Four public baths are made available to the Moenchengladbach citizens and their guests. And because the baths should attract many people with different interests the local public utility company NNV AG developed a concept by assigning each of them a clear profile: family and sports baths - Vitusbad, sports baths and spa resort – Pahlkebad, family baths and water park – Schlossbad Wickrath, outdoor water park with event catering – Freibad Volksgarten. An important part of this concept now became true with the opening of the Schlossbad Niederrhein (formerly Schlossbad Wickrath) early February 2008.

 

 

 

 

After about 30 years in use Schlossbad Wickrath has had its days for quite a while. It worked uneconomically with hopelessly out-dated technology. And therefore the conversion of the Wickrath bathtub into an attractive waterpark for old and young completed in summer 2007 can be best described as a new building. Only the 25 metre pool, part of the basement accomodating the technical devices and the supports of the roof construction were remainders from the old indoor swimming baths.
