Hanging Trains in Wuppertal - Germany

Schwebebahn, which translates to floating railway but in English it is generally called the hanging railway or the suspension railway. The official German name is Einschienige Hangebahn System Eugen Langen.


Wupppertal is located in the hills of “Bergisches Land”. It’s easy to reach, both by car and by train, from Cologne, Düsseldorf and the Ruhr-region. It is roughly a thirty minute train ride from all three places. The Hanging Railway stops at the main railway station, Hauptbahnhof in German.


There’s something that makes Wuppertal unique in this world: It has a suspension railway!
The “Wuppertaler Schwebebahn” has been connecting the different centers of Wuppertal for more than 100 years now. If you ever get the chance to go on a suspension train here take it. It’s fun and very extra ordinary.



All in all, the Hanging Railway is more of a unique experience rather than an exciting railway journey. Well worth trying if you are in the neighborhood. Although Wuppertal has some other attractions, most tourists go to Wuppertal just for the Schwebebahn.

Thanks and Warm Regards,
