Life and shopping doesn't only take place in the center of Geilenkirchen. Living in the affiliated villages has a special charm and is attractive for citizens, who prefer the more quiet country life. Currently, the villages still offer primary schools, restaurants, cafes, bakers, butchers, florists, farm shops and PostShops. Lindern also has a real supermarket!
