Münster's fantastic funfair on Schlossplatz
Three times a year, when Schlossplatz, the great open space backed by the baroque splendour of the former Palace of the ruling prince-bishops, is turned into a fantastic amusement park, it's "Send" time again in Münster. From nostalgic, old-style merry-go-rounds to the latest in high-tech fairground attractions, and with food stalls for every taste, plus the traditional crockery market, the biggest and oldest funfair in the Münsterland offers everything the heart of any visitor – from the youngest to the oldest – could desire.
