    In the Middle Ages, "Burg an der Wupper" was the capital of the Bergisches Land. From here, the counts of Berg reigned their little kingdom. Even today, the castle towers high above the Wupper, in lower castle old half-timbered half-timbered houses nestle closely in angled lanes. Cafés and restaurants invite you to stop.As picturesque as the village is today, there were a number of typical industrial enterprises here in the valley, including an iron foundry, a machine factory, a wool mill and various sanding shops.

    Tip for parking: Parking spaces in Unterburg are free of charge, unlike those at the top of the castle.

    Cute, small district on the Wupper with beautiful Bergisch cafes and restaurants. From here you can take the cable car up to Burg Castle or walk.

    Burg Castle towers high above the Wupper, the idyllic one in the valley
    Lower castle: centuries-old half-timbered houses with typical green shutters
    nestle tightly in winding alleys. Black, green and white
    - that is the Bergisch triad. The picturesque village is framed
    of beautiful nature that invites you to walk and hike.
    Below as above: Cafés and restaurants invite you to stop. Specialties
    are the burger pretzels, the Bergische coffee table or the Bergische

    The ascent from the Eschbach valley to the castle is very pleasant and not very busy, the reward is the view from the castle and nice bars that invite you to linger.

    Beautiful village at the foot of Castle Burg. Nothing going on in Corona times, but that will change again soon.

    "... Many books tell of Burg Castle, tell of sagas, fairy tales and legends from the Bergisch region. There is also a story about the origin of the burger pretzel. In 1795, a wounded soldier from Napoleon's troops is said to be billeted at a burger bakery and taught him the art of baking pretzels. The product was a hit, from then on many families lived from the pretzel bakery. The burger pretzel became the landmark of Schloss Burg - in Unterburg there is even a memorial for the pretzel baker ... "
