Münster

A 4 hour drive brought me to Münster on tuesday, considered the “cultural centre of 485px-Droste-Hülshoff_2Westphalia” 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).
