Borussia Mönchengladbach opens "Fohlenwelt" club museum

Borussia Mönchengladbach’s new interactive club museum opened to the public in 2019. The history of Borussia from 1900 to the present day can be experienced on 1,250 square metres.

The Foals’ World is the new interactive club museum at BORUSSIA-PARK. It was opened on 3 May 2019 with a festive event and prominent guests. Borussia was delighted to welcome, among others, Günter Netzer, Jupp Heynckes, Berti Vogts, Lothar Matthäus, Stefan Effenberg and Oliver Neuville.

The exhibition is divided into nine chronological sections. Exhibits and multimedia content tell the story of VfL’s development in a vivid and interactive way. In addition, there are 21 themed areas where visitors can deepen their knowledge of Borussia, relive legendary moments or create their own personal VfL moments. Another highlight is the tablet-based guide system, which is available to every visitor free of charge.

Multitouch scanner table leaves nothing to be desired

Garamantis was commissioned by the agency meap to create one of the museum’s central interactive stations: a 65-inch ultra-HD multitouch scanner table made of black acrylic stone with LED lighting. The table offers visitors to the club museum four different games in the Borussia universe:

  • 3D globe showing all of the club’s more than 1,000 fan clubs
  • multiplayer quiz about the club
  • Multi-user football games on the multi-touch interface
  • Dream Team – put together your personal dream team

By holding their Fohlenwelt tablet in front of the table’s scanner unit, visitors can automatically enter their high score and save their game results. The highlight of the multi-touch table is a fast-paced multiplayer Tip-Kick game for two to eight people, who can gather around the table for spontaneous matches.

Interactive club museum for nostalgics and thrill seekers

Hundreds of exhibits, pictures, large projections and films on more than 90 mostly interactive monitors bring Borussia’s triumphs and tragedies to life. There is also an area where special exhibitions are shown regularly.

Fohlenwelt is open every day from 10am to 6pm and on Sundays and public holidays from 10am to 4pm.
