Everything revolves around the river here. The roaring river is ever-present along Erlebnisweg Wupper (Wupper Experience Trail). Sometimes close enough to touch, sometimes only visible from lofty heights. But you can enjoy its beautiful landscape everywhere along the way.
Its course is also exciting. A great many grinding stones are scattered along the hiking trail and are reminders of the manual grinding of long ago. At the Wipperkotten, you can still see the grinders at their work.
You are very close to nature in the Wupper meadows. The river’s floodplain is a paradise for rare animals and plants. Hike along wildly romantic trails high above the Wupper with wonderful views.
