Tips

  • Marcel

    Located halfway between Cronenberg-Mitte and the district of Kohlfurt in the Kaltenbach Valley, the Manuelskotten is the only water-power-driven operation in Wuppertal. Even today big cutters for the food industry are cut here. The Manuelskotten can also be visited as a "living industrial monument".

    The Manuelskotten is an industrial-historical monument. Nestled in the valley of the Kaltenbach and the last with a water wheel operable plant of Wuppertal. Approximately Around 1850, the first mill was probably built.
    The Kotten is between April and October on the days of the Bergisches Museumsbahnen
    open from 10.30am to 5pm.

    Hikers can visit the Manuelskotten on its opening days during operation. A very interesting piece of industrial history.

    The Manuelskotten was acquired by its last owners, the Morsbach and Bergmann families, with funds from the North Rhine-Westphalia Foundation and through the commitment of the “Manuelskotten Förderverein”.

    "... The popular name" Manuelskotten ", instead of the actual official name" Kaltenbacher Kotten ", goes back to the former owner Emanuel Morsbach, who acquired the Kotten from his father-in-law in 1867. The company remained in the possession of the Morsbach family until it passed into the ownership of the city of Wuppertal in 1993 with funds from the North Rhine-Westphalia Foundation. Since then it has been run as a branch of the "Historical Center" in Wuppertal and is supported by the Manuelskotten Association. ... "
