Bike Touring Highlight
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.

Artfully designed bridge as a transition from the heap Hoheward to Recklinghausen. The look is based on a dragon, hence the name "Dragon Bridge". Only for pedestrians and cyclists to use - no cars. From there you can continue the bike path to Recklinghausen. In the other direction you can either use the balcony promenade of the heap which leads you completely around the heap at half height, or you can dare the ascent to the very top.
