Liedberg is a small part of Korschenbroich. It has a center just with old rhinish Framework houses - really a nice place. Beside this there is a small castle which unfortunately can't be visited.
And there is also a small hill in which are old caverns where the people carried off sandstone in early days. Over 50(?) years ago a few boys died there as they played there. A memorial tablet still reminds the people to that accident.
A very famous restaurant in Korschenbroich where many locals go for a drink with friends or to eat "gutbürgerlich", which means simple, German food. The Schnitzels are huge, the mussels (only in autumn and winter) are great.
Favorite Dish: I love muscles provencal and of course "Muscheln Rheinische Art", a local mussel dish.
Good Chinese food. People also come from Mönchengladbach or other cities to eat here. For my taste they put too less salt on the dishes but it's better this way than the opposite ;-)
Favorite Dish: I know it's stupid but I think I like everything the same.
If you like Greek food the Poseidon in definively a place to go. But attention: Probably the food is too fat if you're not used to eat fat food!
The restaurant is very nice, most times the service is friendly ;-) and it's a good idea to book seats.
Favorite Dish: I love the starter plate. It's also possible to get asmall one which is not on the card, just ask for it. Also Kritaraki, a dish of small noodles looking like rice and tasting differnet than normal pasta, with mince meat and a good tomato sauce is one of my favourite dishes there - and it's not as fatty as other things there. Prices are average between € 8 and € 15.
The biggest event is "Unges Pengste" a kind of fair on Whitsuntide-weekend in the main part of Korschenbroich. It starts on Saturday and lasts until Tuesday. From Saturday to Wednesday every evening there is party with live bands in a huge tent on the Matthias-Hoeren-Platz close to the center of main Korschenbroich. And in the daytime from Saturday to Tuesday there are several processions of the "riflemen"-groups of the town. On Monday and Wednesday evening the two "riflemen-kings" (Schützenkönig) and their groups go to the tent with their wifes in a procession, the women are wearing evening dresses and people are standing along the street watching them. Sounds crazy, hmm? :-)

Miscellaneous: The German weather is always good for surprises. It can be very cold and rainy in the summertime but it's also possible that you can wear t-shirt and shorts in April or May.

Close to Korschenbroich you find Allrounder Winter World in Neuss. It is Europe’s largest and Germany’s first indoor winter sports area. The slope is 300 m long and 60 m wide.
One hour costs € 15, but from 8 to 12 p.m. you get four hours entrance for € 20 altogether. You also have to pay a collateral fee of € 7 for the entrance card.

It's okay if you won't get out of training but nothing is better than skiing on a glacier slope ;-)
Equipment: You can borrow ski (€ 6), snowboards (€ 6), shoes (€ 4), trousers (€ 7) and jackets (€ 7) for a fee. So you don't need to bring your own equipment. But the snowboards are not that good nevertheless I would give you the advice not to bring your own because the slope sometimes (especially in the afternoon and evening) is very frosted and you can demolish your board.
