What makes
Odenkirchen so beautiful

Odenkirchen in the South of Mönchengladbach is divided into the districts of Odenkirchen-Mitte, Odenkirchen-West and Sasserath and consists of very heterogeneous areas. Town houses from the late 19th century can still be found in the townscape today. Crossed by the Niersgrünzug and various parks, Odenkirchen offers many idyllic places to enjoy nature, especially the Beller Park and the Kreuzweiher are a popular green oasis. In Beller Park you can not only enjoy nature, but also play minigolf. Wetschewell is also in the immediate surroundings of the Wetscheweller Bruch, a nature reserve and one of the most valuable nature reserves of the Niersaue in Mönchengladbach. Not far away is the Kamphausener Höhe, where on a clear day you can enjoy a wonderful view over the whole city. An absolute attraction for the public is the Odenkirchen Zoo, which welcomes 200,000 visitors a year. Around 80 different animal species can be found here on 4.3 hectares. Especially worth seeing is the castle tower in Odenkirchen, dating from 1734, which originates from a former four-winged castle complex.

 

Tierpark Mönchengladbach

The district centre is located around Martin-Luther-Platz, near the Odenkirchen Protestant Church, where the weekly market is also held twice a week. The small shops on the Burgfreiheit invite you to go shopping. Here, many boutiques with clothes, shoes, fashion accessories and gift articles can be found. For sports lover, the sports field Odenkirchen Süd with its many fields offers optimal conditions for small groups.
Incidentally, on the edge of Güdderath there is also a bunker that is used as a home and atelier exhibiting works of art on a total area of 740 square metres – unique in Germany.
