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.
