Schwebebahn is without a doubt one of the wonders of Europe!

Great city, I'm particularly interested in Wuppertal skytrain, although it doesn't look highly used. But it seem to be a great way to use the space above a river.

Thanks for the photos! Loads of pedestrian areas which is great and the Schwebebahn is fantastic. It's a metro for the whole city as the city really did develop in an oddly linear fashion.

As Svartmetall wrote Wuppertall is linear, the city has two center one near the Hauptbahnhof (central station) and an other one in Neumarkt.

The Schwebebahn is well used. It is not crowded (I haven't see any crowded mass transit in Germany) but it is not empty.
According Wikipedia 82,000 passengers use it daily.

Wuppertal looks like a lovely city! There's lots of greenery and interesting architecture; seems like a very attractive place to live.

And I have to say, the Schwebebahn adds a certain kind of whimsy to the city that truly makes it unique. Where it's suspended directly above the street, it sort of reminds me of a whimsical, hanging version of the Chicago 'L' Trains.

Thanks for so much photos from Wuppertal. I like this town and i love the Schwebebahn. But in the city centre there are soooo much ugly 50s- and
60s-buildings, we can see them on so many of your pics...
