City of Münster
Have you ever searched for the perfect symbiosis of a big capital city and a cute romantic village? Then you will find Münster is the answer to that request.
With its almost 300 000 inhabitants in the west of Germany, Münster belongs to the most beautiful cities in the country: Not only was the Prinzipalmarkt (the historical centre) voted the fourth beautiful place of the country, but in 2004 Münster also won the UNEP Live-Com-Award for the most liveable city worldwide. Criteria for the selection are the high quality of life, environmental aware living, structuring of the historical heritage and integrated future planning.
In history books, Münster is best known for being the site of negotiating and signing the Peace of Westphalia ending the Thirty Years’ War in 1648. This event is seen as the beginning of the modern international system of sovereign states. For visitors, another aspect might be even more remarkable: Münster is said to be the bicycle capital of Germany, with two to three bikes per capita. Due to the flat landscape and efficient structure, you can pass old buildings, beautiful parks or vibrant shopping streets within minutes. The ‘bicycle freeway’ called Promenade is reserved for bicycle traffic and pedestrians and thus the best way to get around town fast.
The town has a very active night life with over 1,000 bars and clubs and the city of the Westphalian Peace also has – of course – a very rich cultural life: There are several museums, theatres and cinemas. Instead of big industry, the city relies on administration and services and thus keeps its worthwhile charm. Enjoy the spirit of this unique town and let these various highlights enchant you during your stay!
