Wuppertal is one of the most interesting and diverse cities in Germany. It is known for its large forested area, called the Bergisches Land, and the suspension railway that runs through it.
The city is also home to a large number of factories, which have given it the nickname "the city of 1000 chimneys." But despite its industrial history, Wuppertal is also a green city, with plenty of parks and gardens. The city center is home to a pedestrian-only zone, and there are also a number of interesting museums, including the world's largest collection of bicycles.
