First stop: the cosmopolitan city of Münster – a youthful, laid-back, student city with a history going back more than 1,200 years. This is where the Thirty Years’ War was brought to an end; today Münster is often called Germany’s ‘Most beautiful city’. In 2004 it was chosen as the “World’s Most Liveable City”! Even on a day trip, you’ll get an idea of the high quality of life Münster has to offer, with its enchanting Altstadt (Old Town), cathedral, Prinzipalmarkt marketplace and the Fürstbischöfliches Schloss (Prince Bishop’s Palace). It’s also one of Germany’s most bike-friendly cities, if you want to stop off and take a leisurely cycle around Münster’s centre.
