Climb 60 m (197 ft) to the top of Tetraeder Bottrop 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.

Tetraeder Bottrop Reviews
Schöner Fussweg bis da oben. Aufstieg musste auch sein, trotz Tochter mit Höhenangst. Empfehlenswert Wer möchte. Mach ich wieder more »Nice walk up there. Promotion had to be also, despite daughter with fear of heights. Recommended if you want. I'm back
Het is een kwartiertje traplopen vanaf de parkeerplaats en dan heb je waarschijnlijk een mooi uitzicht over de omgeving. Onze novemberdag was wat druilerig.

Thereby it was peaceful but no spectacular view so. Nevertheless nice to here to stretch your legs and start watching.
Not to hard to climb up itself, but you have to park/alight the bus below and hike up a rather steep hill to it. The path is wide and tarmaced so you don't need hiking boots etc. Below are signs descr... more »
Interesting construction on the little hill with a view of industrial city. The hill offers u opportunity to ride down hill on roller.
Nice view on the area. Structure is interesting. No-go for the ones with vertigo !
IF you are a person who is afraid of heights, you should definitely visit this 60 m mega steel structure. Designed by the architect Professor. Dipl-Ing. Wolfgang Christ this 210 ton steel structure was built in 1995 on the coal mine that was closed. Walking towards the tetraeder thorough the gravel road you will get the unforgettable impressions of a looking at the site of a rocket launching station with this huge structure standing still. There is no wonder that some of the locals reported the extraterrestrial activities near this place. The moment you climb near 400 steps you will reach the summit. Don't be afraid to Stand on the tilted and hanging platform. Take a deep breath and enjoy the fantastic view of the beautiful Ruhr area surrounded by huge greenery and industries. Plan to visit this place during sunset or sunrise and get lost in looking at the horizon and swirling thoughts in your mind. I had a amazing experience visiting this wonderful land.
A beautiful metal structure that you can climb for a breathtaking view.
A very cool landmark with a pretty nice staircase and an awesome view!
