"Münster" Top 5 Page for this destination Münster by Kathrin_E

Münster Travel Guide: 307 reviews and 969 photos

Münster is known as

- one of Germany's most catholic cities

- the country's bicycle capital

- a lively young place due to 30,000 university students in town

- site of the Westphalian Peace Treaty that ended the 30 Year War, together with Osnabrück

- a city that was heavily destroyed by World War II bombs but rebuilt in a good-looking way as a transformation of historical structures into contemporary forms.

The result is an interesting mix of old and new, catholic conservatism and progressive young ideas, upscale patricians and vibrant alternative culture.

Explore, best by bike.

    Excellent updates, Kathrin. There's always something else to see in Münster, it seems. Time for another Boerne & Thiel film, I think ;-)

    Thank you for this very interesting page. We're just back from Münster, I'm sorry to say I missed the pig taking a shower.

    Very interesting updates here. Such a study trip seems to pay off, even if the weather didn't really co-operate, right?
