A city which wears its history with pride, Münster is fit to burst with historical sites and impressive buildings. Its baroque treasures are just one example of this and you’ll find plenty of them in Münster’s oldest merchant street (Salzstrasse). Areas of particular interest include the Erbdrostenhof Palace, Dominican Church, and the Church of St. Clement’s, which also has a stunning baroque garden for visitors to explore.
Outside of this area and you’ll find numerous other historical attractions worth a visit. The Cathedral of St. Paul’s is one of the city’s mightiest sights and contains the stunning Westphalian State Museum of Art and Art History as well as a full treasury. Part of the city’s ‘old town’, the Cathedral of St. Paul’s is a magnificent place to visit and surrounded by other key attractions. The Kiepenkerl and Kuhviertel districts of the old town are two of the most fascinating; overflowing with places to visit. Particular recommendations include the Church across the Water, which is considered one of the most historical parts of the whole city.
With such an extensive number of historical sites and stunning buildings, it is hardly surprising that Münster is considered one of Germany’s most beautiful cities – making it ideal for photography enthusiasts looking for a new venue to practice their skills. Those interested in other art forms should pay a visit to the city’s Picasso Museum – housed in the Druffel’schen Hof in Münster’s Rothenburg.
More than just a historical playground, Münster is also a thriving city where entertainment and culture are concerned. Mixing the old with the new perfectly, it is the perfect choice for travellers seeking to combine historical exploration with an authentic German cultural experience and dynamic nightlife. For the best night of your lives, head to the Kreativkai waterfront, where you’ll find the city’s best bars and hottest clubs sat among the city docks. The stylish riverside setting gives the area’s trendy clubs a new edge and the unique mix of contemporary buildings and old docklands makes for a fantastic holiday experience.
Münster isn’t just one of Germany’s entertainment capitals though – it’s also a thriving haven for art lovers. Kreativkai in particular is as well known for its artistic delights as it is for its evening entertainment. The AZKM was opened here in 2004 and is the city’s exhibition hall for contemporary art; showcasing artwork from those of both national and international repute. For those who want to take in all of the beautiful sights and sounds of the city, cycling is the recommended mode of travel. The city’s bike station found at the central train station is actually the largest in the country, accommodating 3,500 bicycles, and it is estimated that as many as 100,000 people cycle their way round the city each and every day with even the local police force embracing the trend!
