Tips

  • Markus

    The Schurenbachhalde in the north of Essen is the largest in the city. Once you have found your way up, numerous partly nicely groomed single trails go down. On the large summit plateau there is an upright giant slab as a landmark that can be seen from afar.

    The view from above shows you a panoramic view of the heart of the Ruhr area. In the south is Essen with the many high-rise buildings at the main train station, in which there are corporate headquarters. In the east you can see the white roof of the Arena Auf Schalke and in the north and west the chimneys of the extensive industrial areas of Essen, Bottrop and Gelsenkirchen smoke on both sides of the Rhine-Herne Canal. Up here a Pils (you have to bring your own, you can't buy anything here) at sunset is pure Ruhrpott romance!

    The Schurenbachhalde is about 50 meters high (highest point 86 m above sea level) former dump of the coal mining in Essen district Altenessen. The heap is named after the buried from the 1970s under her waters "Schurenbach" and is located directly on the Rhine-Herne-Kanal, between Emscherstraße and Nordsternstraße and near the Nordstern Park Gelsenkirchen.

    A good 10 meters high is the rusty iron plate.

    In addition to the beautiful view of the wonderful Ruhr area, the graffiti sprayed slab as a landmark offers a beautiful photo opportunity. 👍

    Beautiful trails with partly steep ascents and descents. When I reached the top I had a beautiful view over the Ruhr area.

    The descent by the small pond is recommended. Or if you want to go fast, the long descent down.

    But be careful: pedestrians (with dogs) and horses can cross the path!

    Heap with beautiful trails and barren plateau topped by a steel slab.
    Lizards like to walk in the sun on the plateau.

    Great all-round view of the Ruhr area. You can plan very well up here where you want to go next: Hoheward, Haniel, Tetrahedron, ... :-)

    The wind whistles and the dust dances, but the 360 degree all-round view is unique. Count how many mining towers can still be found from up here. The plateau has something of a lunar landscape.
