    The Nordbahntrasse runs parallel to the valley floor through Wuppertal and is an old, converted railway line. You can ride undisturbed and car-free from Wuppertal Vohwinkel to Schee station in Sprockhövel. There are several tunnels (note: lighting is essential and you have to have it!) And on some viaducts the view of Wuppertal is phenomenal.

    Not just a bike path, but enough space for everyone.

    The Nordbahntrasse is equally worthwhile for hikers, cyclists, inline skaters, etc., just not all at once. At the weekend when the weather is good, I found the route very crowded, which of course also speaks for its popularity. It is nicer if you start very early. A nice way to explore the route by bike is the entrance at the Wuppertal Vohwinkel train station. From here you can always easily descend the route to Hattingen. Alternatively, you can take the junction towards Ruhr via the Alte Kohlenbahn.

    The route connections at the end in Schee are also very interesting, where you can continue towards Hattingen or Gevelsberg with a transition towards Wengern. Can be easily combined with the Ruhr Valley Cycle Path. But then it will be a bigger tour ... ;-)

    East-west connection on a former railway line through the middle of Wuppertal. Several tunnels, beer garden and dozens of other leisure opportunities. The route is full in the evenings and on weekends.
