    If the time is short in the evening, the heaps of the Ruhrpotts offer for short, crisp laps, which still have it in itself. The Halde Haniel is one of the highest heaps of the Ruhr area and holds some highlights for you.Beautiful mountain bike trails await you with numerous possibilities of variation, so that you can extend your after-work ride if necessary. There are cultural as well as sporting highlights here. Once upon a visit to the Pope, a Way of the Cross was laid out on the heap, making it ideal for Alpine-style summit cross selfies. On the plateau of the heap is an amphitheater, which will give you the feeling of a moon landing.If you make a little detour down the heap, you can watch the impressive jumps of the nearby BMX dirt track and, with a bit of luck, admire some dirt bikers as well. This short round is anything but boring and, if you have a little more time, can easily be extended by hanging one of the many other trails in the two heaps.

    Attention: the bridge is closed before the Stations of the Cross. This will stay that way for some time. The selected departure is to be rated with S4-S5.
