Enjoyment evening and getting to know each other with bread, wine and culture

In November 2021, around 20 newcomers made contacts in Vreden at a welcome event and discovered the art, culture and culinary delights of Münsterland. First they went on an enjoyable discovery tour to the Geelink bakery, where the Münsterland newcomers not only tasted specialities from the bakery, but also exquisite wines. Things got musical and artistic afterwards at the AV picnic concert with ELIS NOA at kult, an event of the Münsterland Festival. "I really enjoyed the concert at the kult this evening! It was the crowning finale to an all-round nice evening of getting to know each other," said new Münsterland resident Marco Leinz, for example.

An evening at the harbour in Münster

On a guided tour of the port in Münster in August 2021, Münsterland newcomers not only got to know the city port with all its facets, but also made contacts with other newcomers. After the harbour tour, they came together for a cosy exchange in the harbour cheese dairy, where they also tasted one or two cheese specialities. "It was a super nice evening with such nice people. I think the format of the welcome events is really good and I look forward to more events in Münsterland!" said participant Carolin Woltering, who moved back to Münster from Frankfurt.

Newcomers on a tour of the Sasse fine distillery

"Welcome - and cheers!" Getting to know each other in a relaxed atmosphere and visiting the Sasse fine distillery at the same time: this offer was taken up by many newcomers in September 2020. During a guided tour of the treasure chamber and distillery, followed by a tasting with picnic treats, the newcomers to Münsterland were able to exchange ideas with like-minded people and round off the evening.

Getting to know each other During a game of Swin Golf

Tee off, hit, Münsterland: Many newcomers also gratefully accepted the offer to play a game of swin golf in August 2020 in Ascheberg-Davensberg at the Eickholt restaurant. They exchanged ideas in good spirits at the end of the day in the fresh air and enjoyed the evening with drinks and finger food.

Poetry slam at the Trafostation Münster

Many (new) Münsterlanders accepted the invitation to the Trafostation in Münster in January 2020 to meet new people in a relaxed atmosphere. The multiple award-winning poetry slammer Andreas Weber, who explained the "common Münsterlander" to the newcomers, also provided plenty to talk about that evening.
