Amangst the population the day, a sense o belangin tae the region Bergisches Land is notable in the hilly northren pairt, but no hintle onymair in the auries near the Cologne Bicht, the Ruhr aurie or the ceety o Düsseldorf.

Economic upswing[eedit | eedit soorce]

The region became famous durin the period o its early industralisation in the 19t century. At that time Wupper Valley wis a historical Silicon Valley an its twin ceeties Barmen an Elberfeld the tradin- an industrial caipitals o Proushie. This economic upswing caused the expansion o the Ruhrgebiet an the foondation o socialism: Friedrich Engels wis born in Barmen tae a textile mill awner.[3]

Efter the industrial dounturn frae the 1960s on, the region lost importance but cooperations bi Bergisches Land entrepreneurs an politeecians are recently bringin back some regional awareness an economic pouer.[4]
