    Can be very windy. But the view in good weather is outstanding. Ascension is demanding.

    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, together with the Hoppenbruch heap, it forms the largest stockpile landscape in the Ruhrgebiet. The highest point of the heap is with a height of 152.5 m above sea level. NN reached. The Hoheward and Hoppenbruch heaps are part of the Route of Industrial Heritage and the Hoheward Landscape Park. The owner of both heaps is the Regionalverband Ruhr, which has taken over the land from Deutsche Steinkohle AG. As project promoter, he is responsible for the expansion of the Hoheward dump. In good weather, the Rheinturm in Düsseldorf, which is about 50 km away, can be seen.

    Especially the "balcony promenade" did it to me. Without having to go to the bottom of the heap, views in all directions. Especially recommended in the absence of vegetation.

    Especially this heap offers a spectacular panorama over the Ruhr area.
    If you are not afraid of this alpine challenge, you should not miss the Hoheward heap.

    Very good overview of the entire Ruhr area. One of the largest heaps with extra bike trails. The observatory (sundial) is also an imposing structure.
