Shopping and going out
Welcome to Münster’s nightlife!
Simultaneously old and young – it’s little wonder that contrast and surprises are simply an accepted part of life in Münster. This city offers the world’s largest collection of Picasso graphics behind the facade of a Westphalian aristocratic building, Baroque architectural jewels alongside contemporary architectural icons, today’s popular bars and cafes in an old harbour hall and traditional dark beer cuisine in Münster’s rustic traditional pub district.
For art and culture fans
Münster’s art and culture scene is diverse and vibrant: From the Theater Münster to the location theatre Freuynde und Gaesdte, the numerous exhibitions at the LWL-Museum for Art and Culture, at the Kunstmuseum Pablo Picasso Münster or in the art galleries. More information
