Münster tourist information
When you arrive in Münster, head forat Heinrich-Brüning-Strasse 9, in the front of the new city hall near the Lambertikirche in the city center. You'll find a helpful desk staff, plus racks filled with free brochures about the city and the surrounding Münsterland region. A doorway leads to an office where you can arrange for a hotel room if you've arrived without a booking.
Be sure to pick up the free English-language Münster City Guide, a brochure with with chapters on the city's history, art and culture, shopping, guided tours, and other topics. The guide includes a city map that's keyed to descriptions of 50 churches, monuments, museums, and other sights. The monthly German-language Münster Live magazine is another useful publication, with day-by-day listings of concerts, plays, exhibitions, and other events.
Münster Information is open from 9:30 a.m. - 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday. You'll also find an information desk in the historic Rathaus and a comprehensive Münster Marketing Web site in English.
Münster: Stadt des Westfälischen Friedens is a detailed, nicely illustrated, and affordable guidebook for visitors who read German. We bought our copy at Poertgen Herder in the center of town. The multi-level bookstore has a large assortment of regional books and maps. If you read only English, not to worry: The tourist office's publications will tell you everything you need to know.
