Holidays in Münster Castle

Holiday Travel Guide
Münster Castle

The baroque façade and interior of this iconic castle offer an ideal counterpart to the charming café and tropical greenhouses of the botanical gardens.

Elaborate sculptures, statues and landscaped gardens create a majestic setting for the Münster Castle. It was built as the prince bishop’s residence and is today an important part of the city’s university. Be sure to take a camera with you when you visit Münster Castle as the red-and-white stripes adorning the majestic frontage, as well as the green bell tower, make for striking photos.

Walk or cycle around the spacious plaza in front of the castle, taking time to admire the sheer size and baroque form of its façade. Spot the cherubic trumpet players sculpted onto the top of the pediment and notice the elegant clock with golden hands and Roman numerals. Enter through the main portal and look around the castle.

Attend one of the concerts, meetings and readings that are organized by the university in the castle’s auditorium. Another highlight is the Send festival, a funfair that takes place here three times per year.

Appreciate the tranquility of the area as you enjoy a leisurely stroll around the grassy grounds that surround the mansion.

Relax with hot beverages and snacks in the Castle Garden Café Münster. It stands in the midst of the colorful and eclectic floral displays of the Münster Botanical Garden. Explore the hot and humid greenhouses for their tropical plants from around the world.

The castle was initially constructed between 1767 and 1787, following the designs of German architect Johann Conrad Schlaun. It was damaged in World War II and later rebuilt to match its former layout. The final prince bishop of Münster, for whom the castle was built, died before he was able to move in.

The Münster Castle is located on the eastern side of the Münster Botanical Garden in the western part of the city’s historic center. Drive here and leave your car in the castle’s parking lot or take a bus to one of the nearby stops.

Visit some of the other attractions in the area, such as Tuckesburg, the Alter Zoo Former Owl House and the Domplatz.
