No doubt! A ride with the world-famous suspension railway is obligatory if you come to Wuppertal. At least it is the landmark of the city, its an unique monument of the industrial history. Practically it will bring you fast and at reasonable prices to some of the most beautiful tourist attractions such as the „Tanztheater Pina Bausch“ and to the „Green Zoo“, one of the oldest and scenically most beautiful zoological gardens in Germany. But following you proceed on foot, please! That`s how you can optimally explore the hotspots Ölberg and Luisenviertel and stand still for a photo. Because in Wuppertal you will find literally at every street corner terrific street-art-hotspots such as for example the coloured steps of the „Holsteiner Treppe“. Whoever likes it more classical will find in the „Von der Heydt- Museum“ works from Monet and Picasso and at the sculpture-park workings from the sculptor Tony Cragg. Likewise on foot but also with the bicycle and on inline-skates one can explore the city on former railway lines. For example the „Nordbahntrasse“ leads you on 23 kilometres nearly without crossroads through the city- illuminated tunnels, brick-built viaducts and several observation points included.
In the country but also close-to-the-city: the youth hostel Wuppertal
The youth hostel Wuppertal is located in the district Barmen just a stone`s throw away from the city centre. At the same time the house borders to an extended forest- and nature protection area. This particular site but also the spacious rooms make the youth hostel especially for school classes, leisure-groups and families a popular destination. The huge outdoor area invites for playing, frolicking and rollicking. For congresses and seminars 3 conference rooms with most modern technique are on hand.
