Surroundings

Remscheid is the smallest urban municipality in Nordrhein-Westfalen which is considered a major city. By incorporating the districts Lennep and Lüttringhausen, Remscheid had in 1929 more than 100.000 inhabitants and was after Wuppertal, Solingen and Leverkusen the forth biggest town in the Bergisch Land. Since the 1880s Remscheid is also known as “Sea Town on the Mountain”. This leads back to the worldwide commercial relations of the metal and tool industry to overseas companies. The municipal area comprises 74.52 square kilometers and consists of 4 districts: Alt-Remscheid, Lennep, Lüttringhausen and Remscheid-Süd.
