Whenever you visit Wuppertal do not miss this spectacular and unique ride! The Schwebebahn is part of the public transportation system and therefore relatively cheap. Excepcially children like the ride above the river Wupper. You will not find anything similar anyplace else.

I don't normally like zoos but this place had large enclosures and they used the space well. The animals all seemed happy and well cared for. Lots of information about each animal. Good eating facilities and great value for money.

The Wuppertal Suspension Railway - or the Schwebebahn - is the key transport operation in this small German city, but whilst it may look small, and perhaps "quaint" it is a great way of getting around Wuppertal. As a first time user of the railway...More
