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!!!

This is really a fun way to travel, you fly over the Wupper river and the cars on the high street, a little bit like a roller coaster at bends........

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.

Skulpturenpark

Reviewed By ventus_9 - Cape Town Central, South Africa

This being my fourth visit to Skulpturenpark I have now completed the four season - and each season was worth coming. Indeed the sculptures that are vastlly spread over this slope of the Wupper valley are permanent exhibits, but with the changing seasons, the different light conditions, the different weather conditions, the colour changes of the vegetation they do not only arouse different moods and feelings with the visitor but appear to change their character and significance and meaning with the change of the seasons. A two-hour walk through the sculpture park can be very strenous as you have to climb steep slopes at times but you can always expect a thrilling surprise behind the next bend or on the next elevation or in the exhibition hall (almost) at the foot of the hill.
If you need to rest and recover after your visit the Park-Cafe near the entrance offers delicious snacks and fine drinks. And if you are still fit, why not try a second tour - it's certainly worth it.

Botanischer Garten

Reviewed By Julian P - Wuppertal, Germany

As already mentioned its neither one of the largest nor one of the most different botanical Gardens in the country. But it is a very nice and cute one. Its located within a large park area named "Hardt" that you can reach by foot in just a couple of minutes. In there you have a great view over the central town and can totally enjoy the beautiful nature around you.

The museum has a nice collection of paintings, impressive for a regional museum. The ticket price however is high and you have to leave your bag in the reception.

Wuppertaler Buhnen

Reviewed By Julian P - Wuppertal, Germany

I visited the Tanztheater Pina Bausch several times - it totally worth it! Pina Bausch revolutionized the whole dancing culture in her lifetime and made this stage, this place one of the most famous and most attractive in the whole dancing world! Its a very modern, different and sometimes unusual kind of dancing and totally interesting to see, even more than once!
Also the opera of the town is an important piece of the local history, as well as the buildings besides. Don't miss it!
