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.

Kassel-Wilhelmshöhe駅からずっと登り坂を上がっていきます。途中までは森林の中を歩きますが最後は石畳の階段をひたすら登ります。 約1時間半ほどかかりますが、頂上から見下ろすカッセル市街の景色は一見の価値があります。From Kassel-Wilhelmshöhe station goes up much uphill. Walks in the forest until the middle is climbing is the paved road. Kassel city will take about an hour and a half, top-down views are worth a look.show original
Wonderful view from the top of pyramide! Building itself is nothing special and was under reconstruction when I visited it.
Nice spot with a wonderful view. Below the Herkules there is an awesome park called Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe
Absolutely amazing monument and museum. I recommend going all the up to the top and then watching the water cascade all the way to the palace. Truly a magnificent place.
It is amazing place... Beautiful water park... Awesome museum
Great hiking and great view of Kassel, definitely a must see in Kassel
