Heaps in the Ruhr area

When you think of a holiday in the mountains, the Ruhr area is probably not the first thing that comes to mind. But why not? Admittedly, our heaps can't keep up with the altitude of the Alps, but they all have a lot to offer. Some green oases were created from mining waste products with plenty of space for sporting challenges and creativity! Make color out of gray - we can do that here in the Ruhr area! Colorful totems, an oversized red miner's lamp or a steel roller coaster - the works of art on the heaps set unique landmarks throughout the Ruhr area and, above all, unique photo spots!
