With its numerous gardens and parks, Wuppertal is a very green and nature-conscious city. The green spaces allow for sports, recreation and leisure at the heart of the city. In addition to the botanical variety, Wuppertal also has a lot of wildlife to offer in one of Germany's most beautiful zoos.
The city centre attracts visitors with several shopping arcades; the Werth, Barmen's central shopping boulevard, holds many small retail businesses to discover. The best way to move around the city is by taking the famous Wuppertal suspension railway.
To locals, the suspension railway is not only a means of transport, but also a monument and a landmark. Do not miss out on a journey with Europe's oldest suspension railway during your stay in Wuppertal.
The dance theatre was founded by the choreographer and artist Pina Bausch in 1973. Until today, the ensemble impresses the audience with outstanding performances.
The zoo is managed by scientists and is home to approx. 420 different animal species from all over the world. In addition to different big cats, okapis and gorillas, the zoo features the 2nd largest king penguin enclosure in Europe.
