Get to know Wuppertal (no more "I wish I knew this before")

This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Wuppertal.

If you are interested in history, Wuppertal has a rich industrial heritage and more than four thousand buildings that are national monuments. Wuppertal is one of the few larger cities in the region that has not been destroyed during World War II and has many buildings from various architecture styles like Neoclassicism, Eclecticism, Jugendstil, and Bauhaus -- the city is like an exhibition for architecture history.

Some of the places to visit are Ölberg (Oil Mountain –- a preserved neighborhood of the working class in first middle of the twentieth century); the House of Friedrich Engels; the Tanztheater; and of course, the century-old Schwebebahn (suspension railway built in 1901 and still operating). The Tanztheater is among the best in the world for modern dance and you must see it if you visit the city. If you are not interested in architecture or you catch the season when the Tanztheater is closed, you may find the city quite boring –- it is a quiet place with rich history. On the contrary, if you like history and architecture, Wuppertal will fascinate you.

Wuppertal is definitely not a popular tourist destination and as such, there are not many hostel options in Wuppertal. The ones that are available are far from the city center –- Wuppertal hostels are about five kilometers from it and to get there you would need public transportation. Of course, you can go for a long walk if you do not have much luggage with you. Getting to the hostels in Wuppertal from the train station is also not very convenient.
