One of the most unusual culture centers in the city is Museum Abteiberg. It is situated in a beautiful old building on the hill. It has been recently reconstructed and is open to visitors now.

During the excursion to the museum, you can also walk in the park where you can see the collection of contemporary sculptures.
In the city, there are several well-preserved religious constructions. The most beautiful church in the city is Mönchengladbacher Münster St. Vitus. At one time, there was a big monastery at the site of the old church. More than a thousand years ago, the city started to be formed around it. Only the church built in the 12th century has survived to the present day. The basilica is an impressive example of Roman architecture. Its architectural appearance is complemented by elegant Gothic elements. An important relic is kept in the basilica. Every year, thousands of pilgrims come here to worship it. The building also houses the 800-year-old piece of the cloth covering the table during the Lord’s Supper. The tablecloth is displayed for worshipers and admirers every seven years. It is usually stored in a closed golden box. The interior of the church lacks elegant decorative elements. It has remained unchanged since the construction. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

One of the main historical symbols of Monchengladbach is Schloss Rheydt. This old castle is the true epitome of Renaissance style. For several centuries, the castle had belonged to the family of rich barons. Its owners didn’t have enough money to maintain such a huge historic building. Over the last 100 years, the castle has changed many owners. In the late 20th century, it passed to the city authorities. The castle has been reconstructed and serves as an interesting history museum now. Here, you can see the collection of old furniture, pieces of art, local handicrafts, old weapons, and national costumes. During the warm season, historical festivals and fairs are often held in the territory of the castle.
