What makes people in the Münsterland tick?

Many Münsterlanders are deeply rooted in their region. This was the result of a study conducted in 2020, in which the locals gave their region high approval ratings. They care for, maintain and shape their homeland with a lot of heart. In contrast to other regions, the number of inhabitants in Münsterland will therefore remain constant until 2030. These results were confirmed by the SKL Happiness Atlas in 2022. The study revealed: Münsterland is the happiest region in Germany!

Admittedly: The native Münsterlanders are rarely noticed as chatterboxes. They think before they speak, act thoughtfully, have a mind of their own and like to take things into their own hands.

Whether in the city or in the country, Münsterlanders like to party . They cultivate common interests in clubs and at events. Whether it's a shooting match in summer, indoor picnics in winter, sports club activities, festivals, city festivals and much more - Münsterlanders love socialising, their clubs and their neighbourhood. Because that's what home means. And with their down-to-earth hospitality, the Münsterlanders have already won over many a newcomer.

Conquering the hearts of Münsterlanders and making friends can sometimes be a hard job. But it pays to keep at it! Persistence, tackling things and taking part pay off in the end. And maybe you'll even make new friends for life.


THE GOOD LIFE is a matter of course for Münsterland and yet so unusual. Whether in the city or in the countryside - it's never boring in Münsterland.
