Olpe is a court in the Wuppertal residential area of Herbringhausen in the district of Langerfeld-Beyenburg.
The farm is located on Landesstraße 81 at 293 m above sea level. NHN, surrounded by hilly agricultural land on the edge of the Garschager Heide. To the east is the Herbringhauser dam, to the southwest is the city limit of Remscheid-Lüttringhausen. To the west is neighboring Olperhöhe and to the north is the hamlet of Windgassen. Olpe is located in the headwaters of the Olper Siefen, a tributary of the dam.
Olpe gave its name to the Herbringhauser Bach, which was called Olpebach in the Middle Ages and early modern times. The old name Ohl(p)scheidt of the Herbringhauser Forest also goes back to the farm name. A historic bakery is still preserved in the courtyard, but is used as a storage shed. On one of the buildings you can still find an old house number from the beginning of the 19th century.
