Project Description

Rheydt Main Railway Station (Hauptbahnhof Rheydt)

In 2016, Mönchengladbach city administration purchased the main station building of Hauptbahnhof Rheydt, with a gross floor area of 4,000 to 5,000 m², from Deutsche Bahn: the objective was to redevelop the station building and its surroundings. The station is especially important as an entry point to the centre of Rheydt. As a key element in urban development plans, it is to revitalise the centre of Rheydt and to strengthen this district of the city.

The search for an urban development concept for the station, which remains in service, has started. The objective is to find a convincing, future-oriented solution in line with the mg+ Wachsende Stadt urban development strategy. One idea is a new police station on the site.
