Bike Touring Highlight
As the largest project, the association is responsible for converting the route of the disused Wuppertaler Nordbahn - section of the Düsseldorf-Derendorf – Dortmund Süd section to a pedestrian and bicycle path. This includes the preservation of the listed art structures, including six tunnels and four stone viaducts that shape the cityscape.
The particular urban significance of the Nordbahntrasse lies in the fact that a continuous cycle path is being created for the first time in Wuppertal, which has so far been unsuitable for cyclists due to its narrow valley and steep mountains. Over 100,000 people live in the immediate catchment area of one kilometer on either side of the route. Numerous schools and public facilities are in the vicinity and can therefore be reached on a daily basis via a foot and bike path on the Nordbahntrasse.
