  • ROBERT, mit dem Rad & Hund durchs Land.

    The heap Rheinelbe (also called Himmelstreppe) is about 100 m above sea level. NN high [1] accessible and passable mountain dump in Gelsenkirchen-Ückendorf. It is located at the Leithestraße in Gelsenkirchen. The Halde Rheinelbe is very popular with dirt bike, downhill and freeride riders, who have built various routes over time to drive off the beaten track.

    A cool, slightly surreal location on the bare, uncovered heap of cones. From the top you have a great view of the dump landscape of the Ruhr area.

    Artwork made of old concrete blocks. Climb? At least some "artists" do it, as the many graffiti show.
