    Since 1717, the symbol of Kassel is enthroned on the summit of Karlsberg at 530 m above the city. The building is the culmination of the 1.5 kilometer cascade complex.
    On an octagon with a viewing platform rises a steep pyramid crowned by the monumental statue of Hercules. The entire structure reaches a height of 71 meters and from the observation deck you have a magnificent view over the entire Baroque park, the city and the low mountain range.

    A worthwhile trip worth noting is the Bergpark World Heritage Site.
