Getting to know Münster
Explore the many-faceted city of Münster during an expert guided tour, a guided coach tour or on your own initiative.
There are many options for those who want to get a taste of Münster. Here is a selection:
The association "Stadt-Lupe" organises guided tours for individuals and groups. The two-hour tour of the Old Town (daily from 11 am plus 2 pm from May to October, advance booking recommended) is a good way to get to know the historic side of Münster. This tour is also offered in English. Alternative tour times or tours in other languages can be arranged on an individual basis. A simple telephone call will suffice, and online reservations are also possible. A selection of themed tours, ranging from the city's history to present day life in Münster, is also on offer.
