About 13km north of Essen, post-industrial Bottrop is worth a quick stop for its pair of art attractions. Overlooking the city is the Tetraeder, a walkable steel sculpture atop a mine dump, while in town there's a museum dedicated to local son Josef Albers, the Bauhaus artist famous for his explorations of colour and spatial relationships, squares in particular.
