Münster is located in the heart of North Rhine-Westphalia, a beautiful area of Germany boasting a rich and undeniably fascinating history. A Münster city break takes in beautiful architecture which is one of the 14 Historic Highlights of Germany, making it a place not to be missed.

A popular University City, Münster is full of beautiful medieval sculptures and artwork. City breaks here are ideal for those looking for a lively atmosphere, overflowing with young people and a unique cycling culture. The Cathedral of Münster is built in 13th-century style with ornate features that include medieval sculptures and a stunning astronomical clock from 1540, making it a unique attraction.

The historic part of the city is also characterised by various baroque buildings designed by Johann Conrad, including the Stadtschloss Palace, the Rüschhaus, Erbdrostenhof Palace and the Church of St. Clement's. The many restaurants and delis dotted around the city are popular with locals who are always friendly and happy to share their knowledge of their majestic home.

During the winter months, five Christmas markets open their gates in Münster's Old Town. Wonderful aromas fill the air with many market traders selling traditional hot food and mulled wine. The Münster Christmas Market is a popular event with families and couples alike.

This youth-driven city, with some 55,000 university students, would not be complete without nightlife. The student quarter, Kurvietal, is filled with pubs, restaurants, a brewery, and of course a library. One noteworthy street, Kreuzstrasse, is the home of the oldest brewery in Münster, Pinkus Müller. Along this street, you will not find any homes but meeting places for university students to sit down and enjoy a beer. This is a tradition that goes back over the last few hundred years.

A more contemporary option for the evening would be to visit the formally known Old Harbour District. This Harbor of Creativity (Kreativki) is located at one end of the Aasee and is also representative of Münster's cultural and artistic investments.


Shopping is fun in the extensive pedestrian zones and the cosy side streets. A unique retail world opens up all around the medieval colonnades of the Prinzipalmarkt, where exclusive fashion brands, trendy boutiques, and unmistakable shops line the streets.

Muenster Arkaden

In close proximity to the old colonnades, the modern Münster Arkaden can be discovered, the novel and architecturally sophisticated shopping arcades in the heart of the city that let you enjoy a relaxed wander, even when it's raining.  Incidentally, a side trip from the Münster Arkaden to the Pablo Picasso Graphic Museum is a must. The LWL State Museum for Art and Cultural History, the Municipal Museum, and the Museum for Lacquer Art are all just a few steps away.

The Maxi Tower

The town that's home to Felix the bunny is also fun for children. There's the giant Maxi-Sand sandpit during the summer and, in the Maxi Tower, children may play in safety and with supervision while parents are strolling around the shops.
