Suspension line in Wuppertal

March 31, 1901, is the date of the official inauguration of the suspension line in Wuppertal, Germany. The operational track is nearly 14 km. There are 20 stations. On a weekday 87 000 passenger use this suspended monorail in the valley of Wuppertal. If you will come to Germany you have to see this suspension line and you have to go by the Wuppertaler Schwebebahn. It is nice to see the river Wupper under your feet most of the way.

monorail is very good, and it's safe for passengers?

We've been to Wuppertaal last year. Actually, it was in our plan to drop there but unfortunately, we ware running out of time and we were lost on our way back to Kohn(Cologne) from Dusseldorf. As we noticed that the train we boarded was not the right one, we accidentally stepped out in Wuppertaal. What a coincidence as my friend shouted as she saw the inverted or suspended train. We took photos of it and stayed in the train station for 30 minutes while waiting for connecting train to Bonn.
