The Wupper Trail takes us mostly along the course of the river Wupper. We experience nature and culture of a special kind.

Together approx. 125 km long, the trail ümainly follows the course of the river and only leaves the Wupper in the urban areas of Hückeswagen, Wuppertal and Leichlingen in order to focus on the experience of nature. This description will accompany you from the sources in Börlinghausen to the Beyenburg reservoir in Wuppertal. Along the way you will encounter historical testimonies and buildings, different landscapes as well as many animals and plants. It is above all this experience of nature that has encouraged us to distinguish the Wupper Trail. The hikers experience a diverse nature. This description is intended to help you understand it. Those who understand the environment, flora and fauna, also recognise their value. The resource water and thus the rivers, streams and dams in the Wupper river basin must also be protected as a basis of life for future generations and preserved and developed as a valuable habitat for animals and plants.
