  • 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.

  • 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.
