Fancy going shopping in Mönchengladbach? Or a stroll around? The city is regarded as the region’s shopping centre for over half a million people. Let yourself be seduced by a variety of shops and arcades, where an enjoyable shopping experience is guaranteed, whatever the weather.
Numerous cafes, bars and restaurants will then invite you to take a breather after your shopping spree.
Several shopping streets, some of which are traffic free, await shoppers both in Mönchengladbach itself and in Rheydt. Hindenburgstraße, Bismarckstraße and Friedrichstraße also offer specialist shops in addition to several depart-ment stores with their wide range of merchandise. The fashion sector, in par-ticular, is a Mönchengladbach location factor, as textile companies have been located in the city and the Lower Rhine for centuries and internationally renowned firms such as Gardeur and Van Laack are based in the city. In Rheydt, where the second centre for shopping is to be found, specialist shops and department stores dominate the scene, not only in the Hauptstraße and Stresemannstraße.
