Travel Tips for Münster
Münster’s university with about 30.000 students strongly influences the city’s atmosphere. The centre of the university is located west of the river Aa in the inner city, along Universitätsstraße (sic!). The Schloss is another important centre, and of course the huge hospitals and clinics further west.
Everything students need to know can be found in the university's website. 30.000 young adults in town mean a lively nightlife, pubs and shops that cater for young people, many cyclists in the streets…
Weihnachtsmärkte = Christmasmarkets
Like in many German towns, from the first "Advent"-weekend the cities are full of Christmas-spirit and on several places "Weihnachtsmärkte" give a great atmosphere. In Münster these markets are often spread along the crescent-street and offer various themes (lights, candles, food/drink, decorations etc.). Nice is that here the markets are not so massive as in some others German cities, but pictoresk and cosy small. From The Netherlands, busloads of Dutch are brought each year, to either joy and annoyance of our East-neighbors.
One of the largest moated castles in the Münsterland, built in the second half of the 17th century. The castle is open to the public (except for the winter months) - guided tours of the state rooms are possible. The castle has a hotel, a restaurant and a cafe, too.
Location: near Dorsten
On our walk to the Christmas markets and eventual brewery destination we passed many beautiful buildings that were painstakingly rebuilt after WWII destruction. Münster surely deserves more time than we were able to give it but it was nice to at least see it fleetingly on our beery tour of the city. The Prinzipalmarkt or main marketplace showcases the intricate facade of the 14th century Rathaus.

Münster's Town Hall dates from the fourteenth century. The building was begun around 1320, but has been added to and rearranged numerous times over the centuries.
In the Second World War the Town Hall was largely destroyed, but it was re-built during the 1950s and is still used for some of the city offices.
The square in front of the Town Hall is called Prinzipalmarkt and is mostly carfree (except for the occasional delivery van), so it can be used safely by pedestrians and cyclists.
