Good for a short visit.

You can walk on this. Good view. Visit at the sunset time so that you will enjoy the view. You can reach this place by tram and you have to walk up the hill. No entry feess

Walking the tarmac path round the bottom of the hill, which takes maybe 45 minutes, you can hear no sounds apart from birds singing. It's like being on the edge of a wood in the country. As one climbs the upward path the industrial economy of the area makes itself heard and seen. The structure is easily explored, even by... More

While the name of the place is unique, I cannot make the connection to why the name was chosen. Built on a former industrial land that was heavily polluted, the contaminated soil and debris are all piled, wrapped with a big plastic sheeting and covered with soil to make this artificial mountain. The structure is artsy, but has no real... More

I had seen many photos of this on the internet, that made me want to go there. We had to climb a mountain to go there. Extreme sports!!! When we climbed to the top, we saw that there was a road we could follow. OMG!!! Well it is really great experience and view, especially if you go on sunset. *Not... More

Tiger and turtle is nice place for quick visit. Views to the industrial area give good understanding about the ruhr-area.

Tiger and Tutle is within easy reach of Düsseldorf or Duisburg. If you have the chance and are somewhere near spend an hour climbing the little hill. On top of the hill you can walk the sculpture. No worries: It is impossible to fall of the stairs when you are upside down. Children will like it and I found it... More

This monument near Düsseldorf and Duisburg is a great spot for photographers, as it is an walkable piece of art in a form of a rollercoaster! As it is on a mountain surrounded by old steal industry, you can watch and make pictures of the red/golden glowing ash from steelmaking, at night.......

There was no light on the small mountain. Be careful if you go there at night. But the tiger & turtle was so beautiful at night!

With a nice view, an exelent night ilumination, it is a must see spot in Duisburg. It is unlike every other atraction somehow connecting you to the region's culture and history. 10 minutes from the city center by car and easy to find and park.

I followed the Google maps instruction and took the train from Steinsche Gasse to Sittardberg. And, I walked from the station to this spectacular place. It was a long walking distance that about 3km away and it took me 40 minutes to reach there. It is located in a rural area and you have to walk your way up from... More
