"Kommse aus Bottrop…" – Discover the smallest city of the Ruhr Area

Variety is very important in Bottrop, because here you can experience Hollywood, high art, adventurous nature and even snow in just one day. The Tetraeder, the landmark of Bottrop, can already be seen from afar, because the landmark crowns the Beckstrasse slagheap. You come here if you want to experience one of the best views over the Ruhr Area - the steel construction that dates back to the times of the IBA Emscherpark was opened in 1995 and is accessible. It is not for nothing that the work of art is called "Haldenereignis Emscherblick" and is an absolute recommendation for photographers. If you are looking for cool photo locations, then the Bottrop Haniel Spoil Tip is also an absolute must for you. With amphitheatre, Stations of the Cross and totem installation, it offers more than just an interesting motif!

Skiing, climbing, tobogganing & movie fun

Right next to the Tetrahedron is the alpine centre Bottrop, which offers year-round skiing fun for young and old with a piste length of 640m. On the adventure mountain, you can also do summer tobogganing, high ropes climbing and indoor skydiving - more action is hardly possible. Movie fans among you will make a Hollywood detour to Movie Park Germany, Germany's largest film and amusement park, without having to fly. Those who like to get scared will love the Horror Labyrinth NRW again and the amusement park Schloss Beck provides the greatest fun for the little ones with water slides, roller coaster and petting zoo. Feeling like seeing some art? Then visit the Josef Albers Museum Quadrat Bottrop, one of 20 members of the RuhrKunstMuseen in the Ruhr Area, to learn more about the Bottrop-born artist with a passion for squares.
