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?
