3rd CASCADA Garzweiler Tour / Meeting 2023




The tour goes to the Rhenish brown coal mining area.
The trip in the opencast mine is carried out with an off-road bus. Since the capacities are very limited in this respect, the trip with the off-road bus to the opencast mine will be limited to 39 people.
Minimum age is 10 years, dogs are not allowed..
I will organize the tour in such a way that I want with those who can or will not participate in the exploration of the mine, (for example, dog owners) a small tour to the viewpoint Jüchen etc. will make. This also means for those who still want to take part in the tour, just let me know.
I have already created a list of participants and reserve the right to do so, not to register those who have already taken part in the 2017 or 2022 tour for the open pit tour. I hope you understand that.
It would be nice if you let me know how many people you have and if you would like to have breakfast or dinner. I will update the list of participants and the schedule from time to time.

Here is a small selection of hotels. The first ones are near the first meeting point. I've picked out some in the bigger area.
The old town of Mönchengladbach can be reached on foot from Leonardo and the first meeting point is about 15 minutes away.
The second meeting point can be reached from Düsseldorf in a good 35 minutes.
The hotels are not rated by me.

I am looking forward to the participants from
