Bike Touring Highlight
The Meppen-Hüntel power plant is a former natural gas-fired peak load steam power plant in Hüntel, a district of Meppen in the Emsland district in Lower Saxony.
The power plant built by RWE in 1974 was shut down in 2000; then the area was redesigned to a leisure park, the Funpark Meppen.
The Swiss artist Christoph Rihs painted a map of the world on the 131 meter high cooling tower of the power plant in 1994. According to the Guinness Book of Records, this is the largest in the world.
