Amazing for history enthusiasts!
Jul 2020
When you're in the city, you easily spot the historical city hall, where you can visit the peace hall, for just 1,50€. Inside you can listen to the history of this room, and have a close look at the wooden panels.

It's nice, especially for lovers of history. For everyone else, there's not that much to see.

Historic, but could be better
Feb 2020
Beautifully restored building containing the hall in which the Peace of Munster was sworn in and consequently the Netherlands was recognised as an independent country. Being inside this very hall is breathtaking for a Dutchmen or anyone believing in the right of self-determination.
Nevertheless, there could be more props and information provided to turn it into a truly enlightening landmark

Nice to visit but not much to see
Feb 2020 • Friends
Nice place to visit but don’t expect to be here more than 20 minutes. Besides the facade and the “Friedenssaal” there’s not a lot to see here. In the Friedenssaal, a few objects are on display but there’s nobody to tell you something about that or the room except for a small sign and a recorded tape which is played all day.

One of the Most Significant Buildings in Town
Aug 2019
With a typical Gothic façade, Muenster's town hall is a mid-14th century edifice. The characteristic gable was rebuilt true to the original in the 1950s. In 2015, it was awarded the European Heritage Label as the "Site of the Peace of Westphalia", which seems to be such a well fitting name for a place like Muenster, mainly a University and residential city where the number of bicycles exceed the number of people and where the old town is beautifully surrounded by a park.

Peace

Yes a truly historic hall, TheThirty years War is overlooked outside of Germany, but once you step inside and pick up a guide book you learn how this hall became the focal point to end war. Well worth visiting. Good pubs right close by afterwards as well.

Beautiful building

Even though the building was rebuilt, you can visit it and see the peace hall, where there are some great artifacts and also paintings of the people that signed the peace treaty between Spain and the Netherlands. A place full of history and which needs to be visited.

Reconstructed Town Hall
Apr 2019 • Couples
The reconstructed Town Hall is a really good-looking building among other old Münster buildings. It is worth to visit.

Lovely city

We visited the town of Munster early in the morning on Christmas Day. While the streets were empty when we arrived, as we delved deeper into the town, more and more townspeople entered the streets. Very charming town with beautiful buildings everywhere.

The old city center is filled with shops and unique historic sites. The city center is beautiful and easy to enjoy on a walking tour.
