    The Korte cliff

    This viewpoint is located near the Schellenberg hunting lodge on the southern edge of the Schellenberger forest and north of the Baldeneysee, the largest of the six Ruhr reservoirs that was dammed up in 1933. From this point you can see the entire lake from the dam to the transition to the Ruhr west of Kupferdreh. In addition, the Essen suburbs of Fischlaken and Heidhausen, located south of the lake, can be identified. About 600 meters to the west is the ruins of the Neue Isenburg. The geological hiking trail on Lake Baldeney runs below the cliff, where Ruhr sandstone was once mined.

    From my point of view the most beautiful view over the Baldeneysee from the whole tour or from the Baldeneysteig.
