Münster is inhabited by more than 267.000 people. It represents a flat green region with lots of beautiful little castles, ideal for cycling). If you enter the city by train and decide to stay there longer being fascinated by its admirable surroundings, you had better not do this as there are lots of thing not less interesting awaiting you if you proceed deeper into the city. One can never guess that the city faced severe bombings during WWII and was greatly destroyed as the city was almost completely reconstructed. The number of churches in the city is impressive and the most interesting of them is Dom with its treasury.
There are also interesting museums there and a city hall that may attract a visitor's attention. The Münster University is the third largest University in Germany with more than 40.000 students. The cultural life of the city is certainly determined by that number of student as there are lots of cafes and bars in the city. But if you happen to be in the city on Sunday you will be greatly surprised by that great change: shops are closed; streets are empty as students have either gone or been asleep and not a sound (except for the church bell) will be heard. The main part of places of interest is concentrated in the centre of the city with lots of shops being situated in-between them. You will certainly win if you decide to visit the city in December as there is a special Christmas market organized there in that month.
