The Summer School has reserved a number of hotel rooms in Münster for the participants, which can be booked through the organizers of the Summer School. Participants can choose between a comfort and a budget option. The participants will have to pay for the rooms themselves, although it is possible for participants from outside of Germany to receive a financial aid to cover some of their travel and accommodation costs. Details will follow.

The city of Münster

Just what is typical of this city? Is it the imposing cathedral, the venerable churches and the dignified patrician houses? Or the Gothic Town Hall with its historical legacy of the Peace of Westphalia? Or per­haps rather the exuberant atmosphere, the many young faces everywhere in the streets and cafés – and the multitude of bicycles?

Münster: An old city or a young one? Actually, it’s the wrong question. Because it’s precisely this contrast, this excitement, which gives the city its unmistakeable flair. It’s a Hanse city, and a cathedral city, with over 1200 years of rich tradition. At the same time it’s an academic city with a large student population. All this makes Münster unique among Germany’s large cities. A rich history and today’s vibrant culture, both interlinked in everyday life in the city, are what you can experience at first hand here. For example, a trendy pub located within medieval walls, Picasso’s art in a Westphalian courtyard, or the gems of Baroque masterbuilders side by side with icons of contemporary architecture. Münster’s charm and beauty feed on this interplay.
