• Geometric Bottrop
When I devoted fellow Germans in their travel plans Westphalia, they were very surprised to hear the names of cities such as Krefeld, Neuss, Bottrop. I asked what I had left in these strange places for them and what's there to see. In fact, the Germans rarely travel around the country, most were not even in the most standard and major tourist cities. There are even those who are on the map can show where the Berlin and a lot of those who are not able to mention the names of the 16 federal states of Germany ...
Usually, I always find something interesting and unusual in the German cities, let this be just one bar or beautiful door stuchalka. Bottrop, for example, turned out to be a surprisingly geometric. On one of the inner city on the hills, I came across a huge steel regular tetrahedron, and in one park found a curious free hotel rooms, which are located in the cylindrical passages sewer shaft. Just awesome! Look?
Bottrop (German Bottrop.) - an industrial city in the Ruhr region of Germany with 116 thousand inhabitants.
Before the tetrahedron can be reached by bus or on weekends, or on foot from the stop Ostring. I certainly walked (once on the Hollywood Hills in Los Angeles raised foot).
When you find yourself at the foot of the hill in front of you is waiting 600 steps up.
In comparison to climb to the observation deck of St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican is necessary to overcome 500 steps, the Cologne Cathedral - about 530 degrees.
The steel skeleton of a tetrahedron is used as a viewing platform.
is geometrically simplest polyhedron whose faces are four triangles. one edge length of 60 meters.
It was built by the architect Wolfgang Christ (German. Wolfgang Christ) 20 years ago in 1994.
Free admission. We rise up.
The higher the rise, the windier becomes.
Top views of the industrial Ruhr area.
Here you can see the city of Essen.
You can see Oberhausen and Europe's largest gasometer.
where the home stadium of football team Schalke (German. FC Schalke 04, Veltins-Arena) in Gelsenkirchen.
An impressive area and object.
Yet the city has a wonderful park - Bernepark.
Reach it very easy from the main railway station, 3 minutes by bus to Ebel.
The unusual is that it has hotel rooms fit in separate sewer segments.
The hotel is a free, reservation of rooms is carried out online. Twice already I wanted to book to stay one night, but, unfortunately, did not work. That summer was already closed, all the seats were occupied.
inside each cylinder is the bed, there is electricity and a window at the top.
The heating is not so funny, and the hotel is closed outside the summer season.
sanitary facilities are located nearby in the fishing line.
That he, geometric Bottrop.
