Tetraeder, Bottrop

#1 of 7 in Things to do in Bottrop
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • If you go near the city it is interesting to see the mathematical elements that form it. From the car park you will have to walk 15' and gives equal to go left right by the two parties to the Summit where is the tetraedrer.

  • A brisk walk done to then eventually to the approximately 200 steps. At 30 degrees, this was sweating and puffing. The beautiful view from above does much good. There was only around the tetrahedron a lot of glass shards and redelijl waste. For the rest a nice spot to make sure a visit!!

  • Very curious from where you can enjoy the view. To avoid if you are afraid of heights because the structure is made with grid plates. A lot of steps to climb but it's certainly worth it.
