    "The Tippelsberg is a survey and a recreational area in the north of Bochum.
    The mountain itself is a comparatively high elevation in the landscape for the region Mittleres Ruhrgebiet, which forms a landmark in the area of ​​the Bochum districts Grumme, Riemke and Bergen.
    In the 20th century, the Tippelsberg was used over a period of 14 years as a landfill for construction and soil debris. Among other things, the excavation of the Bochum U-Bahn U35 was deposited here. This more than compensated for the height of the natural dome lost due to subsidence.
    The artificially elevated summit today reaches a height of 150 meters above sea level (40 meters above ambient level), the bulk cone is 18.5 hectares. From the summit you can look far into the Ruhr area with a clear view. "Source: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tippelsberg
    The Tippelsberg is the subject of various folk tales. One of them is: The giant Tippulus once completed a long journey. On the way he stopped to free his shoes from clay lumps, these resulted in the Tippelsberg. References to these legends were installed as landscape elements on the mountain, for example a huge footprint.

    Great view of the surrounding region. A lot of wasps in summer. Better not plan a picnic up here.

    The mountain itself is a relatively high elevation in the landscape for the Middle Ruhr Area, which forms a landmark in the Bochum districts of Grumme, Riemke and Bergen.In the 20th century, the Tippelsberg was used as a landfill for construction and ground rubble for a period of 14 years. Among other things, the excavation of the Bochum underground line U35 was deposited here. This more than compensated for the height of the natural crest, which had been lost due to subsidence.The artificially raised summit now reaches a height of 150 meters above sea level (40 meters above the surrounding area), the extension of the cone is 18.5 hectares. From the summit you can see far into the Ruhr area on a clear day.

    Among other things, this is where Bochum's rubble mountain from the nights of bombing in World War II is located.
