  • There is a local recreation area in the south of the city of Wuppertal. The Gelpe and Saalbach brooks flow here. It is a large wooded area on the hills. There are many hiking trails and paths here. It is good to ride a bike here. There are several cottages by the Gelpe and Saalbach brooks, a sign of industrialization in this region.
    From here you can go to the Ronsdorf dam.

  • The Gelpetal forms together with the Saalbachtal a wooded recreational area in the south of the city Wuppertal on the border to Remscheid.
    The two streams Gelpe and Saalbach unite in the lower Gelpetal mentioned in Zillertal and lead a short time later in the Morsbach, one of the larger tributaries of the Wupper.
