    The dump Hoheward is a mining dump in the Ruhr area. It originated from the foundations of the Recklinghausen II colliery, the Ewald colliery and the General Blumenthal / Haard colliery. Located between the cities of Herten and Recklinghausen, it forms together with the Halpen Hoppenbruch the largest heap landscape of the Ruhrgebiet. The highest point of the heap is with a height of 152.5 m above sea level. NN reached.

    Located in the Hertener south. Some stamina is required, but even laymen can do it. Different ways lead up to the very top. There you can enjoy the beautiful view.

    Absolutely the best view far and wide. If you live in the Ruhrpott or are visiting and want to "see something", you have to go here.

    The one arch that has been propped up has been a shame for the Ruhrpott for years (2020). They argue who has to pay, but you should fix something that should also be a sign for German skills!
    This is also a majestic stone mountain (Halde) where you will feel your legs well.

    Some nice single trails lead down. These are quite overgrown in late summer, so gloves and long sleeves are recommended.

    A short trip to the MTB route is always worthwhile - pure fun factor.

    Unlimited view from the dump Hoheward in all directions. You can see u.a. the Ewald colliery, the Gelsenkirchen football stadium and the Scholven power station.

    After a strenuous drive to the summit, you will be rewarded with a great view. The descent is also a great experience, but due to the high speed it is over very quickly.

    Nice, steep approach over the Drachenbrücke with a subsequent reward with great views over the Ruhr area. This dump also offers paths all around that are also to be discovered and highly recommended. Nearby, the Ewaldsee is also worth a trip.

    Where in the pot can you see a nicer sunset?

    If you run into the sunset while jogging in the afternoon and the Ruhr area sinks into a red shimmer, jogging is even more fun for the inexperienced

    When the weather is nice, the view up there is just great. The Ruhr area is at someone's feet 👍🏻

    BIG FIVE - Halden number 3: Halde Hoheward!
    Bergehalde ⛰️ from BW Recklinghausen II colliery, Ewald and General Blumenthal/Haard. Between Herten and Recklinghausen, together with Hoppenbruch, it forms the largest heap landscape in the Ruhr area. The highest point of the heap: 152.5m above sea level. NN.
    🔝 Really good: ring, balcony promenade and serpentine paths with the highlights: horizon observatory, sundial, obelisk, dragon bridge.
    View = great!
