The Abteiberg is a hill next to the city centre of Mönchengladbach, Germany, which received its name when the Münster St. Vitus was built on top. Visiting the Abteiberg can also mean to visit the Städtisches Museum Abteiberg not far away from the church – which I recommend. It is a museum with interesting modern architecture and a lot of modern art within. It was founded somewhen between 1901 and 1904, the current building is in use since 1982. It is one of the most important museums for contemporary in Germany and has a focus on works of the 20th and 21st century.

Within you can see a lot of works by Joseph Beuys, Sigmar Polke, Gerhard Richter and Andy Warhol. I liked the main works belonging to expressionism, constructivism and dadaism but also the pop art works shown here. The museum also has a nice garden for sculptures – but as already said: even the architecture should already convince you to visit this place.
