On the move

Explore Remscheid, Solingen and Wuppertal under your own steam

The Bergisch tri-city area is multifaceted, as are the ways in which it can be explored. Road trips are ideal for motorbike and car tours. You can also get around Remscheid, Solingen and Wuppertal easily by bus or train.

It’s not just bikers who’s heart rate will increase along the innumerable mountain and valley routes. You should definitely make a pit stop at Café Hubraum in Solingen. Brückenpark Müngsten is a must – for drivers too. Müngsten Bridge sits enthroned above the valley. Germany’s highest railway bridge is also impressive from a canoe tour along the Wupper.

And Schloss Burg is no less impressive. Discover these and other attractions in Solingen, the ‘Klingenstadt’ (city of blades), on the “Rittertour” (knight’s tour) on an oldtimer trolley bus. Ride over the Wupper in style by taking the Kaiser’s cabin of the suspension railway through the Wupper valley. The tour of Lennep’s old town takes you back to the middle ages. Searching for traces is easier on shanks pony in the clothmaker’s town.

Take a break and enjoy the Bergisch hospitality with a Bergische Kaffeetafel (coffee and snacks) at one of the many excursion restaurants.
