    The tunnel Dorp is part of the Nordbahntrasse in Wuppertal. The tunnel opened in 1879 and is 488 meters long. In the course of the northern railway line, some tunnels line up - an interesting experience with the bike!

    The longest Nordbahntrassen tunnel in the city area (Schee is longer). Climatically always an experience :-)

    The Dorp Tunnel is the second longest on the Nordbahntrasse after the Scheetunnel. Always provides a nice cool in hot temperatures. Attention, please be sure to turn on the lights, as there are sporadic police checks at the entrance or exit every now and then.

    Each of the NBT tunnels is a highlight, grotto atmosphere, coolness, moisture. A welcome refreshment at high temperatures. Illuminated relatively sparingly, speed down!

    The tunnels offer perfect protection in the event of bomb attacks.

    Dorp tunnelInfo • Routes • SightsAuthor: Wikipedia| | PublicData source: D-468Copyright: Creative Commons 3.0The Dorper Tunnel, also known as the Dorp Tunnel, is a 488 m long railway tunnel in the urban area of Wuppertal. It is located on the Düsseldorf-Derendorf-Dortmund Süd railway line, which was opened in 1879 and has since been closed, in the urban area called "Wuppertaler Nordbahn", between the Wuppertal-Dorp stop and the Ottenbrucher train station and is crossed by the 46 federal motorway.
    The tunnel is occasionally used in summer for screenings of movies. The tunnel is curved over the entire route. The tracks and signal systems have since been removed. The tunnel offers a very interesting backdrop for photographers. The tunnel has now been expanded as part of the northern railway line as a cycle and footpath and can be used day and night with LED lighting.
