Remscheid, Germany - 9th October 2009

By: olgamaus

Hi Dad,
when Katja finished work the sun was still shining which you should better not take for granted because they have lots of rain here, due to the rangy landscape. So we took the chance to take a walk before we went home.

From a bridge I had a look at Remscheid's highest-located district, in the background.

Close to the central station I saw this round building.

Katja decided to walk along the Werkzeugtrasse (Route of Tools) with us. This is a lane which was built on a closed railway track for pedestrians and cyclists. It starts at the central station and is leading to the district Hasten.

Remscheid is famous for its tool producing industry. This lane was sponsored by local tool producing companies, that's why it is called Route of Tools. The lane is about 5 km long with some interesting points along the route.

Here we are at the central station ...

Here you can sit down and rest for a while.

Here are some signs showing the names and logos of some of the sponsors.

Sometimes you can find distance data painted on the ground.

Of couse you can find bridges along a former railway track ...

... and also old factory buildings. Some of them are still in usage.

At this point the Route of Tools is crossing a street. We decided to walk home than.

From here we had to walk for about 15 minutes to get home.

In this part of the city most old houses survived World War II.

Katja is living in an art-nouveau-house built in 1904. I will show you the house soon.
