The “Landgasthaus Wipperaue” is located between Solingen and Cologne in the midst of an idyllic, blooming landscape on the banks of the river Wupper. This historic country inn, which can look back on a history dating back to 1832, provides the setting for our gala dinner.

Here traditional charm is combined with modernity and cozy comfort. In addition to a restaurant, the Wipperaue offers the Wupperterrace with its relaxed atmosphere and the wonderful view of the meadow landscape.





Peter and Margarete Evertz open a simple inn in the beautiful countryside at the river Wupper. The location soon becomes a much visited excursion destination.


From the middle of the 19th century, the number of associations in Germany increase.
Choirs and sports groups meet regularly in the Wipperaue.


The Wipperaue is growing.
The bar is doing so well that the operators can continue to invest: the new bandstand is the attraction in the 1920s.


The Wipperaue remains in the possession of the Evertz family until 1979. It is then operated by changing tenants. In the early 1980s, it had to be renovated after a fire.


Professor Dr. Wolfgang Thum acquires the Wipperaue. Initially, the catering business will remain leased. After a few years it becomes clear that a new sustainable concept is necessary.

2010 – 2020

Parts of the existing buildings are being completely refurbished and new areas are being added. After more than 150 years of eventful history, the new Wipperaue opens as a place of encounter, wellbeing and enjoyment.




The jewel of the Wipperaue is the historic Piano Hall Wipperaue. This ballroom was restored with great attention to detail. The wood-paneled ceiling, the high-quality furnishings, an extraordinary lighting concept and the large-format photo motif of three kingfishers give the room its special atmosphere.

It is predestined for events that are looking for an extraordinary setting.

In addition to the Piano Hall, you can enjoy the adjacent winter garden or – weather permitting – the outdoor area.
