General Information

Münster is a convention city in the German federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia with European tradition - envoys from Austria, France, Sweden, the Netherlands and Germany gathered there as early as 1648. In Münster City Hall they officially sealed the end of the Thirty Years War with the Treaty of Westphalia.

Historical gabled buildings, baroque treasures, lots of green spaces and delightful surroundings all conspire to make visitors to Münster loath to say farewell. - 200 years of University history, bikes, and a pulsating student community lend one of the largest German University Cities charm and character.
