There is always something to do in Utopiastadt. The historic railway station building is currently being renovated with a lot of voluntary help. Windows have to be sanded down, walls knocked down or plastered and floors laid.
And that's just what's happening in the station building. With an area of around 40,000 square metres, the Utopiastadt Campus offers space for all kinds of urban games. In addition to the big topic of bicycles (rental, repair, cargo bike and electric drive), this also includes our wonderful Café Hutmacher, a small coffee roastery, an open workshop for the neighbourhood, a small garden, lots of open space to create your own designs and even a real circus tent.
All of these things are run and maintained by volunteers. Our circus tent, for example, needs intensive care. Dismantling the poles, sanding down, mending the tarpaulin, repainting and polishing everything. Wouldn't that be something for you?
It never gets boring with us!
Come along and build Utopiastadt with us

If you don't feel like hanging out in our beer garden, the sandy area, the barbecue garden or at our concerts, there's plenty of variety nearby. In addition to the aforementioned bouldering hall (https://bouldercafe-wuppertal.de/), there is an outdoor pool within walking distance, which is also being renovated and renaturalised by local residents (https://freibad-mirke.de/).
Of course, you shouldn't miss the world-famous suspension railway in Wuppertal. (Life motto: Float through Wuppertal once in your life). And the Schwebodrom gives a great VR impression of the history of this unique means of transport (https://schwebodrom.com/de/). The Wuppertal Green Zoo is also always worth a visit, whatever your age.
We also lend out bicycles free of charge. As a group, you will also be provided with an electric cargo bike for shopping. The Nordbahntrasse runs right past our premises and is a straight cycle path without hills, on which no cars are allowed to drive. Ideal for learning to cycle.
It is also particularly worthwhile to simply take a stroll through the neighbourhood on foot, as most of the houses are still old buildings.
But be careful: Be prepared for the fact that every hill is followed by a new one.
You can also get to Cologne, Düsseldorf or Dortmund quickly by train for a day trip.

We give them the opportunity to be creative, act in solidarity, take responsibility for themselves, and discover their own true potential and strengths. Our principles: Ecological learning, voluntary contribution, self-organisation, social development, intercultural learning, gender equality, anti-racism/anti-discrimination and political education.
