    In the past, after the railway company, people actually danced and partyed here. Today it is passage for pedestrians and cyclists as part of the Nordbahntrasse.

    The tunnel is not that dark at all, but there is still a duty to turn on the light and that is often controlled by the police.

    The tunnel under the Elberfelder Dorrenberg was built long before the construction of the northern railway line on the initiative of Dajana Meier to the dance tunnel. In her own studio, she used a complex process to produce the ceramic plates from which the emblem Tanztunnel was assembled. Even on the old tracks, there was a nocturnal Tango evening.
    Today no longer dancing, but running and driving in the dance tunnel.

    Little movement? So off .... Nordbahntrasse can get you moving. 🚴♀️🧗♀️🛴 but watch out sometimes even dangerously full.

    The Dorrenberg Tunnel, also called Tanztunnel, is a 175 meter long railway tunnel in Wuppertal. It is located on the railway line Dusseldorf-Derendorf-Dortmund, which was opened in 1879 and is now closed. Wikipedia

    "Say yes, say no, it must be danced!" - the Tanztunnel is one of 5 tunnels on the Nordbahntrasse. Each one is an experience that you will enjoy. Do not forget your bike lights!

    The tunnel directly at Elberfeld, short but with history, because here was really danced earlier if no lanes drove.

    The dance tunnel stops. An old railway tunnel that serves as a cooling off on hot days

    It used to be danced here below the Dorrenberg in Elberfeld. Long after the construction of the northern railway line - tango was danced on the old rails. Unfortunately, people do not dance here today. However, the inscription "Tanztunnel" reminds of the artist Dajana Meier. Elaborately, she has created the beautiful inscription with ceramic plates. Successful work.
    Today you can hike or cycle through the tunnel.
