Nordsternturm Tower

The Nordsternturm Tower is a notable landmark in Gelsenkirchen, Germany, located within the Nordsternpark. The Nordsternturm Tower features an observation deck that provides panoramic views of Gelsenkirchen and the surrounding Ruhr Valley.

This vantage point allows visitors to appreciate the extensive green spaces and the industrial heritage of the area. Originally part of the Nordstern Coal Mine, the tower has been repurposed as a symbol of the region’s transformation from an industrial center to a cultural and recreational hub. The tower is home to various art installations, including the prominent “Hercules” statue by artist Markus Lüpertz. This statue stands atop the tower and has become an iconic symbol of Gelsenkirchen.
