Staying in Münster

Münster is a city with many facets: Founded in 793, the city has a long and illustrious history which still seems to echo through time in the mediaeval buildings of the historic old town which harmoniously contrasts to the modern architecture seen in the city’s new buildings. Münster is a city of science and learning and a German capital city of bicycles. The university founded in 1780 is the largest employer of the region and it’s more than 40.000 students create a young and vivid atmosphere.

We take care of reservations for dinner at different places across the city for our participants during the summer course. Experience Münster beyond international taxation and take some time to stroll around the city and visit modern restaurants or traditional student pubs.


All lectures will take place at the "Kettelerscher Hof", Königsstrasse 51-53, 48143 Münster, which is located in the centre of Münster close to the main building of the Faculty of Law.
