The celebration of the "350th Anniversary of the Peace of Westphalia" ..


10.1 KB..shapes the social, political, and cultural life in the cities of Münster and Osnabrück and of this whole "region of peace". Having been chosen as one of the sites for the conclusion of this European Peace, Münster is ready to look back upon its past to concentrate on the idea of "350 Years of the Peace of Westphalia - Europe, Region, Future" but it is also ready to meet the tasks of the forthcoming century.

What other medium could be more appropriate to represent the world wide character of international understanding the Peace of Westphalia offers than the Internet?

Here you will find both extensive texts and pictures illustrating the historical events of the first half of the 17th century. We inform you about more than 400 events dealing with this extraordinary anniversary in Münster alone, initiated by its citizens and institutions; we will also keep you up to date with the highlights of our anniversary year. Our "peace network" will guide you to the other internet offers.

We wish that the variety of activities and the great number of our citizens participating in them will contribute to the future development of one peaceful, federal European "House".

I hope that you will enjoy our internet offer and that this "virtual" visit will invite you to make a "real" visit to our city and its many festivities.
