What to expect

Landgrave Karl von Hessen-Kassel had the octagon ("Giant Castle") with the figure of Hercules built between 1700 and 1717 by the Italian architect Giovanni Francesco Guerniero as the crowning glory of the 1.5-kilometer-long cascade complex.

A steep pyramid rises above the octagonal base, crowned by an 8.20 m high statue of Hercules. The work of the Augsburg goldsmith Johann Jakob Anthoni is a replica of the ancient Hercules Farnese.

On this tour, your guide will tell you everything you need to know about the city's landmark and enjoy the view of the city together with you.
