Münster is a city of surprises. It’s one of the most charming and beautiful cities in Germany, but it’s also a university town with a lively nightlife and a student population of over 40,000.
The old city centre is a pedestrian-friendly maze of narrow streets and squares, lined with half-timbered houses and dominated by the imposing Münster Cathedral. There are plenty of green spaces, too, including the lovely Aasee Lake. The city is also home to a large number of museums, including the world-famous Picasso Museum. When you’ve had your fill of sightseeing, there’s always a lively bar or café to relax in, or a concert or museum to take in.
