Christmas in Münster (Germany)

These are pictures made in Münster during christmas time last year. The town is situated around 60 kilometres of the dutch border. It is a nice town with beautiful galleries and cobbled streets. Not really famous, but if you are in the area, you must take a visit!

Excellent pictures there mate, thank you for sharing!

I love the altstadt sections of German cities and it appears that Münster has a particularly nice one! Love the Hansa architecture.

No I live close to Arnhem in the Netherlands.

I don't know if Münster was part of the Netherlands, but the treaty of Münster was signed there. It made an end of the 80 years of war between Spain and the Netherlands. The Netherlands became independent in 1648.

Very quaint, and that is a beautiful old Gothic church.

been to Münster (just for 2 days) and i wished i was there a bit longer.

it's a beautiful university town with plenty of young people, greenery and history. it used to be one of the hanseatic towns and to commemorate its role, one street was named Salzstraße (salt road). here, there are small round plaques placed on the street with the names of other hanseatic towns Münster traded back in those days.

great work BTW and i wanna go back there one day!
