Münster is well-known for hosting the peace conference in 1648 that ended the Thirty-Year-War.

Münster can be reached via its international airport Münster/Osnabrück or, alternatively, via the airports of Dortmund, Düsseldorf, and Frankfurt. Münster is also well connected with the German high speed train system.
