The green side of Münster What would Münster be without its lush greenery? For one thing it provides our healthy city climate, long-term; but it also contributes to the well-being of our guests. For many guests, it’s important to have a holiday in a healthy climate – so why not travel here by train and explore Münster by bike? Also, many hotels have been awarded a label for the sustainable, environment-friendly way they run their business. If you want to take a little time out to relax between shopping, sightseeing and enjoying the culture, you’re sure to find a peaceful green oasis to unwind in. The Promenade Where once the city walls stood, the green belt of the Promenade (4.5 km) now encircles the Old Town. The Promenade – lined with lime trees and closed to cars – is an important route for anyone out and about on foot or by bike, at the same time offering green surroundings in the immediate vicinity of the city centre. Botanical Garden Around Aasse (lake) and the Zoo Very close to the Old Town is Aasee, inviting visitors to enjoy the greenery. A definite maritime flair can be enjoyed on the Aasee terraces. One highlight, especially for families, is of course the all-weather zoo – and right next door are the LWL Natural History Museum with its planetarium, and the Mühlenhof Open Air Museum. >> www.tourismus.muenster.de – Link: Münster is well worth seeing! Botanical Garden One special highlight in Münster’s parkland and garden landscape is the University Botanical Garden, which is over 200 years old and has a lot to offer from the world of plants – from the farm garden to the hot-house. There are also, on request, special guided tours by experts. >> www.uni-muenster.de/ Botanischer Garten The River Aa On the 2.3 kilometres that it flows through Münster’s city centre, the River Aa offers a variety of scenes: residential and academic; relaxation and trade.

But there are other things on offer for children too. For example, did you know that Felix the Rabbit, that chil dren all over the world dream of, comes from Münster? And something that will interest teenagers is the fact that Münster is also home to skater guru Titus Dittmann, who made skateboards famous in Germany and is still a trendsetter today.

Münster‘s places to go You’d certainly be missing out on something! Münster is a university town and it’s no coincidence that it’s famous for its night-life. Everyone can find something to suit their tastes here – from traditional Westphalian beer cuisine to the trendiest club. Kreativkai A visit to the Kreativkai, Münster’s place-to-go at the former harbour, is a must – and not only on warm summer evenings. Set in a combination of old harbour charm and exceptional new architecture, there is an exciting mix of art and culture, gastronomy and hip clubs waiting for visitors – all in stylish surroundings and right by the water. For some, it’s the perfect end to the day. For others, the beach with the palm trees is the starting point for an exciting night of clubbing. Hawerkamp If you don’t necessarily like things to be neat and tidy, take a look around this former industrial wasteland called “Hawerkamp”. Clubs, workshops, studios – here, between rusty railway tracks and concrete walls covered in graffiti, is where the alternative and hip-hop scenes have moved in. It is a place with cult status far beyond Münster, not least because of the annual Vainstream Rock Festival. Tips for the evening How about taking in a movie? The Cineplex has 9 screens, with all the current blockbusters. Lovers of art films will find an award-winning range in the Schlosstheater or the Programmkino Cinema. And from the hottest discos to live gigs by older heroes of the rock scene – there’s a lot on offer in the Jovel Music Hall. Or why not try the Hot Jazz Club? From Randy Brecker and Bill Evans to Brian Auger and John Lee Hooker, Jr. – they’ve all performed here. And Gleis 22 has repeatedly been voted Germany’s most popular club. For nightbirds There’s so much variety in Münster’s nightlife that there really is something for everyone: you can party and dance in the Kuhviertel Quarter and in the Old Town, drink a nice cold beer in the beer garden, eat excellent food and count the reflections of the stars in the water in a trendy restaurant down by the harbour or on the Aasee terraces. >> www.tourismus.muenster.de – Link: Shopping and Going OuT “Going out in Münster” Everything at a glance: a guide to going out and eating out in Münster, listing more than 700 places to go.

These show you some destinations well worth vis iting in the immediate surroundings of Münster. Just two examples: Rüschhaus Along with the Residence, St. Clemenskirche (church) or the Erbdrostenhof, this pretty manor house is one of the masterpieces which the Baroque architect J.C. Schlaun built in Münster. Once a place where the poet Annette von Droste-Hülshoff sought refuge and worked, the house is today a museum dedicated to the poet. The French Baroque garden is also well worth seeing, and is open to the public all the time. Burg Hülshoff This, Annette von Droste-Hülshoff‘s birthplace, is located a little farther out towards Baumberge. One of the sleepy moated castles so typical of the Münsterland, it has been in the family’s possession since the 15th century. Parts of the castle house a Droste Museum, and the wide open gardens contain a wildlife enclosure and a garden island inviting visitors to take a walk. Guests can relax in the café restaurant in the castle. Regional cycle routes: 100 castles and the Peace Route We’ll be happy to help you on your way, for example with our cycle maps: “Cycle Tours round Münster”, “The 100 Castles Route” or the “Ideas and Tips for Cycling Tours” set.

The “100 Castles Route” is the king of the cycle tours, linking up the palaces, stately homes and castles of the Münsterland. The overall route can easily be divided up into four smaller routes or into daily tours. And if you’d like to follow in the footsteps of the men who forged the Peace of Westphalia, the “Peace Route” connects the historic Town Halls in Münster and Osnabrück, where the peace treaties were signed.
