At the Goody Foody you can have a break of your shopping tour in Mönchengladbach because it's quite close to the main shopping street, the Hindenburgstraße. You can also buy food to take-away. I really love the freshly squeezed juices. They have very good foil-potatoes. Everything there tastes like it's very fresh (and I think it is :-)more
In an old framework house in the middle of the oldtown just opened this lounge. A China restaurant has been in the house before and the new owners kept as much as possible in the exotic Asian style. With a few changes they made a stylish place out of it. The fingerfood is wonderful, the atmosphere very nice and you also have the possiblitiy to eat...more
Not really a place for nightlife but also a place where you can go to in the evening is Das Café. It's, like you probably already guessed, a nice café where you can find people aged 15 to 35.I really love the milk coffee and the baguettes are wonderful. You can also choose other snacks or dishes, but remember that it's a café, so the food may not...more
Small club-lounge, hidden in an old, shabby house right in the middle of the Oldtown vis-á-vis to the small tower there. Only a "dicso-ball" and grave-candles show you Die Nacht.Good house-music, young people (ca. 20 to 30 years old). Don't go there before 1 a.m. Not too casual, but you if you come in casual clothes the bouncer wouldn't send you...more
Minimalistic Asian touched styled bar in the center of Mönchengladbach: the Moshi Bar. People come in this small bar to see and be seen - and beside this to drink the good cocktails and eat the great food. A nice place to start the evening or even for dinner. I like the sushis and the noodles (everything here is with a slight Asian touch of...more
Located close to the Oldtown the Mezcalito offers the best Strawberry-Margarita in MG (or even in Germany, I've been in many German cities but never drank Strawberry-Margarita like this)!! Nice Mexican styled bar. Many students go there to meet friends. So there are a lot of younger people age 16 to 30, the average is around 23. On Wednesday,...more

What to pay: I don't know…
at their website you can download the new catalogue.
In the stadium they sell various beers and soft drinks for 3 Euro each. They come in reusable plastic beakers and you pay a deposit of one Euro for each. They make a nice and light weight souvenir. I took one home to Switzerland.
Luggage and bags:
If you want to go out in Mönchengladbach you can wear casual clothes as well as more trendier clothes. But don't dress too posh - Mönchengladbach still is a province city, you can dress up more when you go to a club in Düsseldorf.
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. So don't forget your umbrella and at least one warm pullover and one pair of long trousers (or buy it in Germany in case you need it).
Try to visit the lovely little Monschau in the Eiffel area not far from Monchengladbach and near the Belgian border. It is really lovely - more photos in my travelogue.
We arrived here by special bus from the Mönchengladbach railway station. In your footy ticket the VRR transport region is included and therefore also the transport to the stadium. When you arrive by train in Mönchengladbach you exit the station to the back and not to the city side. There you will find all the busses lined up which bring you to the...more
If there's something the Mönchengladbacher take pride in it's the Borussia, their soccer team. Although it had the best times in the Seventies, the Mönchengladbacher are still loyal fans.The new Nordpark-Stadion is located close to the highway A 61 at Mönchengladbach. Good shoes if you just have a standing room and clothes for bad weather if you...more
If you would like to know where to go for a good party, a concert, an exhibition or what's played in the theatre of the city you are, buy the latest PRINZ. In this magazine you find nearly everything about many cities or areas in Germany. If you are in Mönchengladbach the Düsseldorf-issue would be most interesting for you, but don't forget that the most tips are located in Düsseldorf! Issues are also offerd for following cities/ ares: Berlin, Bremen, Cologne, Dresden, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Hannover, Munich, Nürnberg, Ruhrgebiet, Stuttgart
Cheaper (exactly for free) is the Mönchengladbacher Stadtmagazin. You get it in shops like the Mayerische Buchhandlung at the Theatergalerie or restaurants like the Sukhothai and the Café Trotzdem. Most of the tips are just for Mönchengladbach and Krefeld.
Fondest memory: Here's the link for the Düsseldorf issue of the PRINZ:
and here the one for the Stadtmagazin:http://www.stadtmagazin.de/
