Here you get stunning views over the north part of the Ruhrgebiet on an architectural highlight in that region. You must not have health problems to climb all the stairs which lead you into heaven.

The reviews already given sum up this venue well. It was windy and drizzling when we got to the structure and I wish I brought a windbreaker or light jacket with me, but it was still do-able. A good up-hill walk workout. We walked /carried...More

Firstly make sure you find the car park located due west, This gives you access to the staircase which is to the south (good for going down) or the zigzag path on the west side. We parked to the North which was fine but meant...More

On a clear day you overlook the cities of Bottrop, Oberhausen, Essen and Gelaenkirchen. You can even see as far as the Skyline of Dusseldorf. The view gives a good impression how green the Ruhr area has become. There are some coal mine monuments (very...More

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 describing the sights across the...More

When I told friends that I visited the Tetraeder in Bottrop, they all said that it is nothing special and not worth visiting. I beg to differ! I was deeply impressed by the sheer size of the structure. For many years I saw the four-sided...More

This is certainly something thats unique and unusual. Especially in the Bottrop area of Germany, which isn't really a tourist hotspot. So its certainly a hidden gem to the more western visitors. But i do highly recommend, as it is so picturesque and unique. It...More

This is great, but the open steel mesh floor on the first platform genuinely freaked me out. Just push on through and keep walking and the upper platforms have solid floors and stunning views. This is the best Halde in Ruhrgebiet. If you're only doing...More

I went to the Tetraeder last Sunday and it is now definitely one of my favorite sights in that area. From up there you have a wonderful view over the entire Ruhrarea. However, the way to the top can be a bit scary if you...More

This is how an alien spaceship might look like. The sign at the entrance says that the climb is a contemplative experience, because at each platform you have to decide: shall I turn back or continue. A unique experience it certainly is, even without aliens.
