Some landmarks in the Ruhr area, Germany

Triangular pyramid in Bottrop, Germany, 60 m high and standing on a heap. The highest lookout is 42 m high. You have a panoramic view from here.

The "Spurwerkturm" maid of about 1000 wooden guide rails from a former coal mine and you can find it in Waltrop

This is a water tower in Recklinghausen.
