In addition to the historical side, the pinging along the way are a nice destination or stage destination. Anyone who has made the steep climb from Ramsbeck can make the first stop here. The surrounding paths - especially the "Bestwiger Panoramaweg" invite you to go hiking again and again. If you keep your eyes open you are in good hands.

A pinge (or binge) is a wedge-shaped, trench-shaped or funnel-shaped depression created by mining activities. These depressions are often caused by the collapse of old excavation pits, which were operated at low Teufe. Unlike natural terrain forms, a pinge is an artificial entity.In the original sense of the word, the mining terms "pinge" or "binge" refer to the activity of "pinging", which is comparable to "digging up". A "pimped-up" gait train was a gash near the shallow area. The pinge was a scree, a day-like, primitive mine.Pingen arise from excavations on the surface or by exploiting deposits at shallow depths with subsequent collapse of the overburden. Breaking in or collapse of the overburden leads to daily breaks. As a result of daily breaks Pingen arise again. Excavated pings usually date back to the 16th and 17th centuries and are usually only 0.5-1 meters deep. Lower, resulting from the collapse of the overburden Pingen come from the 18th and 19th centuries. Due to the lowered surface of the pinge this is usually surrounded by an annular heap. Some pings are up to 250 meters long and 15 meters wide trenches.
