The Bergisches Land is a low mountain range in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia, east of Rhine river, south of the Ruhr. The landscape has woods, meadows, rivers and creeks and contains over 20 artificial lakes.[1] Wuppertal is one of the biggest towns and is known as the region's capital, and the southern part nowadays has closer economic and socio-cultural ties to Cologne. Wuppertal and the neighbouring cities of Remscheid, Solingen form the Bergisches Städtedreieck.
