A barbed wire fence prevents you from coming on top of the elephant's head. Apparently there is a risk of falling. In any case, I found no way to the highlight, but then saw it from across the trees weak.
The former "Elefantenkopf" opencast mine is located in the now inaccessible mountain damage area. On our way to the Altusknipp we felt like Silke with Yuna & Yomi: We couldn't find a way to the highlight.
