Wuppertal is a picturesque German city located in the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia, on the banks of the Wupper River. Wuppertal was founded at the beginning of the 20th century and is one of the youngest cities in Germany. Previously, the territory of the city consisted of several settlements and was united only in 1929, therefore, the city does not have a single historical center. The city is located on the hills and is buried in green vegetation, which attracts tourists not only with its sights, but also with its beautiful natural landscapes. In addition, Wuppertal is an important industrial, economic, educational and cultural center of the country.

The main attraction of the city and its pride is the suspension railway, the construction of which began in 1898. It is noteworthy that even before the opening of the railway, the Kaiser of Germany Wilhelm II used it. Currently, the Kaiser's carriage runs around the city, and, if desired, it can be booked for various events. The suspension railway is very popular among tourists, as the windows of the carriages offer a breathtaking view of the cityscapes.

The Elisa Tower, which is 21 meters high, is also a favorite place for the guests of the city. There is an excellent observation deck at the top of the tower, which opens an amazing panorama of the city. The architectural monument is surrounded by a green park with a beautiful botanical garden, a visit to which is an integral part of the excursion route. The botanical garden contains a variety of exotic plants, which are in perfect harmony with the artificial lake, decorative elements and various green spaces.

An interesting place to visit is the Von der Heydt-Museum located in the very center of the city, in the restored building of the Old City Hall. The museum offers a unique exposition of old arts, so an excursion here will definitely not leave art connoisseurs indifferent.

Wuppertal is a cozy German city that organically combines modern architecture and beautiful nature. Here everyone can find something to do and enjoy the unique atmosphere of this city.
