    What to see in Münster - Überwasserkirche

    by egonwegh Updated Sep 18, 2012
    M��nster, ��berwasserkirche

    The Überwasserkirche. This church was named the Überwasserkirche because it is located across the river Aa that separates this part of town from the town centre. The church was said to be across the water, or "über das Wasser".

    What to see in Münster - Town hall/Rathaus

    by egonwegh Updated Mar 13, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    M��nster, Rathaus

    Town hall or "Rathaus" with Friedenssaal, commemoration of the Treaty of Münster that put an end to the war between the Netherlands and Spain (1568-1648). Historical ground for us, Dutch, as this meant that the Netherlands became an independent nation.

    So much to do

    by deannatravel Written Jan 30, 2006
    Alstadt Munster

    This is our Sister City. We live in Fresno, California. Our visit to this wonderful city was great. There is so much to see. The city itself is beautiful and it is a wonder that it has been completely restored after being slmost destroyed in World War II. The St. Paulis Dome is beautiful, the tallest structure were the churches steeples, which were the only structure to survive the was, the shopping was upscale and streets are all clean. This was a perfect start to our tour of Germany.

    Beautiful Old Town

    Facades in Munster's Old Town

    Munster has a very beautiful old town. There's one street (Prinzipalmarkt) that features some 30 or 40 houses with beautiful facades - unfortunately, I'm not too much of an art historian, so I don't know the style they are built in. My travel guide says it's Gothic and Renassance. Anyway, it's a nice sight.

    Munster's Church over Water

    One of Munster's churches is called Überwasserkirche - in English Church over Water. Whether there is something like a church under water, I don't know. But the one over water is quite beautiful, located in the middle of a small square near the old town.

    Cathedral

    Lambertikirche, Munster

    You should visit the cathedral to see the astronomical clock - unfortunately I can't tell you more about it, other than its name is Lambertikirche (thanks dgeorge10!). There are so many attractive churches in Munster, that it is quite disorientating - I never knew where I was at any time, partly because I didn't have a map, and partly because I was concentrating so hard on getting my Arabic grammatically correct and trying to understand Yemeni dialect that I completely lost my bearings.

    The Zoo

    by IceBear7 Written Jun 9, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The zoo in Münster is huge, for sunny and rainy days (that's why it's called Allwetterzoo), the cages are big so you don't get the impression that animals are imprisoned.

    Highlights are the dolfins' and sea lions' show, feeding the elephants, the running snails, the dinosaurs, the penguins and giraffs.

    There also is a Horse Museum which is okay.

    (Pictures coming soon in a travelogue I hope)

    The Aasee

    by maykal Updated Aug 26, 2002

    The Aasee

    Take a pedalo out on the Aasee. You can hire them at the 'Yacht Club' (probably not Yacht Club at all, but I don't understand any German), prices depending on how many persons you are. They only allow six people on any pedalo, although, once out of sight of the boat house, we hit the bank and three Yemenis 'accidentally fell' onto the pedalo, increasing our capacity to nine!!! There are also rowing boats for hire, and make sure you watch out for the kamikaze local kids who take Daddy's yacht out for a spin unaccompanied.
    On the road away from town next to the lake are located the zoo and a waterpark. I didn't see these, only heard about them, so I've got no more info for you.

    The Rathaus

    Rathaus, Munster

    The Rathaus (I am assured this means Town Hall, not a holiday camp for rodents) stands out among the buildings of the old town. Apparently, there is an exhibition inside with photos of Munster during the war, but as neither I nor my guides understood German, I was quickly whisked off somewhere else on my whistle-stop tramp around the Altstadt.
    Don't you think that the ProTex van outside just adds to its beauty?!!!

    The Schloss and the Botanical Gardens

    by maykal Written Aug 26, 2002

    The Schloss, now Munster University

    The most impressive building in Munster is undoubtedly the Schloss (castle) which now serves as the administration offices for the University. It is almost too big to fit in a camera lens, but you can just about manage it if you risk being run over by standing in the nearby ringroad!
    Don't forget to venture behind the Schloss, or you will miss the botanical gardens and the park on the banks of the River Aa. My Yemeni friends were quite excited to find Coffee Arabica (from Yemen) in one of the hothouses, although there was no Qat to be found to everyone's disappointment!
    (For more on qat, please see myYemen page)

    M��nster, the Kiepenkerl statue

    The Kiepenkerl statue. The Kiepenkerl was a typical character of the Münsterland, a travelling salesman with his 'trusted old wooden stick and wearing a red scarf', according to the descriptions.

    See the Dom. Well, it is hardly possible to oversee this majestuous central point of the city dating back to the 13th century.
