Explore Wuppertal

Wuppertal, a city in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany was original named Barmen-Elberfeld but after 1930 it was changed to Wuppertal ('Wupper Valley'). Roughly 362,000 people call Wuppertal as home. Wuppertal is a major industrial hub where Aspirin, the most famous pain-killer was invented by Bayer. The city is also producing the most in-demand products like textiles, chemicals, medicine (Bayer), rubber, electric, vehicles and printing equipment.

Travellers will be awed by its thousands of national monument buildings, many of which dating back to the periods of Art Nouveau, classicism, and Bauhaus. A tour of the city takes you to its main sights and attractions which include Engels' house (Engelshaus), Wuppertal Zoo (the largest and prettiest zoos in Germany), and the Von der Heydt Museum, one Germany's most important museum displaying one of the first of Picasso's works.

The never-to-be-missed point in your itinerary should be the Schwebebahn Wuppertal monorail, one of the most unusual public transport systems in the world established in 1901. This inverted monorail had been used as background in a number of scenes in the movie Der Krieger und die Kaiserin (The Princess and the Warrior).

Like other German cities, Wuppertal boasts of a local beer exclusively brewed in the city and is best enjoyed at the Wuppertaler Brauhaus, originally a swimming pool but today is a busy and modern brewery located close to the center of the city. A trip to Wuppertal would not be complete without sipping this local brew.

Frequently asked questions

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation?
