Museums & Sightseeing

Over 1,000 years of history have left their imprint on Mönchengladbach – which is also known as “Vitusstadt” due to its patron saint, Saint Vitus. Since local government reorganisation in 1975 the formerly independent town of Rheydt and the parish of Wickrath (which was then part of Grevenbroich) have been part of the Mönchengladbach urban area and are symbolically united in the city’s coat of arms. The town centres of all three towns are still well-preserved, bustling communities.

With over 270,000 inhabitants Mönchengladbach is the largest city on the left bank of the Lower Rhine, and it is characterised above all by its diversity. Discover the most interesting sights in Mönchengladbach with our top sightseeing tips…
