Wuppertal, August 2013

Visit to the Wieden Family in Wuppertal. We do some sightseeing and visit Müngstener Brücke and Schloss Burg in Solingen, an ancient castle where knight plays take place.

The journey to Wuppertal takes me through some scenic areas in Germany. Starting with Harz Mountains, then going through Weserbergland, Sauerland and Bergisches Land.
