Unusual observation deck Jahrtausendblick in an abandoned amusement park

Every time we drove along the A2 motorway between Hannover and Dortmund, we saw an unusual structure on the mountain. It turned out that a Steinzeichen amusement park had been built there for the EXPO 2000. However, the company that owned it went bankrupt, and the park gradually began to deteriorate.

In 2020, the area was handed over to a private initiative that cleaned it up and opened to the public. Now it's not an amusement park in the sense you would imagine. The place is half abandoned, it's kind of a big loft with walking paths. You can walk here with the kids, and visit a cool observation deck at the very top of the park.

The parking lot is near the autobahn A2, then you have to walk under a massive bridge.

There is a small restaurant near the entrance, open on Saturday and Sunday. The place is surprisingly very nice, we were in November and there was a bonfire. There are also several attractions for children.

There is a map of hiking trails on the park's website https://www.jahrtausendblick.de/. From the entrance, we turned right and went straight up the brown trail to the observation deck.

The park is not suitable for people with limited mobility, the elevation difference is 120 meters, though we managed to climb to the top with a baby carriage.

From the top you can see the surrounding mountains, although these are not mountains, but ancient corals, since there was a sea here. Also a nearby quarry is visible.

On the way down, we turned onto a blue path and walked along another path, where sculptures by famous sculptors from around the world are placed.
