Compared to other German cities, Münster is a forerunner in the field of environment and climate protection. Münster is also Germany's bicycle metropolis with more bikes than inhabitants, more than 250 kilometres of bicycle paths and an underground bicycle parking area in front of the main station which can accommodate more than 3000 bicycles or "Leezen", as bicycles are lovingly called here.
Münster, incidentally the home of Germany's most important female poet Annette von Droste-Hülshoff, has a lot to offer in the way of recreational and leisure-time facilities. This is not only because of the many green zones accounting for 70% of its area. Münster is the city of international sculpture projects, of galleries and theatres, of conferences and conventions. Its 22 museums and 6 cinemas, the municipal theatre which puts on plays, concerts, dancing events as well as children's plays and an independent and lively artistic community are not only of interest for the inhabitants of Münster. More than 800 pubs, bars and restaurants offer enough possibilities for people to come together in Münster.
