School trip to Münster
Friendly cycling metropolis

In 1648, Westphalian history was written in Münster; today, cycling "investigators" follow key trails through the old town past the historic arcades and gabled houses of Prinzipalmarkt and the Gothic town hall to the venerable St. Paul's Cathedral. Exciting crime scenes await! The University is housed in the baroque palace, the city harbour is a hip hotspot, museums display art from the Middle Ages to modern times, and others are dedicated to natural history, the stars or exclusively to Pablo Picasso. Explore the leisure paradise of Aasee and all-weather zoo with a solar-powered boat, or enjoy the natural beauty of Münsterland with a leisurely canoe trip on the Werse.

The Münstercard grants free admission to sights and museums and free bicycle hire. We will be happy to advise you.
