Geografical location

[eedit | eedit soorce]

Mülheim an der Ruhr lees at the junction o the hill kintra o the Lawer Bergisches Land, the wastren Hellweg an the plane o the middle Lawer Rhine region.

The brig Mintarder Ruhrtalbrücke in Mülheim, which runs ower the Ruhr an acts as a connector atween Düsseldorf an Essen

The central ceety lees on baith banks o the Ruhr river, aboot 12 kilometre (7 mile) east o whaur the Ruhr's mooth opens ontae the Rhine. It is considered a comfortable location atween urban life in Düsseldorf an life near the Ruhr. The Ruhr traverses the whole ceety for a lenth o 14 km (9 mile) frae sooth-east tae north-wast. Wi the destrict o Broich on its left bank an the Kirchenhügel (Kirk Hill) on its richt bank – the gate o Mülheim – the Ruhr leaves the fuithills o the Rhenish Massif an enters the Lawer Rhine Plain. [3] The ceety's location richt bi the Ruhr is a characteristic o anerly Mülheim in the Ruhr region.

When leukin at its geological structur, the ceety lees on the mairch region, kent as the Marl border, o three regions – the Mittelgebirge o the Bergisches Land, the Lawer Rhine Plain an the Wastphalie Lawland. The auries leein northeast o the Ruhr, wi thair rich loess-conteenin soils, belang tae the naitural region kent as West Hellweg. Whauras it's difficult tae tell frae the surface formations whaur the Westphalian Lawlands begin, the landscapes o the Bergisches Land an the Lawer Rhine Plain are easily recognisable.

The northren fuithills o the Rhenish Massif are characterisit bi the distinctive rock formation o the bare muntain slopes throu which run coal-bearin layers which formit durin the carboniferous period. Here the Ruhr cuts mair nor 50 metres deep intae this Mittelgebirge. This naitural erosion pairtly uncovered thir mineable black coal deposits, which enabled thair sploration an extraction uisin adits. Housomeivver, the coal-rich layers became iver deeper as ane progressed northwaird, which required settin up mines tae extract the black coal. In contrast, the broad bayou (dead airm o a river) o Styrum burgh is characteristic o the featurs o the Lawer Rhine Plain.[4]
