Wuppertal offers many fine restaurants of many different styles. You can, of course, chow down on the local German fare, or branch out to a nearby Mediterranean country for a different flavor.
Either way, you’re sure to find tasty and delectable meals during your stay here. :-)
Westphalian cuisine — and Wuppertal’s — is well-known for its strong international flair, and less known for its own unique dishes (as Berlin with Currywurst or Bavaria with Weißwurst).
There is a wide variety of international foods that you will find here. However, be sure to try one traditional Westphalian dish, the Pfefferpotthast, a stew of pepper beef and onions.
In addition to the international style, you may be able to find some delicacies here from nearby Düsseldorf or Cologne, like Sauerbraten (pickled roast beef), Halver Hahn (dark rye bread served with cheese and mustard) or Himmel Un Ääd (blood sausage, onions and apple-mashed potatoes).
Landhaus Beek (In der Beek 163)
This Wuppertal restaurant has a friendly, relaxed atmosphere that is refreshing after a long day of sightseeing and shopping. At the Landhaus Beek, you can sample some traditional, warm and hearty German cuisine, like duck with red cabbage.
If you’re visiting during the summer months, be sure to take advantage of their lovely outdoor beer garden.
Restaurant El Greco (Hauptstraße 164)
The El Greco is a high-rated, popular Wuppertal eatery.
While you’ll find some Greek menu mainstays, there is an eclectic combination of Mediterranean styles, with influences from French and Italian cuisine. The appetizers are particularly popular with diners, so don’t miss out on these tasty treats.
Kornmühle (Warndtstraße 7)
This Wuppertal restaurant is a restored grain mill, which is the English translation of its name Kornmühle. Kornmühle is also situated close to the Schwebebahn, the city’s famous monorail.
