    At the entrance to the Hoheward heap, you will be greeted by a dragon: its steel head rises 18 meters and the bridge railing rests against the ribs of the fire breather. 198 tons of steel are said to have gone down for the construction. A cool bridge in any case.

    The Dragon Bridge is one of the many attractions on the Halde Hoheward in Recklinghausen Herten. The heap offers around the heap whether on foot or by bike many viewpoints.

    The dump Hoheward is a mining dump in the Ruhr area. It originated from the foundations of the Ewald colliery and the General Blumenthal colliery.
    Located between the cities of Herten and Recklinghausen.
    Together with the Halde Hopfenbruch it forms the largest heap landscape of the Ruhr area.

    Some of the pictures are really good.
    Great when the dragon is looking through the trees or the black and white studies have something sublime.

    The Dragon Bridge is not the main access to the heap, but by far the most interesting and beautiful.
    The curved structure flows into a dragon's head looking at the visitors to the bridge.

    The only criticism is the, in wet, a bit slippery surface.

    The "Dragon Bridge" access is by far the most spectacular entry into the loop trail in the heap.
    Due to the lack of parking at this entrance, it is rather quiet.

    The Dragon Bridge is already a very unusual and impressive bridge, which immediately catches your eye.

    A really nice bridge where the designers have outdone themselves.
    Sadly spoiled by so many "freethinkers" with spray cans, eddings and stickers.
