Muenster - the most liveable city world-wide Munster Reviews
Mar 24, 2007
Muenster is a very nice city in the German State Northrhine Westphalia. In the year 2004 it won the Gold LivCom Award in the category of cities with 200,000 to 750,000 inhabitants.
It is also known as the "Bicycle Capital" of Germany because bikes (called "Leezen" by the locals) are the most common means of transportation in the city. Each day over 100,000 Münster residents ride their bikes. In fact, with around 500,000 bikes in Münster, the number of cycles is nearly double the number of residents. It has got bicycle tracks all over the city and a special bike station near the central station (park & ride) and an extra bike wash similar to a car wash.
It is one of the biggest university cities in Germany.
It got 90 churches and a beautiful center where most of the buidlings had to be rebulit after the 2nd WW in the old style.
