Over Wuppertal Nordhöhen and along the Nordbahntrasse

Wuppertal from above: cycling tour with panoramic views

Even the name sounds promising. Of a very far-reaching view. And there is too. Allow your gaze to wander from Nordhöhen over the low mountain landscape. And take in the city landscape in the Wupper valley from the Nordbahntrasse.

Two stages on one tour. Each one has its own unique character. Anyone who is looking for a sporty challenge will find it here. Guaranteed. The effort required for the ascent is rewarded. With fantastic panoramic views.

The Nordbahntrasse offers something different. All that matters there is enjoyment. The former railway line takes you over imposing viaducts and through a long tunnel. The cycling tour returns to its starting point again almost gradient-free. 

Floating rather than cycling is also called for on this cycling tour: you definitely shouldn’t miss Wuppertal’s suspension railway and the transporter bridge in Brückenpark Müngsten.
