On the last day of my short but intense trip to Germany, I arrived in Wuppertal, to finally fulfill one of my childhood dreams: riding the city’s famous suspension monorail, called the Schwebebahn. I recently wrote about the Skytram suspension train at Düsseldorf’s airport, but Wuppertal’s is on a whole different level. The Schwebebahn is […]
