    If you think, in the Ruhr Valley, you are always rolling flat in front of you, are you mistaken. Because here too there are real "mountains" with steep driveways and great views. Admittedly, these mountains are not of natural origin: at industrial weddings in the Ruhr area large heaps of land have been formed from the spoil of overburden, slag and construction debris, which have permanently changed the landscape of the Ruhr area. Where once inhospitable lunar landscapes were, you will find today a varied, renatured hilly landscape, which is ideally suited to be discovered by bike.This tour is dedicated to 38 kilometers of the mountains of the Ruhr, the heaps. You start in Essen and button one after the other the heaps Rheinelbe, Pluto, Hoppenbruch and Hoheward. You only steal the heaps. If you want to scale their "peaks", add some altitude and distance to the tour. At the foot of the heaps, it is self-explanatory, where it goes up and even if this tour is a bit more strenuous, you should not miss here and there the great view from the top of the Ruhr area.In addition to the dumps, there are even more highlights waiting for you on this tour. For the UNESCO World Heritage Zollverein you should definitely schedule time and on the Erzbahntrasse is a break in Holgers Erzbahnbude actually mandatory. By the way, the way is in the truest sense of the word already the goal: the tour takes you mostly on beautiful quiet Bahntrassenradwege, which are simply a pleasure!This tour starts at Essen main station and ends in Recklinghausen. From here you can easily return to the starting point by train: the RE42 regional express takes just 20 minutes.
