    Absolutely class couple of days out there! Made the mistake of getting a taxi to the ground from the square in Monchengladbach and ended up sitting in traffic whilst the shuttle busses from the square flew past us with the police escort!
    Decided to get the bus back though, could've turned a bit naughty when a driver refused to open the doors to let the fans in, and the bus next to him set off - almost trapping blues in front and to the side of it. Luckily no harm done!

    Thought it was a breeze from glad beach to ground.didnt see any police escorts.gladbach fans were either friendly or disinterested. I like German trips.treat them as you like to be treated and you can't fail to have a good time. The result was the icing on the cake.

    Yeah, no complaints from me, back in Düsseldorf by midnight and Old Town before 12.30. Didn't have any real problem going to the ground from Reydht either but I left about 7 so it was probably a bit quieter, but I was a bit pissed by then anyway.

    Which airport? We came back via Amsterdam , good night out last night but our flight home this morning has been cancelled due to fog. Now got a six hour wait for the next on direct to Manchester. Taken the gloss off an otherwise belting trip

    Arrived Tuesday into Dortmund. Quite night, which TBH was grateful knowing what would be drunk the following day. Train to Gladbach then headed straight to the Old Town with @squirtyflower . Sun was out and beer was available. Decided to delay checking in into the new digs for a few hours (5) - Beer a penty until they ran out at about 1600. Only Dark Beer available, still not a bad drop. Checked in to our overnight abode, then back to the square. Few more beers. Buses then turned up at 1930 to take us to the ground. Excellent service by the German authorities. Game came and went. Back on the coaches then back the Square in Gladbach. Ended up in one bar with a great mix of City and Gladbach fans. Songs were sung and more beer drunk showing football fans can mix despite the result. One German fan in particular was adopted by the City fans for being the double of Pab Zab! Great Day, Great night. Long day yesterday waiting to travel back. Arrived home, knackered, sore throat with great memories at 2230 last night

    Yes mate, a convoy of bendy buses and double deckers..

    I'm not sure I'd use the term "fan-zone", it was a couple of bars and some buses. If that was a fan-zone, City Square would be nominated for the 8th wonder of the world..

    Got back about midnight last night after an excellent 2 day trip with Bredbury stopping in Cologne - Wednesday afternoon in Monchengladbach in and around Rheiyt - thought it was going to be much busier but food/beer/company was excellent - in and out of ground with military precision on our own well stocked (cough) Belgian bus back to to Cologne - more beer after the game and then most of Thursday in Cologne down by the Rhine and in the Altmarkt soaking up sun and Kolsch beers - superbly executed trip went off without a single hitch... until the Manchester Airport Power Cut yesterday jammed the Arrivals Doors shut so took half an hour to get off the plane combined with the usual COMPLETE inability to process people at T3 Passport Control - total disgrace by the Airport as usual!
