Following are two examples of tours offered at the University of Münster:
The Schloss: Late Baroque residential palace and main building of the University
Münster’s Schloss dates back to the late Baroque period and is considered one of the masterpieces of the architect Johann Conrad Schlaun. Gutted by fire during World War II, the palace was completely rebuilt after 1945 as the main building of the University of Münster. Meanwhile, both the Baroque façade and the 1950s interior design are registered under historical landmark protection. In this tour, we take you around the main building and introduce you to the history of the Schloss and the University.
