    The Glessener Höhe is an overburden of brown coal mining, which was created and recultivated between 1955 and 1970. The steep slopes are wooded with poplar, beech, birch, oak and spruce trees.

    At the summit cross are 204 m above sea level. NN reached. Until the emergence of the Sophienhöhe, which was heaped up from 1978, this was the highest point between Eifel and Bergisches Land.

    The Glessener Höhe is an artificially constructed hill. It is a former, now recultivated heap of land (dump) of the surrounding lignite mines.

    For us, the best time to take a trip to the Glessener height, if it is a bit cooler, cloudy or slightly windy. In midsummer, the track can be very sweaty with just a few shady spots.

    Unfortunately, the box with the summit book disappeared on May 15, 2018 :-( The man who collects or keeps the summit books, I met at the top of the summit cross.He also told me that on October 3 there is a summit festival with music etc.

    Unfortunately, the Glessener Höhe in summer is a true braking nightmare. Has been repeatedly pursued and stung here. Especially the areas at the top and near Königsdorf are badly affected.
