Shortly before Solingen, the landscape in the vicinity of the Wupper already looks very mountainous. Quaint half-timbered houses line the way, so the Wipperkotten. But behind the black and white house by the river is much more: from the 1605 year, it served mainly as a workshop, more precisely as a grinding shop for cutlery such as knives and scissors. After several fires that have affected the Kotten, the "little house" (Middle Low German) was faithfully rebuilt. Today it serves as a museum, atelier and artist's club.

The Wipperkotten was mentioned at the beginning of the 17th century. It was rebuilt after the fires of 1783 and 1858, and has been a listed building since 1994. He is the last water-powered Schleifkotten on the Wupper, and the last Doppelkotten with two water wheels.
