    This station is the busiest stop; The stop, which opened on March 20, 1926, replaced a predecessor building. The first building, popularly known as the "Elberfelder bathtub" because of its shape, was no longer able to cope with passenger traffic, so in 1925 construction began on the Köbo Haus, which is also the commercial building and bus stop. Since the station is not supported directly by the main support structure of the suspension railway, in 2000 it was possible to replace the scaffolding with a roof hatch. The station could be rehabilitated and did not have to be dismantled. The station is the only one of the route, which was opened before the Second World War after complete expansion; It opens up the city center of Elberfeld and the Wuppertal central station. Parallel to the route between the Brausenwerther bridge and the station is also the main bus station Wuppertal.

    The suspension railway station Hauptbahnhof in the Elberfeld district is one of the most important stations on the Wuppertal suspension railway. It opens up the Elberfeld center and is named after the Wuppertal main station. It used to be called Döppersberg like the neighboring intersection, this name is still listed as an additional designation on the station signs. The stop is the busiest on the suspension railway as it is located at the city's main transport hub.

    The suspension railway station is located in the center of Elberfeld and connects directly to the pedestrian zone in the direction of Elberfeld center. Opposite the suspension railway station on the other side of the Bundesallee (B 7) is the main train station and bus station.

    In addition to the suspension railway station between the main train station and the Brausenwerther bridge, there was also Wuppertal's central bus station, the main train station, with which it formed the most important local transport hub in Wuppertal until the summer of 2014.
