Nestles in the Narrow Valley of the Wupper

Aug 18, 2007
Wuppertal is a city in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It is located on the Wupper river south of the Ruhr area. Surrounded by wooded hills it nestles in the narrow valley of the Wupper, whose banks were at one time bordered by bleaching greens, and the city boundaries melt into the hilly fields and extensive woods of the Graf Berg region. In 1929 more than ten small cities joined together to build a big town which was then supposed to be called Wuppertal, being the only name every one could cope with.

The city does not belong to either the Ruhr coal and steel area or the Rhineland. It is a city in the country, the cultural and economic centre of the Graf von Berg region, a verdant district, full of self- assurance, in the heart of the Federal Republic.

Hauptbahnhof, this mall is a clean shopping centre and a place to enjoy fashion, shoes, flowers, jewellery all you can think about. Nice bistros, restaurants and cafes are located inside the mall. Decorated with natural flowers and illuminated water fountains sparkling on every floor shopping becomes a pleasure.

Wuppertal has been a university town since 1972. 17,000 young people from 80 different countries are distributed over 14 faculties. The university can boast such a broad perspective. From the university precincts there is a marvellous view to the city. Both university pub and library are open to the general public.

The Wuppertal Zoo had its 125th birthday in 2006. There is a world-famous zoo with some 3,800 animals and birds housed in a scenically attractive area.

The Wuppertal clock museum, which developed in the course of the time to one of the most universal collections of the world, which were gathered ever about clocks and time measurement.

The thing to do in Wuppertal which you would not be able to experience any where in the world is a trip on the suspension railway the Wuppertaler Schwebebahn. The train is hanging from tracks above shopping streets and the river Wupper. A wonderful way to see the whole city of Wuppertal. Trains go at a speed of approx. 50 miles per hour. At the opening of the suspension railway in 1900, the Emperor Wilhelm II was one of the party. The carriage he travelled in, nostalgically known as the Emperors. The Schwebebahn, is more than a hundred years old and carries about 70,000 passengers a day.
