Herkules-Statue, Kassel

4.4
Hike up more than 200 steps to reach the base of Herkules-Statue, a Kassel landmark depicting the ancient Greek demigod Hercules. From this 28.5 m (93.5 ft) high vantage point, you can admire views of the surrounding park and city. You can grab some food at the cafe at the foot of the stairs before walking up. Or, bring a picnic to enjoy in the Wilhelmshöhe Mountain Park. See Herkules-Statue and all Kassel has to offer by arranging your trip with our Kassel trip planning app .

  • The statue of Hercules is really very impressive. The construction site is still, but still worth the visit.

  • The Hercules is the landmark of Kassel and really a must for every visitor. When you consider that the good man is now 300 years old, he held up quite well! Depending on the day, it can be but hard to get a parking space directly above and during the Wasserspielsaison (from May to October) is Park on Wednesdays and Sundays and public holidays paid and almost impossible. Best bus or for the high and then very many levels only ideas the mountain by foot. The view from the top of Kassel but worth.

  • Great monument! we went there at 1625 and they didnt allow us to in!!!! But there are no clear notive of this on anywhere.
  • Beautiful high view on kassel and really nice historical scenery. Watch out with small children, some parts are easy so slip through the hedgestones
  • bus didn't stop at the bus stop. service is terrible. everything is under renovation.
  • One of the steepest walks I've ever taken without being in the mountains ... worth every step too!!!
  • definitely worth the walk and it is not as far as the maps make it seem...about 30 min
