A sightseeing tour: trip in a historic bus

The rather antiquated seats in the bus dating from the 1970s are still comfortable. The knowledgeable city guides have a lot to tell you during the 90-minute trip, which starts from the theatre at 14.15 every Saturday from April to October and takes you along the valley and into the hills of Wuppertal. After this round trip you can visit the Engelshaus Museum and/or the Brauhaus (where beer is brewed).
