About Muenster/Osnabrueck (Münster Osnabrück Intl.)

Located in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, Münster is a wonderful city known for its vibrant city life and historic squares. The city’s name is derived from the word for monastery because of its magnificent churches and monasteries located within the city.

Throughout history the city was at the center of major trade routes and was one of the most advanced commercial centers of the region, especially thanks to an agreement with England. Today the city has shifted more towards tourism. Münster is considered the historic and cultural center of Westphalia. Places where famous poet Annette von Droste-Hülshoff lived are among the most visited parts of the city. Other important venues that have wide and varied collections are the Pablo Picasso Museum of Graphic Art, Westphalian State Museum of Art and Cultural History, the Münster Archaeological Museum, which has one of the richest archaeological collections in the region, and St. Paul’s Cathedral.

The Botanischer Garten Münster has a rich variety of interesting plants and is a great option for families with children. Another alternative for an enjoyable family outing is the zoo, which is home to many different species from parrots to zebras. The city is ideal to visit year-round but if you want to come when the weather is a bit warmer then we recommend traveling during the spring or summer. The rest of the year is cold and winters are usually snowy, which makes the city and its surroundings harder to explore.
