A visit to the Staatsforst Burgholz in Wuppertal with its unique arboretum (planting of various trees from all over the world for study purposes) is always worthwhile. With an area of around 250 hectares and around 100 different deciduous and coniferous tree species from almost every continent in the world, it is the largest cultivation area with foreign tree species in Germany. There are many different hiking trails and / or MTB or gravel bike trails with a very demanding character (please drive cautiously and show mutual consideration!), Which always give you a new impression. What else can I say, best experience it ;-)))

But behind it, you can hardly believe it:
