Places of interest

Many visitors take a time-out to explore this delightful town at the foot of the Abteiberg hill at their own leisure. Its landmarks include the Rheydt Palace and the Minster of St. Vitus, a Romanesque basilica with a gothic chancel. Visitors seeking cultural distraction should spend some time in the stunning grounds of the Baroque Wickrath Palace. This wonderful pink building is set in the midst of 19 hectares of beautiful natural surroundings. The pentagonal landscaped gardens in the shape of a count's coronet are fully open to the public and are one of the Rhineland's cultural gems. At Moenchengladbach's 200,000 square meter "Stadion im Borussia Park Moenchengladbach" soccer fans can enjoy the excitement, experience the roar of thousands of spectators and meet like-minded supporters. The stadium is home to Borussia Moenchengladbach soccer club and has capacity for 55,000. Those wishing to learn more about the stadium can take an informative guided tour behind the scenes.

Art & culture

There are many works of art to be discovered in Moenchengladbach's squares, parks and hidden courtyards. Art lovers will be delighted by its treasure trove of all sculptural styles, ranging from stone carvings to mural reliefs, fountains and columns. The city's cultural attractions also include a number of significant architectural monuments, world-class museums, an acclaimed theater and a lively cabaret and performing arts scene.


In addition to all the fascinating places of interest as well as excellent shopping opportunities, more than half of the town is made up of charming parks and gardens. The citizens of Moenchengladbach also know how to have a good time and throw a party. A great example is the Carnival season which continues in Moenchengladbach long after festivities have drawn to a close in other cities. The Shrove Tuesday procession is one of the carnival highlights and definitely worth seeing.
