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.

I went to the Tetraeder last Sunday and it is now definitely one of my favorite sights in that area. From up there you have a wonderful view over the entire Ruhrarea. However, the way to the top can b... 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. ... more »
Great views! Not scary at all... שווה לעצור ולראות.
Scary when windy. Good place to fight fear of heights.
Great Panorama from the top and often used as photo spot for more or less awesome pictures.
