Mountain Biking Highlight
From the former overburden belt route between the former Bergheim opencast mine and the Hambach opencast mine, an approximately 14 km long cycle and leisure path has been created - the "Speedway: terra nova".It is part of an approximately 34 km long circuit. The route is not yet fully signposted, so we recommend using the cycling and hiking map or the GPX track.Where in the past vast amounts of earth and stones were transported through the landscape, the paved “Speedway” now invites you to safely cycle, inline skate and go for a walk. On the edge of the Hambach opencast mine, the forum opened in Elsdorf-Berrendorf-Wüllenrath in 2012: terra nova, a viewing and visitor forum with an attached restaurant. From there, the huge bucket wheel excavators can be observed at work in the opencast mine.
