Looking back on more than 1200 years Münster is a place of history that can be discovered at every step.

For example, outside of the city museum you can see works of art from the international sculpture exhibition, which has been held regularly since 1977, throughout the city. In the Picasso MuseumMuseum, you can admire works by the world-famous artist and once a year (in January) the avant-garde of jazz meets at the International Jazz-Festival the Münsterland Hall.
As one of the largest university cities in Germany, Münster has a lively and diverse youth culture. For example, the harbour has become an artistic and culinary attraction in recent years. Or take a look at the ‘Hawerkamp’. This former industrial area is home to numerous ateliers and some of the city’s most fashionable discotheques and nightclubs.
