Tetraeder, Bottrop

#1 of 6 in Things to do in Bottrop
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.

  • After 800 metres walking and 387 steps out onto a kind of lunar landscape where a 30 meter wide, 60 metres high, triangular and steel construction. After the stairs on the impressive Tetrahedron itself (3 floors) a beautiful view across the Ruhr area. Nothing for people with Vertigo as the stairs and floors of steel grids are! Then again hike for 1.1 km via road leads down to the car (free parking) to chug. On the mountain itself are no parking or other facilities. Absolutely worth a visit.

  • 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.
  • Wonderful Place
  • Great panorama view especially when the sky is clear.
