When we visited in August, this was undergoing repairs and so some parts of this site were closed. I am sure it must be worthwhile when in operation. You can climb up the monument for a fee and climb down the side of the water...More

A great location on top of the hill, overlooking the extensive water features flowing down all the way, the city of Kassel in the distance. This massive 18th century Herkules structure is already 12 years being restored and still not finished. The impressive water features...More

No stroller way down by the water, but do check when the water will be on. I think it is Wednesday and Saturday. Better still look at the top and then catch the free bus to the bottom.
