EEA-Verleihung Wuppertal is home to one of the most unusual sights in Germany – a monorail road. The construction of the road began in the end of the 19th century. Despite the fact that you can see such objects in numerous cities across the country, the local road is distinguished from them all thanks to a very special event. The grand opening of the road took place in June 1903, but it served the first passenger a little earlier. The passenger was German Kaiser Wilhelm II. The carriage, in which sat Wilhelm II, has survived till our days and is now considered a valuable museum piece. The age of the carriage is more than a hundred years, but it’s still open to the public and is often used in various celebrations.
Many foreign travelers enjoy making amazing banquets in the old carriage, and newlywed couples often order marriage ceremonies in it. The monorail is located approximately 10 meters above the ground, so any occasion organized in such unusual conditions will surely be an unforgettable one.
Wuppertal is a city with unique culture. An irresistible passion of local people to tango is one of its main features. Such a passion of local people may seem quite unusual to visitors.

Each Saturday Ada café organizes exciting tango parties, which have always attracted many visitors to the restaurant. Some people come to watch experienced dancers and get a couple of dancing lessons from professionals, and fro some people such tango evenings are a great way to show their talents.
