This has to be one of the best Castles of the region. The access is not too hard, they have a lot of restaurants, big museum, awesome preservation and restoration. Amazing view. Not expensive. Loved it! Don't miss it!

Definitely reccomendable for everyone in the region! The bridge is an impressive piece of architechure and the highest train bridge in Germany. Also the Park area underneath the bridge is really nice for hiking, jogging or just to relax.

Zaubertheater Wiepen

Reviewed By Frank M

Jan Philip Wiepen ist einer von etwa 10 close-up-Zauberer weltweit. Er zaubert in seinem hübschen, kleinen Theater sozusagen mitten im Publikum. Die Location ist cool. Der Service war einwandfrei. Die Zaubershow über mehr als zwei Stunden (Pause nach 60 Minuten) ist sensationell. Die Art wie er das Publikum einbezieht, die Perfektion seiner Zauberkunst und der allgegenwärtige sympathische Humor sind einzigartig. Unsere 30 Gäste waren völlig begeistert. Herzlichen Dank!!!

Zum Dom

Reviewed By uicnc - Blieskastel, Germany

Leider habe ich keine Möglichkeit gefunden, dass diese angebliche Sehenswürdigkeit in die richtige Kategorie "Restaurant" gebracht hätte, nun denn ...
Sehr gutes Essen, freundlicher Service.
Auswahl der Speisen entspricht dem, was man in einem Brauhaus erwartet.
Ich könnte nicht sagen, dass das Becherhus (Brauhaus etwa 300 m weiter), besseres Essen anbieten (war ich auch schon öfter). Der Biertrinker trifft wohl eher die Wahl nach dem Bierangebot und isst dann.
Brauhaus zum Dom > Schüssel Alt
Becherhus > Zunft Kölsch

Zoo Wuppertal

Reviewed By Johnny19039 - Dusseldorf, Germany

After many decades I returned to Wuppertal Zoo and was rather disappointed. When I entered the location I noticed that the Restaurant "Zoo Terrassen" is still not in operation. The building looks rather dilapidated. The music pavilion is the first building you see, when you enter the zoo. OMG! Why don't they tear it down?
Too many of the enclosures don't show any animals, because they are under reconstruction, the wild vegetation hides them or they are no longer used.
Yes, it is a "green zoo", but I could as well take a walk in any forest area in the neighborhood. That would be much cheaper!
I liked the new zoo restaurant building "Okavango", but they don't offer any African food. At least it is not an expensive place and the staff are very friendly.
The new elephant enclosure can also be recommended.
I'm not somebody who criticizes locations for the sake of it. I know lots of zoos worldwide where I really like to go and where I went several times, e.g. Zoo Overloon (NL), Burgers Zoo Arnhem (NL), Zoom Erlebniswelt (D), Duisburg Zoo (D), Calgary Zoo (CDN), Toronto Zoo (CDN), Two Oceans Aquarium (ZA), World of Birds (ZA), Chester Zoo (GB), Blackpool Zoo (GB), Krefeld Zoo (D), Loro Parque Tenerife (E) .... I don't want to brag about all of the zoos I have visited in the recent years, but I want to point out that there has to be a lot to be done until a visit to this zoo in Wuppertal is really an enjoyable one.
The website of the zoo is not at all adapted to modern smartphones. This is definitely not acceptable.

Wusthof Outlet Store

Reviewed By DeKK5 - Solingen, Germany

I was always seeing products made in Solingen but the price was ridiculous. At the outlet store you find pretty much everything you might need in your kitchen and not only for reasonable prices. Keep in mind that you must have cash with. The shop is small and they don't take credit/debit cards. But i highly recommend it. :)
