In the midst of beautiful nature, six open-air theatres in the Münsterland inspire with great open-air drama. The stages are mainly run on a voluntary basis and with a lot of local commitment. And that pays off: in 2018, over 200,000 people attended the children's and evening plays at all six stages. With 2,300 seats, the "Freilichtspiele Tecklenburg" stage is even the largest open-air music theatre in Germany.
Since 2016, the open-air theatres have joined together to form a network . A central goal is the annual publication of the joint season flyer "Unsere Freilichtbühnen im Münsterland". The cultural office at Münsterland e.V. coordinates the network.
