One of the main symbols of the city has always been the magnificent Cathedral Church of Saint Paul built in the 13th century. The place for its construction wasn't chosen by chance: it stands on the very spot where the first church was built in the 8th century by the founder of the city - Saint Liudger. Throughout its history, the cathedral was rebuilt and supplemented with new elements, and today its appearance combines features of the Romanesque, Gothic, and Baroque styles. The cathedral has a beautiful interior decoration, its walls keep elegant sculptures and elements of the woodwork, as well as original stained glass windows. The main decoration of the cathedral is it ancient astronomical clock installed in the 16th century.
Another bright historical symbol of the city is the Town Hall building known as the place of signing the Peace of Westphalia in 1648. The Town Hall building is still used for its intended purpose, it is open to the public several times a week. Everyone can appreciate the Town Hall's luxurious antiques as well as visit the very hall where the Peace of Westphalia was signed.
The most striking Gothic monument of Munster is the church of St. Lambert. If you look at its tower, you can see three small cells attached to it. In the 16th century, they were used for the execution of Anabaptists. The church is closely surrounded by other historical buildings, so it is not easy to find it for uninformed tourists.
