Today we visit the "Hercules"
Here is a short information:
Hercules is a copper statue depicting the ancient Greek demigod Heracles. The statue is located at the top of a Pyramid, which stands on top of the Octagon. Today "Hercules" refers not only to the statue, but the whole monument, including the Octagon and Pyramid. The monument is the highest point in the Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe. On 23 June 2013 the Mountainpark and the Hercules were proclaimed as world heritage site during the UNESCO meeting in Phnom Penh.
We start our day behind the Hercules
We decided to climb up on the octagon and the pyramid!
This is the view from the highest window!
The Hercules is made of very soft stone so it often has to be redeveloped.
Here many goldfish lives...
Here ist the Hercules and the cascade in its full glory
We are convinced! Kassel is a beautiful city...
