Living in Münster and Castellón

 

Münster is a city that keeps its history alive. Houses, churches and squares in the restored old town “tell” tales from different centuries, all the while setting a stage that makes every visit in Münster an experience. You can comfortably reach many of the most important tourist features in Münster by foot or by bike from the Prinzipalmarkt.

Around the historical center of Münster you got the so called green lung “Promenade”. It has a length of 4.5 km round way. The Promenade is also where the huge flea market takes part in summer time every third Saturday between May and September.

From the “Promenade” you can easily reach the lake “Aasee” which has a size of 40.2 Hektar and with a length of 2.3 km. The lake is surrounded by local parks and is the biggest local recreation area of Münster. Next to the Promenade you also see the castle, where you find the departments of the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität. Behind the castle there is a beautiful botanical garden.

On Wednesdays and Saturdays the townsfolk of Münster love to go to the Market which takes place on the “Domplatz” from 7.30am to 2.30pm. You find different booths with a special flair.

For the nightlife people usually go to the old town “Kuhviertel” with its different pubs and restaurants. They also love to go to the harbor, where you find Cafes, Restaurants, a big Cinema as well as Clubs.

So, come and enjoy Münster & spend a great time here!

 

Castellón de la Plana

 

 

Castellón de la Plana,the capital of the province of Castellon, is a town with 175,000 inhabitants, although if the small towns that make up the surrounding metropolitan area are included then the total comes to almost half a million people. It is a pleasant, sunlit town that lies between the Desert de les Palmes hills and the Mediterranean Sea, and is surrounded by orange groves. Industrial development in the area is dominated by a strong ceramics sector. The city is situated 65 km north of Valencia and 285 south of Barcelona.

Castellón has grown in recent years to become one of the most high-profile places in the Valencian Community and Spain. The University, the Conference Centre and Auditorium, the Fine Arts Museum, the Marina and the Planetarium are all evidence of the economic and cultural growth and development of this Mediterranean town.

The main popular festivals in the town are the Magdalena, which is celebrated in March, and Saint Peter’s festival, which takes place in El Grau de Castellón in June.

The province of Castellón mixes seaside and mountain landscapes. Along the coast, the landscape combines large areas of orange groves with 120 km of excellent beaches bathed by the calm waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Inland, the landscape changes dramatically – the province of Castellón is the second most mountainous in Spain and its inland areas have a rich cultural, historical and landscape heritage.
