Family-friendly Münsterland

Families feel particularly at home in Münsterland. This is because the region is very concerned about a family-friendly environment, a good social infrastructure and needs-based care for the little ones. This can be seen, for example, in the high childcare rates in the region: These are higher than the national average both for U3 care, with an average of 35 per cent, and for children between three and five years of age, with around 97 per cent. All in all, Münsterland offers a good childcare situation and a wide range of educational opportunities for older children in schools.

In addition, thanks to the many green spaces in the region, there are many great opportunities for family outings, whether with children, grandparents, nieces and nephews. Here you have the perfect environment for you and your family!

Excursions with the whole family

Münsterland is green and colourful, with lots of great opportunities to go on tour with the family. You can discover the region together by bike and visit exciting destinations along the way.

Münsterland is a great place to spend relaxing days. This is especially true for families. Wonderful amusement parks invite you to climb, discover and play, and the zoos and wildlife parks in Münsterland are also popular with many families. And it's not only when the weather is bad that the numerous museums attract visitors. Entire galaxies circle in the artificial sky, Romans come back to life, the history of the horse is told and art doesn't have to be complicated at all. Trying things out, touching things, understanding things and having lots of fun - that's what a family outing in Münsterland is all about.
