    Always nice to look at. If you look at the skyline of Leipzig or z.b. would like to take pictures, this spot is exactly right. Whether in the dark, sunrise or during the day. The climb is worthwhile. 😊

    The artificial mountain with a height of 153.3 m above sea level. NN received its colloquial name from the adjacent street, which was named 1908 after the merchant August Adolf Focke. Focke bequeathed the capital of Leipzig to several charitable foundations.
     The "Fockeberg" began on October 1, 1947 with the commissioning of a dump for receiving debris on the former farm pastures. Partly the unloaded debris was also used. Thus, in 1956 larger quantities were transported by truck for the construction of the central stadium.
    In the early 1980s, the design and greening of the dump began. There were created ways, seating and created a total of 15 wooden sculptures, but in the meantime some are no longer available.
