Town hall Wuppertal
(in Wuppertal´s west)
The town Wuppertal
doesn´t at all belong to the Ruhr - district but more
to the Bergisches Land (mountainous country). You can respect
Wuppertal to be a connecting link between the Ruhr - district
and the Sauerland (sour land) in the south.
The town in the valley of the river Wupper was founded because
of the local modification during the 1920s. Wuppertal uses
therefore the modern name of the river Wupper - in opposition
to the elder town Wipperfuerth which has still got the old
name "Wipper" instead of "Wupper".
Some sections of Wuppertal like Barmen and Elberfeld are
well known at all.
Wuppertal surely offers more than
the world wide famous suspended railroad. But in each case
In want to invite you to make a little trip by this vehicle.
Besides them Wuppertal offers a lot of interesting magnific
old industrial archtecture - but my Website about Wuppertal
is still under work and will be completed about summer 2004.
I beg your pardon and I ask for your patience.
People of this region suffered in the past, like the name
of the Sauerland (sour land) in the south indicates. Therefore
it is no surprise that the thinking of socialism could rise
because of the inhuman situation of living during the early
capitalism periode. Friedrich Engels, a co - founder of
Marxism, and sponsor of Karl Marx was born in Barmen. Today,
after the end of the GDR (German Democratic Republic = East
Germany), it is possible to respect Engel´s efforts
in an unprejudicated way. We should use this chance, because
everybody should learn during the whole of his life.
cannot flee to see and hear the splended railroad of Wuppertal,
which makes the image of the town -
here we see the modern station "Alter Markt" (old market)
Wuppertal - Vohwinkel
of Friedrich Engels.
You can find the historical center in the neighbour - house
where you can visit an exposition about work aud life of
Marx and Engels. Further there are things which documentate
the social and economical development of the region about
of Neptun nearby the pompous town hall of Elberfeld.
