    Also this lake is owed to the mining. The seams in the subsurface can be thought of slowly and there are always such depressions. It's just good that nature is stronger than humans. Here a little stream meandered a few years ago.

    Here you can still encounter nature in its most natural form. The plants and fauna blend beautifully together in this place and form an exciting ecosystem.

    What a great atmosphere in this place. I imagine in winter or fog very great. We were there by sun and already blown away. A real hiking highlight!

    Kirchheller Heath
    The northern part of Bottrop's urban area is dominated by a vast landscape of green and forest, the Kirchheller Heide. As part of the "Hohe Mark" nature park, it is an important factor in Bottrop's recreational value.
