If you come to Muenster, you have to visit the old town. Excellent places and buildings; too many restaurant and cafeterias.

Like most of the town it was damaged during WW2 and was not original. A nice place and many good stories around the area.

Before you visit, look up "Peace of Westfalia" on Wikipedia. If you don't know about the 30 Years War (and the 80 Years War between Spain and the Netherlands) none of this will make sense. Inside the Rathaus is the "The Hall of Peace" where part of the most important treaty of the 17th century was signed (the other part was in nearby Osnabrook). Fabulous woodcarving! I found the portraits of the participants (and the heavyweights behind them) on the walls fascinating. Note the child Louis XIV. Note the 2 Hapsburgs: Phillip IV of Spain and Ferdinand III of the Holy Roman Empire, both showing their big, Hapsburg jaws. Neat collection of double handed swords (used for chopping at massed pikes). Don't miss the mummified hand.
