Neumünster is a small but lively city in the north of Germany, just a stone’s throw from the Danish border. It’s known for its annual Christmas market, one of the largest in the country, and for its lively nightlife, with a good selection of bars and clubs. The city centre is compact and easy to explore on foot, and is home to a mix of old and new architecture, as well as a lively cultural scene. There’s a good selection of restaurants and cafes, and a few green spaces for a break from the city bustle. Neumünster is a great base for exploring the surrounding area, including the picturesque towns of Sylt and Eiderstedt and the stunning Schleswig-Holstein countryside.
