    Narrow streets, black slate houses, green shutters - a typical mountainous street scene in Remscheid-Lennep in an almost circular town center. The German Roentgen Museum is located in the historic old town. Here you follow in the footsteps of the first German Nobel Prize winner and learn a lot about Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen - about his life, but above all about his discovery of the X-rays and the diverse uses of this technology.

    The old town of Lenneps was built in the Quellmuldental of the Linepe-Bach. Your city plan is still a nearly circular Rundling. The medieval main trade route Cologne-Magdeburg cuts through the city from south-southwest to northeast and formed in the former city wall a Cologne and a Schwelmer gate. A second street train (now Wetterauer Straße-Alter Markt-Berliner Straße) relieved the highway and leads from the gates to the city's market square. From there one also opens up the churchyard with the main church of the city. With the Lüttringhauser gate in the northwest and the Mühlenpforte in the east, Lennep had two more entrances to the city, which were connected with each other and the market square via another street (today: Neugasse-Alter Markt-Kronenstraße-Mühlenstraße). The medieval fortification ring, which presumably consisted of a wall, a rampart and a moat, is still traversed by Wallstrasse. In the north, various extinguishing and drinking water ponds joined the Wallstrasse up to the Thüringsberg, but today they are replaced by a green area.

    Very nice old town with several possibilities for a cozy stop. However, cobbled streets and wheel unfavorable to drive.

    Lennep has a great historic downtown that maintains its old houses as well. Of course there's one or the other building sin. It is the construction of an outlet center - hopefully the charm will be preserved anyway. Also great is the rotation theater in an old printing house.

    Remscheid Lennep is a wonderful place and a great sight on the tour. Just drive through and let drift or take a drink at the central square. Easily accessible via Ronsdorf or Beyenburg.

    I was not in the cafe now. But at the place there are several, they do not do much - we were in Josef's for a cyclist. But I can definitely recommend a break there. Good place for a stopover.

    Lennep is the second largest municipality in Remscheid. Former member of the Hanseatic League and Prussian district town, Lennep was one of the most important cities in Bergisches Land. Since about 1230 Lennep has city rights. The Old Market and the beautiful cobblestone old town still bear witness to the history. Half-timbered houses show a beautiful cityscape here.
    I also find the X - ray Museum in the birthplace of Wilhelm Röntgen important.

    On the way from Wuppertal to the Balkantrasse in Lennep you should definitely take the time to explore the old town. Highly Recommended !
