You will receive some important information about the historic milestones of Münster’s past. Münster Cathedral is situated on a small hill in the heart of the city. This cathedral belongs to the most magnificent churches in Münster and is the most important city landmark, besides the historical city hall. The central city square “Prinzipalmarkt” borders the cathedral and features a lot of scenic houses and archways. This is Münster’s traditional economic and political centre, with the historical city hall and the “Friedenssaal“, where the Peace of Westphalia was signed in 1648. Several exclusive boutiques and restaurants are based here. The “Prinzipalmarkt” is the core of Münster’s city life. It welcomes political guests and is the backdrop for lively city festivals. Visitors enjoy going for a walk, while shopping in luxurious boutiques and spending a great time. The church “Lamberti-Kirche” is situated at the northern end of the “Prinzipalmarkt”. It is the oldest late gothic church in Westphalia. Each night, except on Tuesdays, the “Türmerin” climbs the stairs of the church tower and blows her horn once every 30 minutes between 9 pm and midnight.

Duration: 1.5 hours

Meeting point: 3 pm in the inner courtyard of the city hall, „Platz des westfälischen Friedens” (Chillida-Bänke)
