Halden in Gladbeck the 2nd!
This time it went up the "Halde im Brauck", from which one has a great view of the Mottbruchhalde. The paths are narrow but easy to walk on and you won't meet a soul. What looked a bit different when walking around or halfway across the inaccessible Mottbruchhalde 🤪 well, I actually had nothing to look for there die the moments were priceless for that😊
In the end, it was then again on un forbidden paths around it, always with a great view!

The Zechenpark will present itself as a modern city park in 2020. It offers plenty of space for exercise, relaxation and activities on approximately 25 hectares.
In the center of the park there are two accessible elevations, the small and the large Fritz. Open, blooming meadows with individual trees invite you to picnic, play and sport.
The landmarks of the new quarter square are the 70-meter-high winding tower, which will be the observation tower, and the historic steel frame of the small winding tower.
The WandelWeg adventure axis
The three kilometer long WandelWeg connects the Zechenpark and the city center with the Kamper Gartenreich. Newly laid out footpaths and cycle paths accompany the watercourse of the Great Goorley and meet the Fossa Eugeniana at Kamp Monastery. The development from the first Cistercian monastery on German soil to a mining town can thus also be spatially experienced.

It won't be a dance on the artificial volcano, but a promising heap hopping tour from Karnap to the Braucker Alps and to the heaped up volcano of the Mottbruchhalde in Beritt von Gladbeck-Brauck.
The first around 1.1km will also be my last. Between the Carnaperhof and the "former mud pool" area, I walk along the Boye into the Karnaper wood, where the loop opens to the left
It goes uphill to Halde 19, one of the first heaps made accessible in Gladbeck. It rises around 28m above the surroundings. The prospects end in the bushes and trees. A rope pulley can be seen as a work of art.In the Braucker alpine landscape, the heap 22 is next on the plan. It is higher than stockpile 19, namely around 8m. Paths lead over its two peaks and you have views, for example to the Tetrahedron of Bottrop or over the Nordsternpark, as well as the volcanic landscape of the Mottbruchhalde, which will become the highest in the region.

The Rotbach, originally called Mühlenbach in Dinslaken, is the smallest watercourse in Dinslaken next to the Emscher and Rhine, but it was still crucial for the development of the city. The Rotbach still flows across the city today. In the old town of Dinslaken it is partly visible above ground, but partly also concealed below buildings and traffic routes and is therefore hardly perceived as an important element.

We start our hike at a baroque former moated castle in the Neviges district of the city of Velbert. It is located in the valley of the Hardenberger Bach just north of the Neviges town center at the narrowest point of the brook valley and dates back to a re-establishment of the von Gevertshagen family at the end of the 15th century.And then there was the end of the hike ... The Mariendom in the Velbert district of Neviges, in its severity, looks like an alternative to Gaudi's naturalistic Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. And yet the conspicuously barren sacred building in Neanderland combines both the skilful one
Lighting as well as the preference for the building material concrete with the Catalan crowd puller.
In addition to the lanterns, natural light is decisive for the atmosphere in the cathedral. It falls through stained glass windows designed by Böhm. The most common motif is the rose, a symbol of Mary. Its red bathes the concrete-gray, hall-like “space” in an intense light atmosphere, especially on sunny days.

The Gruiten district of Haan is located in the Düsseltal, which is reinforced here by the Kleine Düssel. One of the discovery loops on the Neanderlandsteig leads us to Gruiten.Gruiten was a limestone mining area for a long time. Smaller pits and quarries can still be seen clearly in the landscape and in the Düsseltal. The best known and most obvious is pit 7, which was managed until the end of the 1960s. The discovery loop does not lead here, but a short detour around one kilometer to the northeast is recommended. Today pit 7 is a nature reserve and a local recreation area.Haan-Gruiten, the historic village on the Düssel, presents visitors with more than 1,000 years of Gruiten history and is a popular excursion destination in the Mettmann district.
