Sports in Münster
On the back of a horse …
Münsterland is an equestrian region and as its centre, Münster makes the hearts of horseriders leap with joy. Around 100 kilometres of riding trails entice the horse and rider into the countryside. Events of interest to the equine public are also staged here throughout the year.
Münster is home to numerous horse riding clubs and idyllically located equestrian farms which always welcome guests. Therefore, there is nothing to stop you from exploring Münster on the back of a horse.
Münster has 40 kilometres of riding trails, and the wide park landscape of the Münsterland starts where the city slowly comes to an end – an idyllic landscape which is made for horseback riding and trail rides.
Events of interest to the equine public are staged in Münster throughout the year: starting with the K+K Cup in January and continuing with the shows and exhibitions at the Westfälisches Pferdemuseum (Westphalian Horse Museum) at Münster Allwetterzoo (All-weather zoo), and the glamorous climax, the Winners´ Tournament, which takes place in front of Münster’s baroque city palace.
