Rhine-Ruhr

Rhine-Ruhr

The unique hanging monorail in the city of Wuppertal was opened in 1901 and runs above the Wupper river. Some old stations have been carefully restored and contrast in a nice way with rebuilt, architecturally interesting stations of the 1990's.

Rhine-Ruhr area is an agglomeration of about 30 cities in western Germany with some 20 metro-tram lines and 9 S-Bahn lines [jochen-schoenfisch.de].
