This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Mönchengladbach.
Mönchengladbach does not offer much for the regular traveler, as it does not have many tourist sights. There are a few -- the Mönchengladbach Minster, the Schloss Rheydt Museum, the Abteiberg Museum, the Museum im Wasserturm Rheindahlen, the Altes Zeughaus Museum, the Schloss Wickrath Museum, and the Bunter Garten (a nice, huge park with botanical garden).
You do have several options for Mönchengladbach hostels, some near the forest, where you can have a walk. The prices are normal for Germany.
If you love football, you can barely think of a better place than Mönchengladbach. Even if you are not a football fan, you should see a game of Borussia Mönchengladbach if you have the chance. Mönchengladbach has good train connections with other German cities, so you can go for a game if you are nearby. You might be able to see some of the best players in the world at the stadium in Mönchengladbach, which has atmosphere that can be compared to very few others -- it has more than fifty thousand seats and they are always full. And the city itself has population of only two hundred fifty thousand people! Football is religion in the city -- be very careful not to offend the local team.
