Wuppertal Travel Guide: 64 reviews and 152 photos


There's something that makes Wuppertal unique in this world: It has a suspension railway! The "Wuppertaler Schwebebahn" has been connecting the different centres of Wuppertal for more than 100 years now. If you ever get the chance to go on a suspension train here take it. It's fun. And very special!

Wupppertal is located in the hills of "Bergisches Land". Around it you will find nature everywhere. I've only seen some other nice spots in Wuppertal like this funnily lit church. But as I have only been here for a trip with the Schwebebahn and to go out at night I might not be the perfect tourguide....

... but I will take you on a trip by suspension train now!



Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Unique form of transportation
  • Cons:Not many other sights I guess
  • In a nutshell:If you like funny trains this is the place for you!

    Wuppertal's Schwebebahn seen through Sabsi's eyes is as opening as when you see the hanging train in Tykwer's "Princess and Warrior" Ganz toll!
