Wuppertal-Vohwinkel, Germany - 31st July 2015

By: olgamaus

Hi Mum,

today I accompanied Katja to her workplace in Wuppertal-Vohwinkel, the most Western district. Katja is working in an IP law firm. We went there by Schwebebahn. School holidays are still going on, so the station was nearly empty.

The Schwebebahn was established in 1901. The tracks are 8 m above the streets and 12 m above the Wupper River. Here you can see one of 20 stations along the 13,3 km long route. It is called Ohligsmuehle. Getting to Vohwinkel took us about 15 minutes.

In the afternoon, after work, we took a short walk in Vohwinkel. The building with the tower is the city hall.

One of the two terminal stops of the Schwebebahn is in Vohwinkel. The trains are changing their direction here and also can be detoured in a special garage for repair or maintenance works.

In Vohwinkel the Schwebebahn is not following river Wupper, but the main street.

We walked through some side streets then. Most houses are much smaller than those in Elberfeld, where I am living currently.

Back on the main street.

From here you can also see that there are lots of woodland areas surrounding the city.

We went back to the Schwebebahn here, at the last station before the motorway is crossed.

Katja told me that we would visit a friend in the evening, she is living in Remscheid, where Katja also lived until last year.
