130 meters above the Ruhr at the Hohenstein in Witten you can find the Berger memorial with its beautiful view over the ruhr valley. In my childhood this was a favourite place to visit during Sundays family walks. At that time it looked even more impressive. I was too small to peep over the boundary wall without my fathers help... .

Now - about 40 years later this is my first attempt in shooting a pole panorama. there arestill manythings to improve and to learn, but the deadline time pressre is extremely motivating.

Louis Berger (1829-1891) owned one of Wittens foundrys, was a member of the German Reichstag and one of the founding members of the Witten gymnastic club – one of the first sports clubs in Germany. In 1902/03 members of the gymnastic club supported the building of the Berger tower as a sign of their appreciation.
