Wuppertal

When I first saw an image of the Wuppertal Schwebebahn, I didn’t think it was real - I assumed it was either some half-baked, late century utopian dream that never happened, or maybe part of some.

Wuppertal, Germany: is a city in North Rhine-Westphalia, located in the Wupper River valley, east of Düsseldorf and south of the Ruhr area. Two-thirds of the total municipal area is green space. It is known for its steep slopes, parks, and its unique suspension railway, the Wuppertal Schwebebahn. I stopped on my bicycle tour through Europe in 1979. I stayed at the local IYH before pushing my bike up a hill and cycling on and to Cologne.
