/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Climb 60 m (197 ft) to the top of Tetraeder for views of the Emscher Region and greater Ruhr Area. Standing atop the old Halde Beckstraße mine dump, the steel tetrahedron appears to hover above the ground, thanks to its innovative, weight-bearing structure. It can be seen for miles around and is a well-known landmark to Bottrop residents. Stop to rest on any of several platforms along the stairs before continuing to the top, which is lit at night in the green and yellow creations of Düsseldorf artist Jürgen LIT Fischer. A visit to Tetraeder represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Bottrop trip itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

  • A wonderful landmark in the Ruhr area. Great views rewarded for a strenuous climb. Always again good to see home from above.

  • Brilliant views over the Ruhr area with industrial, Schalke arena and many green spots. A hill next to the ski Hall directly.

  • Believe or not, it can be as green and beautiful in the Ruhr area, if one has not looked down from the tetrahedron. Nice walk with surprising views.

  • Great Panorama from the top and often used as photo spot for more or less awesome pictures.
  • Super Ausflugsziel.
  • Great panorama view especially when the sky is clear.
  • Cool place. If you happen to be around Bottrop go visit, but do not travel only for this one.
  • An impressive experience and great courage that I passed. I was at the top. 😎
