A former train track has been converted to a very nice "street" but just to walk, ride a bike or skating. I have been using an e-bike to explore Wuppertal from a different side and can confirm, Wuppertal is a very nice city with a...More

You should keep in mind that the project to transform the forgotten rail track into this gem was set up by the people of Wuppertal, with very little support from the City Administration. Great initiative! I live in Wuppertal so I use it rather frequently,...More

We went for a walk. Excellent idea to use this bridge for a walk and cycle way. You get a nice ovetlook of the city and enjoy. There are play gardes along the way as well if you have young children

Great for walking or cycling, perfectly smooth surface, but quite busy. Lovely views too, and really flat.

Nice to walk. Special for bikers. If the weather is good, maybe its overcrowded. Some nice views and some restaurants along the way for a rest.

you can find many people riding bikes and rollerskating there. It is a wonderful place to walk and get away from the busy streets. I like it in the morning and it's a wonderful place if you like jogging.

In a city with more hills and stairs than citizens probably its really cool to have a old railway turned into an even walk/bicycle way. Good for a walk, running or cycling

Started at the station at Utopiastadt where they loaned us bikes. We rode east to the tunnel Schee and back. The tunnels, viaducts and views were interesting. The path was paved, grade was gentle and canopy kept things cool. Had great food and beer at...More
