    The Saarpolygon rises imposingly and from far away on the Duhamel slag heap. Landmark, symbol of tradition and change, "gateway to the future", a new landmark.

    Anyone who climbs the stockpile and the 30-meter-high, walk-in sculpture has a fantastic 360 ° panoramic view of large parts of the Saarland from a total of 180 meters, whose varied landscape and business locations lie at the viewer's feet.

    The Saar polygon changes in many ways with the time of day and the location of the viewer. Natural interplay of light and shadow enliven the structure during the day, while strips of light on the staircase structure allow the sculpture's inner opening system to emerge at night. Then the Saar polygon seems to shine from the inside.

    A few more steps and you can enjoy a great view over a large part of the Saarland. Since the polygon shakes a bit in the wind and offers a good view down, you should bring no fear of heights. Otherwise you do not need any special equipment for the ascent or you can.

    The 250 t heavy and 28 m high steel structure was built by Förderverein Bergbau-ErbeSaar e.V. and completed in 2016.

    For the view, the few steps are definitely worthwhile. In any case, one should note the cold wind blowing much stronger there than on the heap itself.

    A very nice view over a part of the Saarland. Who climbs the polygon should note that it is quite windy up there;)

    The Saarpolygon built in spring 2016 on the Duhamel hillside near Ensdorf not only impresses with its breathtaking panoramic view, but also looks different from every side. A well-developed path leads you up here. There are enough parking spaces below. If it gets scarce, just park at the outdoor pool, the 300 meters more are worth it anyway.

    The Saarpolygon in Ensdorf (Saar) is a memorial to commemorate the coal mining in the Saar district that finally ended in June 2012.
    This heap with a floor area of around 50 hectares rises around 150 meters above the surrounding Saar Valley. Due to the exposed location, the polygon is widely visible from all directions.
    The accessible monument is around 30 meters high. Exactly 132 steps at a height of 25 meters lead from both sides to the cross piece spanning around 35 meters. The viewing platform weighs around 60 tons.
    The sculpture was erected in spring 2016 and was completed on 16/17. Inaugurated September 2016.
    147 designs were submitted for this project; The competition was won by the Berlin architecture duo Katja Pfeiffer and Oliver Sachse.

    Beautiful view from the top. From here you can see large parts of the Saarland to France.

    The Saar polygon in Ensdorf is currently closed to visitors. The mining association BergbauErbeSaar informed about this on Tuesday (November 3, 2020). The reason for the closure "until further notice" is the nationwide stricter corona regulations.
