As part of the cultural capital RUHR.2010, the artist Nils-Udo created Burgenland, which consists of 15 green mounds between one, two and three meters high. Walkers can experience the ensemble along an axis between Herten Castle and the Hoheward Landscape Park. The axis connects the baroque palace with the industrial landscape in the south of the city.
The change in landscape due to industrialization can be seen on the green hills, since human intervention has also changed the previous natural landscape. Nils-Udo installed typical Corten steel mine buildings on eight of fifteen hills. The structures continue to decrease in the direction of the Emscherbruch, so that more and more empty hills can be seen towards the former mining site. The models of the mines, which have now become historic, represent the 130-year mining tradition of Hertens.

Herten Castle is a moated castle on the western edge of downtown Herten in the Recklinghausen district. It is located in the middle of an old English landscape garden and was first mentioned in documents in 1376. The main building of the palace complex has been a listed building since 1962.
The current buildings were built in the 16th and 17th centuries by the Coesfeld master builder Henric de Suer and his son Johann for the von Stecke and von Nesselrode families. After the main building was given up as a residence after the First World War, it fell into disrepair and threatened to collapse due to mine damage. Only a thorough renovation by the Regional Association of Westphalia-Lippe from 1974 to 1989 saved the late Gothic complex from complete ruin.

Schloss Gastronomie Herten also offers everything that is needed for the perfect execution and professional implementation of an event.

Beautiful park centrally located in Herten. With an old moated castle. A variety of ways, so you can always discover new things. Very suitable for taking photos, whether the castle, the chapel, the two ponds or the forest areas. Worthwhile for pedestrians and cyclists. Cars are not allowed in the park. Parking is available but sufficient.
