Sightseeing Münster – a very special experience!
There is plenty to discover on a city tour in Münster. A tour of Münster shows you the most important sights and the most beautiful places in the city. On a classic Münster city tour, for example, you can visit the Peace Hall in the historic town hall. The name of the hall commemorates the peace negotiations held in Münster, which concluded with the Peace of Westphalia and ended the Thirty Years’ War in 1648 after five years of negotiations. You can find out more about this historic event, which made the town hall world-famous, on a tour of the city. After its destruction in the Second World War, the town hall was rebuilt true to the original and has been a World Heritage Site since 2015. Another highlight on your Münster sightseeing tour is the Lamberti Church. The market church with its striking Gothic-style tower overlooks Prinzipalmarkt, Münster’s parlor. On your city tour, you will find out what the three iron cages are all about and how they relate to the notorious Anabaptist movement of the 16th century. A tour through the picturesque town center is also worthwhile in the evening. Accompany the night watchman or other historical figures on a Night Watchman & Co. tour and enjoy the atmospheric atmosphere that prevails in the old town late at night.
The best tips for your city tour
The cathedral is also an integral part of your Münster city tour. The Romanesque-Gothic building from the 13th century marks the place where the city was once founded and has a very special highlight in store for you: The unique Astronomical Clock is waiting to be discovered by you in its choir gallery. The clock, built in 1542, is still a fascinating astronomical work of art today and has a few surprises in store for you! Domplatz, the place where the monk Liudger built a monastery in 793 for the purpose of missionizing the Saxons living in the area, is now transformed into a market square twice a week. The weekly market offers all kinds of regional and international delicacies: from fruit and vegetables, fish and meat to delicacies such as Dutch liquorice and pastries from traditional Münster bakeries – the weekly market is the place to be for gourmets and those with a sweet tooth!
Numerous cafés, restaurants and boutiques can be found around the cathedral square and along the Prinzipalmarkt, inviting you to take a shopping tour through Münster. The gabled houses on Prinzipalmarkt in particular provide a shopping experience in a wonderful ambience. If you would like to enjoy a city tour full of culinary highlights, we recommend the Münster culinary city tour, which offers regional and international specialties as well as sweet and savoury delicacies. Another tip for your city tour is to stop off at one of the quaint pubs that complete the charming character of the old town. Or would you prefer to experience the Westphalian-Mediterranean lifestyle? Then pay a visit to the harbor on your tour. The idyllic ambience of the harbor promenade is lined with restaurants and bars, inviting you to relax and unwind to your heart’s content. The harbor is also the venue for popular festivals and music festivals, which are extremely popular with young and old alike in Münster.
