Nordpark can offer amazing views of Wuppertal - the thing is that it is a little away from the city, and from here you can see the unparalleled urban landscapes.

Of course, it is not surprising that there is a monument to the great native of the city (there are two of them, by the way). Here you can also find a monument to Otto von Bismarck. The rest of the sculptures are no less interesting, and it is a pleasure to meet them from time to time. You should try to find such sculptures as Bronzeelefant "Tuffi", Standbild "Mina Knallenfalls", Husch Husch Denkmal, Skulpturengruppe Schildkröten, Skulpturen "Wahrheit und Gerechtigkeit". Many of them were created by the best sculptors of their time. There are also memorials to tragic events - Mahnmal zum 50. Jahrestag der Barmer Theologischen Erklarung.
Wuppertal is an interesting city, so its museums are truly fascinating. First of all, it is worth noting the house of the great native of the city, which has been converted into a museum. Of course, this is all about Engels-Haus where you can see how the great philosopher lived with your own eyes. Art connoisseurs go to explore Von der Heydt-Museum, and those wishing to get acquainted with the region's traditional industry to Museum für Frühindustrialisierung, which is a manufactory of the early 20th century. Those enthusiastic about railways would be happy to visit Bergische Museumsbahnen, and to learn about one more industry of the city - weaving - you can go to Bandweberei & Museum Kafka.
Thinking about where to spend this night will not take long, as the city can offer facilities to everyone's liking. Thus, people who want to sit in a relaxed, casual atmosphere are recommended Hutmacher, fans of excellent cocktails will enjoy Zum Koehlerliesel, those who appreciate small but cozy bars will be interested in visiting Viertelbar. Vacationers who prefer to choose the best cocktails from a huge range of drinks will certainly appreciate Q Bar Libre. Another great place is Wirtschaftswunder. The atmosphere here is truly impressive, recalling the traditional Irish pub setting.
