A 4 hour drive brought me to Münster on tuesday, considered the “cultural centre of Westphalia” and Germany’s bicycle city. It has around 300 000 inhabitants and was the home city of the famous German poet Annette von Droste-Hülshoff (Der Knabe im Moor / The little Lad in the Fen).
More importantly it turned out there are tons of Kebeb shops offering a delicious choice of Falafel and Döner variations. Besides that, it’s pretty awesome to go shopping with a cute old town backround and lots of cozy bars and cafés. The mediaval town houses are unique for nothern germany (at least that’s what I think).
Münster also has a beautiful castle which – after a closer look – turned out to be part of their university.. I mean, really? They get to go to school in a castle? Check it out.. the picture on the right side is my former uni building!!!
All in all it’s not been a bad place to visit, if you ignore the huge amount of red lights and the hotel prices there.. I was rather shocked when I learned how much a room costs and after some research I ended up finding a cute old school private hotel room at some old folk’s house (that was cold but cheap).
