Mönchengladbach with its two town centres provides excellent shopping facilities. Visitors travel in from surrounding areas at weekends and on shopping Sundays specifically to enjoy a “shopping expedition” in the city centre.

Popular shopping streets are Hindenburgstraße in Mönchengladbach city centre and the town centre in the suburb of Mönchengladbach-Rheydt. Those who like to be trendy should make a detour to the “Gründerzeit” quarter or the small, up-market side streets such as Wallstraße or Friedrichstrasse. The 4-star MINTO shopping centre boasts a wide range of luxury brands. It features unusual architecture and has a modern atmosphere, and you can shop to your heart’s content before having a rest and a bite to eat in one of the many local coffee bars. There are further shopping facilities in the pedestrian zones of the city’s suburbs.
