if you come in summer (which can in fact be quite nice in Münster!) then check out the Channel, it's a nice place for sunbathing, swimming (strictly forbidden, but who cares..., barbecues and partying.
If you're not into hanging around on a blanket, then you might want to have a nice icecold Radler on the lovely terrace of the 'Luf', overlooking the harbour. Especially at sunset it's sooo romantic!
Münster - a picture of the Überwasserkirche, across the river Aa, as seen from the Domplatz. We were here for our wedding anniversary - 12 1/2 years, to be precise! - from 7 to 10 March 2007. I really must try and find out whether 12 1/2 years is celebrated elsewhere in the world besides the Netherlands...
We toured the countryside on foot at Dörenthe south of Ibbenbüren, on a rented bike around Tilbeck and Havixbeck west of Münster, and we went to Castle Nordkirchen by car.

Saturday Market in Munster
I was amazed at the beautiful fruits, vegetables and flowers that filled the main square on a rainy Saturday morning. Because I was flying home, my only purchases were gifts for my hosts. But, I found myself wishing I was there long enough to try some of the beautiful white asparagus piled high in the stalls, or could take home some of the local honey for my tea.
We'd picked and eaten green gooseberries when I was young, but I never thought they were appreciated as a culinary staple. Here, I saw both green and ripe gooseberries and even sampled them in a wedding cake. It was one of the most delicious things I've ever eaten.
Perhaps only a VTer would look at this stack of veggies and be unable to resist a picture. I thought they were incredibly beautiful.
This purveyor of olives and other Mediterranean staples was one of the most popular booths at the market.
