Sculpture Mile – The tour
If you walk through Mönchengladbach you will come across a variety of art works in public squares, in parks, outside buildings, and in hidden inner courtyards. There are no fewer than 50 sculptures along the 5.7 km sculpture trail which includes the sculpture garden at Abteiberg Museum as well as existing sculptures.
The ‘art mile’ runs from the Geroweiher lake over the Abteiberg to the Bunter Garten and then back along Bettrather Straße, Sandradstraße and Alter Markt to the Geropark.
The sculpture mile starts in the sculpture garden. Access: via a stairway from Weiherstraße, from Spatzenberg (steep slope), from Abteistraße via a stairway; please note that there are also steps in the Abteigarten (Abbey Garden).
Parking: good places to park: Geroweiher / Weiherstraße car park
