    From Cologne, Essen or Düsseldorf you can quickly reach Wuppertal by train and thus on the edge of the Bergisches Land, where the finest gravel is already waiting for you. This tour starts at the “Zoologischer Garten” train station and takes you up and down around Remscheid. "Exotic" highlights are included as well as impressive buildings and wonderful valleys.You don't just start at the stop of the same name, you drive right through the middle of the Wuppertal Zoo: The so-called "Samba race" leads over the bridge of a former railway line, from which you can look directly into the animal enclosures. If you stop for a moment, there is a high probability that you will spot a tiger. Then it's relatively relaxed, but steadily uphill over the route up to Wuppertal Cronenberg.When you arrive at the end of the Samba Race, a great mix of trails and paths awaits you, which will lead you to the valley of the Wupper, where you can marvel at an architectural highlight. The Müngsten Bridge from the late 19th century is Germany's highest railway bridge and is still regularly used by the S7, which commutes between Wuppertal and Solingen. You should really stop here and take a look back at the imposing structure.The route now leads over winding trails into the Hammertal and from there to the Eschbachtalsperre. Past the Remscheid districts of Lennep and Lüttringhausen and through the beautiful Zillertal you now make your way back to the tour, which ends in the Samba terrace in Cronenberg. From now on you roll back to the start in Wuppertal in a relaxed manner over fine gravel.The perfect bike for this tour:
