In Mönchengladbach you will find both urban flair in the two city centers and rural charm in the surrounding area. It is for a reason that the largest city on the Niederrhein, with its beautiful parks and forests, is often called “city in the countryside”. There is always something going on in #MGActionTown.
Mönchengladbach used to be called “Manchester of Niederrhein” and nowadays you can still discover a lot about textile- and clothing technology. The college’s textile department and the textile academy with its spectacular textile façade enjoy national fame. At the MG Fashion school, upcoming designers create their collections and present them live on the catwalk of MG Fashion Day or at the “MG Zieht an – go textile” clothing fair.
You can shop to your heart’s content in the MINTO shopping center and in the city centers of Gladbach and Rheydt. Here you will find large fashion labels, but also small shops that focus on sustainability and fair-trade.
