To get to this place from Dortmund Hauptbanhof (central station), you need to get on the U41 subway line in direction of Hörde, hop off at Hörde Banhof station and get on the 442 bus in direction of Syburg, hopping off in the last stop, Syburg. From there it is just a quick walk to the park, the ruins and the monument. Google Maps somehow does not know of this route, that takes about 40min. The whole place is very beautiful and the view is amazing, even in a cloudy day. There are small hiking trails into the woods, and it is difficult to get lost there. Give it a try!

The original monument before it was renovated in 1935 was amazing, but it was rebuild in minimalist style. The sheer size, the statues and the view are still impressive, and it's a nice walk to the top.

ran to the castle from the nearby train station, amazing views from top. Should carry water since could not find water fountains. The castle/ruin is also cool.
