    Fabulous view over the Rhine and the region. Not light at the moment not accessible, because fenced. But the view is so beautiful too.

    The stockpile Rheinpreussen is a 74 m above ambient level heaped mountain dump in Moers-Meerbeck. It has a total height of 103 m above sea level. NN. Owner since 2001, the Regional Association Ruhr.
    The overburden comes from the nearby Rheinpreußen colliery, which was the first left bank of the Rhine mine. So this heap was also one of the first green heaps in the Ruhr area.
    In order to expand the heap to become a landmark, the Regionalverband Ruhr decided at the end of 2005 to build a tower about thirty meters high in the form of a miner's lamp on the heap. The design is by the artist Otto Piene.

    As a symbol of Ruhr.2010 the jazz is the most famous landmark.
    With the unique idea of a walk-in light-art staged miner's lamp
    invites the jazz to summit storm and cultural enjoyment alike.

    The stockpile Rheinpreussen is also panorama of the route industrial culture:
    In 1998 Kultur Ruhr GmbH selected further mining dumps for the artistic design as landmarks within the framework of the IBA Emscher Park. Dr. Brockhaus, director of the Lehmbruck Museum Duisburg, asked the artist Otto Piene to design the landmark Rheinpreussen as a landmark in a tradition-rich industrial environment. Piene's design foresees red-lit heaps of land around 70 meters high, a 30-meter-high tower in the form of an oversized steel safety light of the miners, the "lighted". In the darkness, the light tower shines over the red heap. Red illustrates the energy of coal and the glow of steel, the engine of economic development.

    Art on waste dumps that today are a paradise for humans and nature. The miner's lamp builds the bridge to the history of the mountain / Bergswerk to the people who created these dumps in the face of sweat.
    The view of the Rhine Valley is terrific.

    It is probably the largest miner's lamp in the world, the thousands of motorists on the Rhine bridge of the A42 from Duisburg coming every day - the Internet lexicon Wikipedia even referred to it as "the largest Montankunstwerk in the world." High above Moers rises with the so-called Geleucht one of the most impressive and beautiful landmarks in the Ruhr, which is beautiful, not only in the daytime, but also at dusk. It stands on the largest mountain dump of the Rheinpreußen colliery.

    Immediately next to the Waldsee, the Halde Rheinpreußen on the edge of Moers towers into the sky. The colliery was the first left bank of the Rhine in the Ruhr area and initially promoted coal at Duisburg from 1876, after the first drilling was made in 1851. The mining dump was poured from 1963 on the site of an old excavator lake and until 1990 to its present form. It has a base of approximately 52 ha and a maximum height of 103.5 meters above sea level. It surmounts the surrounding area by about 77 meters and is thus almost the same height as the heap Beckstraße in Bottrop, which is well known with its tetrahedron well beyond the Ruhr area, and seventh highest heap in the Ruhr.

    Here, the ascent to the heap is worthwhile especially in the evening when the lighting of the large miner's lamp (ala Geleucht) is switched on. But also during the day you have a great view in good weather.

    As we climbed up, it was a gravel road. That was not great and we had to dismount sometime. But the effort was still worth it, the view was fantastic. To get on the light, we were there at the wrong time. This will be made up on occasion.

    Robert already said a lot about the heap himself, so I want to add the following here.
    The heap offers a beautiful view over the Rhine. From here you can see the contrasts of nature and man who have created the landscape together.
