DIRECTIONS

WUPPERTAL

die schwebebahn THE SUSPENSION RAILWAY

Many visitors immediately associate Wuppertal with its famous suspension railway. Its construction in 1901 was a pioneering, innovative feat of engineering. It continues to be used to this day as a popular mode of public transport for the town. The route connects neighbourhoods along the valley with each other. Since 2017, new carriages have been gliding over the Wupper. A trip today is just as worthwhile as it was 100 years ago.

WUPPERTAL

doppersberg Döppersberg

Situated in the centre of North Rhine-Westphalia in the business heartland of the Rhine-Ruhr region, Wuppertal today is a town on the move. The entrepreneurial spirit of its 19th century industrial heyday lives on today in the form of small, creative think tanks right through to innovative global players. The redesign of the entrance to the city centre (and the area around the Wuppertal main station) as part of the major Döppersberg project is just one example of the forward-looking development of a town in which there is much to discover.

stadt-natur TOWN & NATURE

Those looking for something to balance their conference programme, will find plenty of green spaces in the numerous parks that offer unparalleled views of the Bergisch landscape and the town. A highlight is the Grüne Zoo Wuppertal, Wuppertal's green zoo, one of Germany's most scenic zoos. The Schloss Burg - erstwhile seat of the Counts von Berg -, the Müngster Viaduct Park or Altenberg Cathedral are also classics when it comes to day trip destinations in the Bergisches Land.

The world-renowned Tanztheater Pina Bausch is often on tour, but with a bit of luck, you will find it in residence at the Opera House, which has been renovated in keeping with its period features. If that is the case, you may be able to combine your visit with one of their remarkable performances in Wuppertal.
