    The Black Mountain is a 50 m high heap in the Eschweiler city forest, overgrown with predominantly birch trees. On its top, which is 250 m above sea level, there is a wooden cross, a refuge and a lookout point, from which you have a good view to the east over the Eschweiler city center and the districts of Bergrath, Hastenrath and Weisweiler. But there are also good prospects in the other directions. Its base is around 20 hectares. About 120 steps lead up to its summit; a good dozen of their wooden sleepers are now rotten and can hardly be seen. It is considered a landmark of the Eschweiler mining industry.
    Unfortunately there are idiots here too who think it won't work without their destructiveness.

    Uphill a little exhausting, was also very warm when we were there. But worth it in any case - the view is unique 👍🏻
