    As Ruhrgebietler or guest of the Ruhrgebiet you must have been here. Sensational view over the area. Ordinary ways lead up and down again.

    One learns that in the Ruhr area more green than gray prevails, which can be determined beyond doubt on the round trip and the view from the observatory.

    Unfortunately not foreseeable when you can enter the plateau again, cracks at the welds. Hopefully it will not be demolished.
    Halde Hoheward and the smaller heap Hoppenbruch form the largest heap landscape in the Ruhr area, many great bike / hiking trails, circular courses, observation decks, trails, a trip is worthwhile, whether on foot or by bike.
    Great view over the Ruhr area at an altitude of 152m.
    The horizon observatory and the sundial are really beautiful buildings.
