Nature has conquered this terrain:
Birch, alder, summer lilac and goldenrod dominate the heap, striking stone sculptures by the sculptor Ulrich Rückriem (* 1938) serve as landmarks and refer to the former function of the heap as a deposit of the excavation of Zollverein shaft XII. Ulrich Rückriems largest sculpture "Castell" (1992) at the southern end of the heap is a block composed of 24 granite blocks.
