Schwebebahn


Do you remember my past post (http://wp.me/p16aNp-1I) I mentioned the Wuppertal Schwebebahn?
It’s a suspension railway, that hangs below it’s track. On its way through Wuppertal it’s following the river Wupper. It’s build back in 1901 by using the same technique used Gustave Eiffel for building the Eiffel Tower in the french capitol Paris.

Here I was at station “Werther Brücke”, one of the remaining historic stations. Currently the track is still under renovation and renewing.
