Often overlooked by English-speaking tourists, Muenster is a small university city near the Dutch border. The Altstadt (old town) was rebuilt after WWII to resemble its medieval predecessor, and you'll find most museums and historic attractions are here. For trendy clubs and restaurants, head over to the Hafen ("harbor") district.

Wonderful market on Saturdays (and Wednesdays I believe). Ask for a choice of cheese offered by some stands for an amount of your choosing. Hopefully some delightful surprise is included.
Ecological displays and sweets fight for your interest. You can grab a bite from the stands as well.
An experience not to miss.

Good for a nice walk, to learn about the plants, to visit the green houses. Informative exhibits and most of the plants are labled with the Latin and German name as well as the places that they are to be found. We were here in April and the camilla were blooming but it would seem that something will always be in flower throughout most of the year. Very pleasant to walk around, wheelchair accessible, good for the kiddies, too.

Unplanned visit but we all enjoyed it, The building is fascinating in itself as it is part an old building and partly ultra-modern. The route through is well thought out and all enjoyable. Even the cafe was comfortable and pleasant: not too common in museums.

This lake has sailing boats skimming across it, bikes riding along its banks and lots of grass to sit on and enjoy the views. Fun for a quiet si and watch!

This 12th-century building is where the Westphalian Peace Treaty was ratified.
The Historical City Hall of Münster was one of the theatres of the negotiations of the Peace of Westphalia which concluded the Thirty Years' War in Europe and the Eighty Years' War between Spain and the Republic of the Seven United Netherlands. It was the site of the Peace of Münster of 1648.
It is One of my favourites places in Munster when I visit the city. You must see

The current St. Paul's Cathedral was constructed in gothic style in the 13th century and stands right in the heart of Münster.
The church was partly destroyed during WWII, rebuilt in the decade after the war and finally restored in the beginning of this century.
If you enter the Cathedral from the Domplatz, you'll first come into a huge entrance hall, called 'Paradise', with statues on each side of the entrance.
The Cathedral itself looks a bit 'grey', also because the floor and structure are made of the same stone.
Although several monumental sculptures have been remained, I guess that others were destroyed and not restored.
Entrance is free.

The approach to this church is impressive. the building is quite donate and gives the impression of something great. Unfortunately due to a great deal of damage the indie is quite austere and the windows are all rather plain. In comparison to toehr churches in Germany this one is a bit vanilla.

Visited with my family (2 adult couples). Overall I liked the Zoo; however I was upset when I noticed how little space two adult lionesses have. They kept walking around without possibility to walk even in a straight line.
I loved the orangutans, very funny to watch especially the baby orangutan plaiting with its mother.
The highlight was definitely feeding the elephants. I was not aware that you can do it so it was a great surprise.
Very rude man standing by the gait checking your tickets. Adult tickets are 18€ per person and when we asked the man where the zoo maps were, he very rudely answered that maps are available but you have to pay for them. For this price I expected maps to be free, considering we bought 4 adult tickets. Plus you must pay 3€ for parking, ridiculous!

A free museum with great cloakroom, souvenir shop, baby changing facilities etc etc.
Permanent exhibit consists of you walking through history seeing how the city has grown (you literally see miniature models of the city growing in size room to room).
Everything on the exhibits is in German, however, in each room there are laminated sheets with a bit of background on the room written in English, Russian or Polish.
There is always a changing temporary exhibition too so there is always something new to see.
The museum is pretty quiet and you do often find the staff walking closely around following you through, but its not as bad as some reviews suggest!
No pics allowed.
I really love it and my German is terrible! Would recommend a visit.

Very good exhibits and the shows in the Planetarium are great, but the staff are most unhelpful, to the point of rude and harraing. We were in a group and when entering the Planetarium, one person with a small handbag and one with a lage daypack. The person with the small handbag was not allowed in, as the bag was too big. There are lockers, but nowhere is there any note saying you are not allowed bags in the Planetarium. It appears to be up to the staff's discretion, who just pick the odd person out, clearly without any logic and in a manner that is most humiliating and hurtful.
On top of that, when trying to access the lockers, the staff at the desk had cordoned of the whole entrance area, as they obviously could not cope with the amount of visitors arriving. This effectively stopped us from accessing the lockers. When we asked the staff, how to get to the locker area, we were told we had to wait, therefor missing the Planetarium show.
