Münster is a green city. The promenade, the Botanic garden, the nearby recreational area around the Aasee, numerous city parks and green spaces as well as large country parks and recreational landscapes ensure the city has a pleasant climate and a high quality of life. Not least the city’s greenness that amounts to approx. 550 hectares just in terms of the urban green space make it such a wonderful place to live and fall in love with. Münster is backing two planning instruments so that things stay this way:
- the green space ordinance of the city of Münster as an overall city plan for the development of free spaces and recreation,
- the four partial space landscape plans for the development of the natural environment and the landscape.
