    "... Gelpe and Saalbach today are very natural rivers. That was not always the case. In the past, water power was used to drive the grinding bowls and hammers. This is how Wuppertal became one of the earliest industrial areas on the continent The nature trail helps to discover the remains of hammers and cottages in ponds and ground monuments. The Clemenshammer shows the historical technology including the waterwheel in action.
