Mountain Biking Highlight

    The actually artistically valuable Horizontobservatorium had to be closed and fenced shortly after its opening because of damage. More than half a decade is already a legal dispute. The refurbishment costs are, according to the report, so high that a demolition is not ruled out. Visitors will only be able to see the view from afar.

    A visit to the Hoheward heap itself, however, is a clear recommendation for hikers and cyclists, the view in good visibility compensated in any case for the efforts of the climb.

    Imposing structure. The inner surface of the Horizontobservatoriums is unfortunately blocked because of construction defects to enter. The way here is still worthwhile. Great view.

    Not a prehistoric stone circle, but an impressive calendar construction of the 21st century: A breathtaking highlight on the northern summit plateau is the horizon observatory.

    Even if the inner surface is closed due to construction deficiencies, it is an imposing structure that can be seen from afar. With a lot of wind there is a nice whistling concert up there ... :-)

    The heap with its installations can already be seen from afar.

    Set up at the end of 2018 and partially torn up half a year later due to cracks in the floor construction
