Wuppertal / Location & infrastructure

Location & Infrastructure

An important plus for the business location of Wuppertal is its exposed location. Our city is located at the point where the Ruhr district and the Rhineland meet and has an ideal infrastructure with outstanding transport connections.

The suspension railway is a popular means of transportation within the city. To the outside, connections by highways, trains and the proximity to international airports are ideal.

Wuppertal is the metropolis and part of the "Bergisches Land" economic region and at the same time the hub of the Rhine-Ruhr conurbation. The city is centrally located in the economic area of North Rhine-Westphalia and offers optimal transport links in all directions.

The big cities of North Rhine-Westphalia form a ring around Wuppertal and can be reached by car within a radius of just 30 minutes. This is made possible by the 13 inner-city junctions with direct connections to the A1, A3, A43, A46 and A535 motorways.


All major cities in North Rhine-Westphalia can be reached from Wuppertal within 30 minutes.

In addition, numerous ICE direct connections throughout Germany perfectly integrate Wuppertal into the long-distance network of Deutsche Bahn. At the same time, the city has a 24-hour container terminal that provides direct access to rail freight.
