Tetraeder, Bottrop
(4.6/5 based on 130 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.

  • When you finally biven are first relax, laugh but is definitely worth it. You can look around, you look a lot about Bottrop Essen inside and also a gedeekte from Gelsenkirchen. Very very cool also to pictures of themselves with a very nice background or just to the surroundings and there to take pictures of. Very zienswaardig and is located in the neighborhood of the indoor ski slope. Really delicious

  • The tetrahedron is the dump over the last Colliery in the Ruhr area. The metal construction as such is already worth a visit. The view from the top is magnificent.

  • A little physical activity is needed to get the reward of particular views. A 360 ° panorama of the Ruhr area is guaranteed and it is amazed by the size of the tetrahedron standing right in front of him. For people with disabilities is also the opportunity to reach this plateau. Much pleasure.

  • 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. 😎
