Borussia-Park

Reviewed By GarikTA - Москва

Frankly speaking this new house for Bundesliga team Borussia is located quite far and is difficult to reach by public transport. The free shuttle bus is provide to and from the stadium but still... Otherwise we liked the venue especially the fan zone

Schloss Rheydt

Reviewed By Solodam J - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

There is a museum, a restaurant and a Castle with a lot of peafowls. The castle's wall has a lot of "heads" ornament on it, also with text. When you walk behind the castle, you will be in a woody area of the castle and you can take a nice walk. The restaurant has a very delicious hot choco, btw

Museum Abteiberg

Reviewed By BAB0821 - Chicago, Illinois

The building itself and the surrounding park is beautiful and very peaceful. The art is very good. Many pieces by Beuys, Polke, Richter and the Gruppe Zero is well represented, too. It's a jewel and not to be missed in this city.

St. Vitus Basilica

Reviewed By David K - Yeovil, United Kingdom

We visited Monchengladbach recently and the lovely Basilica of St Vitus overlooks Gero Park. It takes a bit of effort to climb the steps from the side facing the Hotel Leonardo but it is well worth the effort

Alter Markt

Reviewed By WaegemakersChin - The Netherlands

Alter Markt is the place to sit and chill for some drink. We walked pass this happening square on our way from Minto shopping centre to St Vith restaurant for our very first pork knuckle meal this time in Germany. There are plenty of restaurant and bar here. You can sit at the Terrace because you can catch the last hour of sun in dusk.

Reviewed By WaegemakersChin - The Netherlands

I am into architectural and found this building that has a special shape through TA. Since I was in the city so I drove here just to check it out. Unfortunately there isn't any information in English and it wasn't open. I don't read German so in the end it was just a special building in town that has some purpose in photography. But it displayed the year 1908-1909 so I guess it has at least 100 years of history behind.

Schloss Wickrath

Reviewed By Cint55 - Leusden, The Netherlands

I had a spare moment and took the chance to have a look at the Schloss. I knew there was a bar/restaurant so perhaps I could have lunch. But it was not the right time of the year. The bar was closed and the Schloss did not look inviting for guests. It has a nice park and must be wonderful on a summer day, especially if you like horses. But for now, it was just a nice view at a well-kept Schloss from the 19th century.

Tiergarten Monchengladbach

Reviewed By Travelling-Wolfgang - Koenigswinter, Germany

The little zoo is in Odenkirchen a which is in the Southern part of the city. They do not have a lot of parking, but there is some street parking and on week-ends you can use the grounds of a nearby school.
Entrance fee is low 3.50 Euro for adults, 0/1.50/2.50 for children depending on their age.
What you get for this is an animal park that is not large and a lot of animals are from the "domestic area" like rabbits, bovines, goats, wild sheep, donkeys, horses, guinea-pigs, geese etc but you can see a lot of different species of e.g. goats which I thought was interesting enough and they are good fun for the smaller kids. You can buy food for them and the animals appreciate the food and will take it from your hands (watch the food bags with those goats!).
There is a realatively new monkey house which is not large but good enough. Also quite a few birds but some are in really small cages. Same goes for the ozelots and lynx, tiny cages.
There is a children's playground, too. The target group for this zoo is families with smaller children and it does a very good job (for not much of an entrance fee) providing an interesting place for them to go and explore. They should give the cats to larger zoos, keeping them in so small cages is no fun to look at.

I came to this place especially for this museum and I am impressed. I simply love it. For entrance of 7 euro actually you get much more. I met the owner- quite nice and friendly man. Thank you.
