Explore Münster by Bike
A bicycle belongs to every inhabitant of Münster. Or two? Or three? Not quite, but about 500,000 bicycles per 310,000 inhabitants. Hardly any other city has such a well-developed network of bike paths and so many special offers related to cycling. There is an almost car-free city center, expressways for bicycles and the largest bicycle parking garage in Germany.
Newcomers don’t always have an easy time navigating the scurrying crowd of cyclists. And out-of-town car drivers sometimes drive back home drenched in sweat.
The most beautiful bike path in Münster, everyone agrees, is the Promenade – the car-free ring around the city center – unique in Europe. From here, all places within the city area can be easily reached by bicycle.
But it’s not just cycling in the city center that has its appeal; the entire Münsterland region is crisscrossed by a network of around 4500 km of cycle paths. There are over 200 circular routes, themed routes and much more.
Discover Münster and the Münsterland – of course in style by bike. Start your city center visits or bike tours in the surrounding countryside directly from the Hotel zur Prinzenbrücke. So that you can park your bike dry and safe during your stay at the hotel, we offer free storage in our bike garage. The garage is accessible at all times with your room key. Of course, the offer is valid only as long as there is space in the garage.
