High-rise estate on Eckbusch

The residential area is bounded in the west by the city limits of Wülfrath , in the northeast by Nevigeser Straße (Landesstraße 427), in the southeast by In den Birken and in the south by Steinberger Bach . In addition to the city of Wülfrath, the residential quarters Siebeneick , Nevigeser Strasse , Beek , Varresbeck and Schöller-Dornap surround the Eckbusch residential quarter in a clockwise direction . The flowing waters all drain into the river system of the Düssel .

The residential development of the predominantly agriculturally used residential area is concentrated in the area around the street Am Eckbusch , where, in addition to single-family houses, multi-storey apartment buildings have also been built. These high-rise buildings, erected between 1960 and 1980, are among the tallest residential buildings in the city of Wuppertal and are easily recognizable as landmarks from the area.

The Bayer HealthCare , a subgroup of Bayer AG , maintains an extensive research center in the residential district. The community elementary school Birkenhöhe is on the street Birkenhöhe.

Eckbusch outdoor pool

In its history, the outdoor swimming pool has been threatened with closure several times, which was averted after public protests. On March 22, 1991, a support association was founded from the citizens' initiative . With the help of numerous volunteers, it was possible to reduce operating costs and thus prevent the outdoor pool from being closed. Today the Friends of the Eckbusch swimming pool has around 350 members.

Theater troupe Eckbusch

The Theater Truppe Eckbusch (TTE) was created in 1993 from parents of former pupils from the Birkenhöhe elementary school. There the first stage experience was gained in the performances of fairy tales and a comedy. In order to be able to continue to play theater even after the pupils had left elementary school, the group of the Protestant parish in the community center "Am Eckbusch" joined. In 2003 the theater group was registered as a registered association in the association register. By 2019, more than 30,000 visitors came to 25 staged comedies. The game is played in the Sonnborn community center and in the dye works in Oberbarmen. The proceeds from the performances are passed on almost exclusively as donations after deducting the expenses.
