The 35-hectare silt basin of Grube Reden is gradually being transformed into a natural lake to function as a water buffer. Excess water streams along the slopes of the 80-meter high rubble slagheap in the direction of the Grube Reden campus and water garden.
The northern half of the terrain is a former soil depot which will be developed as an area for the production of biomass. A 5-hectare bamboo forest is located on the border between the two areas. This forest is situated on a hill with a 20-meter high viewpoint that looks out over the lake. On both sides there are stairs that connect the forest to trails and boardwalks running along the lake and through the Igniscum Plantage. The entire area will be encircled by a 5-km rollerblading route.
