Near this lookout point at the "Galgennück" there is said to have been a court of law in former times.
At an altitude of 465 metres above sea level, the view extends far north over the south-eastern tip of the Lower Rhine Bay, the Zülpicher Börde. The Börde owes its high soil fertility to the so-called loess, which was blown up here during the last ice age and deposited in front of the slopes of the Eifel. The landscape also has a very favourable climate, so that large parts of the Zülpicher Börde are used for agriculture.
Under the Börde landscape there are also large brown coal deposits, which are extracted in 3 large open-cast mines for power generation. The steam clouds of the power plant towers visible in the background are an indication of this.
To the south-east you can see as far as the volcanic Eifel. Clearly visible are the basalt dome of the Michelsberg and the Hohe Acht.
