During our short visit (4 days) to some cities in Germany, one thing that really amazed me was the Schwebebahn in Wuppertal. In English I think it is called suspension train, but I called it hanging train. I enjoyed very much the rides that we had with the train while doing our sightseeing tour in the city. I have never seen before such kind of railway. It is an amazing innovation. It is running above the river and it is really swinging. One time I could not immediately get out of the train because it was swinging. Anyway, for those who have not seen the train, I have here some photographs for you.
