In Münster the town hall is actually the "historical town hall" - day-to-day city business is actually conducted in a number of nearby modern buildings, but the historical town hall is used for ceremonial occasions and concerts, and the . While the original building (considered one of the best examples of late Gothic secular architecture) was destroyed in the Second... 更多
The town hall was all but demolished by the allies in WW2 but the building was reconstructed in the 1950s with precision to original detail. The furnishings in the Council Chamber (cost of 2 euros to enter) were removed prior to the war and so preserved and subsequently reinstalled. There is a fairly comprehensive information booklet provided upon entry which... 更多
Worth a visit; it is central, that's for sure. There is a lot about Muenster that makes visiting worthwhile. It has few attractions that are singularly fabulous, but the city itself is quite extraordinary. When I am there, I pretend I live in this charming place. The city is lovely everywhere, but the best feature? Bicycling. It is a paradise... 更多
Interesting to note that the Town Hall (along with the Principalmarkt) was destroyed during WWII. The Town Hall was reconstructed after the war based on old drawings and photographs.

The building is lovely and the inside is nice, but if you are there for "information", forget it. There are a handful of English pamphlets and the person working the desk does nothing to assist you. We simply were looking for an English city tour, we had seen a tour the evening before where there were guides who were with... 更多
The Principalmark is a lovely part of the city, full of wonderful buildings and lovely shops and eateries. It was leveled during the war and then rebuilt brick by brick to its original appearance. Wonderful.
each day for a month I walked the various inner twisted streets that surround the market, lots of good to grab and places to sit and eat
