The lively centre of Westphalia

Münster Prinzipalmarkt, copyright Presseamt Stadt Münster
Münster is the city of the "Peace of Westphalia", with a long tradition of European culture and learning. The city is bursting with life: fascinating museums, exciting events, modern architecture and contemporary sculptures set the tone. This is where the Treaty of Westphalia was signed, bringing an end to the Thirty Years War in 1648. Today, Münster is a modern university city with 55,000 students and the unofficial "bike capital" of Germany. This unique ambience is what makes a visit to this city an unforgettable experience.
