Elberfeld station has always been considered Wuppertal’s most important station, at least from what I learned. They even changed the naming, more or less recently, to “Wuppertal central station”. Hence I was quite excited when I first heard about the city’s reconstructing that area. On location, I not only learned that (at least from what I saw) almost everything was under heavy reconstruction – except for the station.

Hopefully this would only mean they save the best for last. It is in any case overdue.
