The most popular boutiques and shopping centers are located in the Prinzipalmarkt street. This is the final destination for those hunting some memorable gifts and souvenirs. Shop-a-holics are recommended to visit Muenster during the Christmas fests as during this period the shops and stores of the city present scale sales. The city also invites its guests to visit numerous festive open markets.
The city offers a great variety of attractive restaurants and pubs. Prudent tourists should give preference to the remote from the city center eating establishments as in this case one will find the most attractive pricing.
Choosing a restaurant, tourists should keep tracking of the eating preferences of local people. If an eating house is avoided by local folks then the restaurant has gained bad repute or features rather high price tags. Tips are a must in all gastronomy establishments of the city. The amount of tips depends on the level of the establishment and lies within 5 to 15% of the total sum of the bill.
Muenster is considered to be a rather safe and quiet city. Its central streets are safe for tourists even late at night meanwhile the remote areas of the city should not be visited by the tourists alone. These areas should be visited only accompanied with a guide.
One should not keep valuables, precious things and large amounts of cash by oneself unless necessary. Upscale large restaurants, shopping centers and supermarkets accept international credit cards meanwhile cash will be in use at the markets and private shops and boutiques.
