    In Rombergpark cycling is prohibited. Time and again, cyclists override the ban, environmental activists and the friends and supporters of the Botanic Garden Rombergpark are vehemently campaigning for stronger controls by public order and police and defend themselves vehemently.

    The Botanical Garden Rombergpark is based on an old landscape park in Dortmund-Brünninghausen, which was planned from 1926 in the Romberg Castle Park and from 1951 in its total area as Botanical Garden Rombergpark is called. The term Rombergpark is also named after the surrounding statistical sub-district of the municipality Hombruch. This leads to irritation in the population, because worldwide the Rombergsche castle park under botanical garden Dortmund or botanical garden Rombergpark is recognized.

    With its total area of 65 hectares the Rombergpark is one of the largest botanical gardens in the world. Free, open daily. Some trails allow bikes.
    Established in 1822 as the Romberg family's English landscape park, in 1927-1929 it was acquired by the city and under city planning director Richard Nose enhanced by a small herb garden. Park and castle were badly damaged in World War II, but starting in 1950 director Gerd Krüssmann rebuilt it as an arboretum, adding some 4500 species to the park. In 1958 the park's 1000m² greenhouses were built, and in 1985 a garden of medicinal plants was added.
    Today it contains a historic English landscape park with monuments; an arboretum containing thousands of species of woody plants. (Wikipedia)
    Shallow deposits of iron ore turn the brooks and creeks in this area red from oxidation (rust) dissolving in the water that's warm throughout the year. The area underneath the Botanical Garden and Zoo has been heavily mined in the 18th-19th century.

    The "Red Bach" comes from the mine workings of the former coal mine Glückaufsegen. From the Primeltal he flows with strong current to Schondellebach.
    The rust-brown deposits consist of iron ocher (rust), which the mine water dissolves from deeper ironstone layers. These layers lie between the coal seams.
    The water temperature is 13-15 degrees throughout the year, indicating the origin of deeper, warmer strata.
    Fish and insect larvae can not survive in the stream, as the ocher mud clogs their respiratory system.

    The biotope was landscaped in 1988 and offers the visitor a unique, ecologically significant, highly endangered landscape form. The total area of ​​7000 square meters contains the actual bog with 1000 square meters and the surrounding heathland of 6000 square meters. The plants were planted with peat mosses, moor heath plagues, grasses and other moortypical plants. The moor was intended as a botanical large-scale experiment.
