The forgotten train journey

Wuppertal, Germany:

The germans have always been ahead in the development of technologies, so also in transport. This railway we want to show you today is actually only a 13.3 km long tram tour, and is located in the German city of Wuppertal, near the border of France. Wuppertal has only 350,000 inhabitants.

The city, earlier a thriving industrial center larger than the neighboring Colony, now has only a tourist attraction left that attracts train enthusiasts. We guess more people should know about this sensation!

Hanging in the sky, an unique train journey

The concept is unique: A hanging railway!

While many other cities trams systems preferred surface or underground, Wuppertal decided to use the idea of Eugen Langen, who during the years of 1880 to 1890 designed a pendant in Dresden, a funicular railway. The designer died in 1895 and did not see his new work completed since it opened in 1901 and it is still used today. Most of the route runs over the course of Wupper, a river that crosses the city. The stretch of land (3 km) hangs on the streets. The support pylons are different than the stretch of the river. Trains traveling at 8 meters on the streets and 10 to 12 feet above the water. The stations are very interesting for its architectural styles.
