The river on the right, the road ahead of you, the suspension railway above you and, running over it, the train: welcome to Wuppertal. Right after the Sonnborn junction, you delve into a completely different world.
Zooviertel is more tranquil, Arrenberg on the other hand was once a workers’ quarter. Here you can find somewhere more creative to relax - almost in the centre, but only almost.
On the opposite side, Briller Viertel is where the richer people live. Mirker train station has recently reinvented itself as a co-working space and event location. A good opportunity to take a short break.
In Barmen, follow the Wupper and the suspension railway through the elongated centre of the valley. Interesting sights: Landgericht suspension railway station, the Steinweg Viaduct and Immanuelskirche, which is now a cultural centre.
