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

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.

Nice place to go for a slight hiking. Just go on the top, feel the wind and entertain yourself with the winds and views. From there, look at the view of entire Ruhrgebiet. There are 3 platforms at different elevations for making break or sight...More

The Tetraeder is a great place to look at the Ruhrgebiet from an interesting sight. The stairs are a bit demanding for people afraid of heights, but the view is definitely worth it.

We went there to abseil us from there. Very nice view, you can see the cities and the industry. If you go there by night, the lights are stunning. You are not allowed to drive there, but the hill is not very steep nor high,...More
