Travel Tips for Mönchengladbach
Lots of Shopping
There are plenty of shopping arcades for you to browse and parks to walk about in, ancient churches to explore and manor houses to visit. Here you will not find the usual congested roads and ugly industrial sites. A blend of city and countryside have been cleverly combined to make the city a pleasant place to walk about in. The city is very much a modern art city where you will come across many sculptures, wall reliefs, fountains and plastic art situated in all areas of the town. If you like classical music, then why not go along to the Kaiser Friedrich Halle, Thursdays at 8.00pm. There are 6 concerts in the programme, each season, from classical piano concertos, to string quartets.
The original name of the city was Gladbach, which formed grew up around a Benedictine abbey founded in 972 and dissolved in 1802.
To distinguish the town from another town of the same name (the present Bergisch-Gladbach) it took the name München-Gladbach in 1888. This spelling often misled people to think that Gladbach was a borough of Munich (München), and so the name was changed to Mönchen Gladbach in 1950 and Mönchengladbach in 1960.
