Hike up more than 200 steps to reach the base of Hercules Monument, a Kassel landmark depicting the ancient Greek demigod Hercules. From this 28.5 m (93.5 ft) high vantage point, you can admire views of the surrounding park and city. You can grab some food at the cafe at the foot of the stairs before walking up. Or, bring a picnic to enjoy in the Wilhelmshöhe Mountain Park. See Hercules Monument and all Kassel has to offer by arranging your trip with our Kassel trip planning app .
Hercules Monument Reviews
このヘラクレス像はヴェルヘルムスヘーエ公園の中でも一番北にある建造罰です。この像から流れ出る水が公園の中を流れて素晴らしい景観を作ってくれます。 more »This hercules statue is the northernmost construction punishment in the Werhelmshepark. The water flowing out of this statue flows through the park and creates a wonderful view.
Tolle Anlage, im Sommer mit den Wasserläufen bestimmt noch viel schöner. Von oben ist es auch ein toller Spaziergang bis zum Schloss more »Great facility, in summer with the watercourses certainly much more beautiful. From above it is also a great walk to the castle
It is being worked on so you can only go into half the monument which I feel should reflect in the ticket price or at least be noted when you buy a ticket. It's a wonderful view but going into the point isn't an added value other than to say you did. The view from the top is behind little dirty glass windows. I loved seeing the fountain and cascade plan but wish I could have been there during the live show. The view is worth stopping in for.
A bit of a steep walk all they way up but totally worth it. Lots of good views and a cafe half way up. It cost 6 euros to go up all the way but that ticket also gets you into the castle and museum. Better to buy it at the bottom instead of at the top.
