Saarland planned a hike.
June 25, 2020
Feel like the king (or queen) of the world - you can do that on the Berghalde Duhamel near Ensdorf. With a footprint of almost 50 hectares and a height of 150 meters, it is one of the largest of its kind, is a popular starting point for paragliders and has a very special surprise for its visitors on its “top”.There are several ways to the heap. Yours starts at the gates of the sports center in Ensdorf. From here, signs lead to the mountain pile. You can hike up either clockwise or counterclockwise. On the way you will meet beautiful viewpoints and even a place where the famous Ensdorfer sunbed is grown.As soon as you reach the highest point of the tour, the surprise mentioned at the beginning opens up before you: The impressive, 30-meter-high Saar polygon was built to commemorate the coal industry. The idea to symbolize the change in the region has clearly succeeded, because depending on where you look at the monument, it always looks different. And best of all: you can also walk on it and enjoy an amazing view from above. Then the signposted path leads you back to the starting point.
