On a clear day you overlook the cities of Bottrop, Oberhausen, Essen and Gelaenkirchen. You can even see as far as the Skyline of Dusseldorf. The view gives a good impression how green the Ruhr area has become. There are some coal mine monuments (very...More

This is how an alien spaceship might look like. The sign at the entrance says that the climb is a contemplative experience, because at each platform you have to decide: shall I turn back or continue. A unique experience it certainly is, even without aliens.
