The Wuppertal Suspension Monorail

The suspension monorail – Wuppertal's landmark – travels 13 km through the city. The network runs mainly above the city's river Wupper, only four of the 16 stops run above solid ground.

More than 80,000 people use the suspension monorail on a daily basis. It is therefore an everyday means of transport for the inhabitants of the city, but also a popular tourist attraction. Many sights can easily be reached on foot from the 20 suspension railway stations.

Since August 1st 2019, only the new "Generation 15" railcars have been in service.
