Mountain Biking Highlight
The unused on the upper meters of the heap Rheinelbe in the south of Gelsenkirchen is like a lunar landscape and is therefore very popular among the dirt bikers. There is a lot to discover here: many of them lead very steep and challenging trails down into the woods at the foot of the heap. In a private blog, the heap is very beautifully described: meinmtb.de/touren/29-noch-viel-zu-lernen-halde-rheinelbe
On the summit there is the Himmelstreppe as a landmark and from the top you have a beautiful panoramic view over the middle Ruhr area. Especially at sunset, the panorama is wonderful!
Halde Rheinelbe is located right on the time at the newly planned
