Münsterland - Living in the countryside

Münsterland owes its charm to its many (small) towns and idyllic places. Over 60 smaller towns and communities offer you plenty of space and opportunities to feel at home: Historic town centres, residential areas in the countryside, charming old buildings, cosy renovated "Kotten", but also modern flats with a view of the picturesque landscape, lots of space, peace and nature await you.

But living in the countryside in Münsterland also means in most cases: Being in the city or at work in no time at all. From many villages you can commute easily into the city, have short distances and often reach Münster in half an hour or three quarters of an hour. Depending on the location, the Ruhr area, the Netherlands or East Westphalia are also easy to reach. The infrastructure in the countryside is particularly well suited for families with children. The communities in Münsterland offer local schools and a variety of childcare options for the little ones. The diverse range of leisure, cultural and sporting activities usually leaves nothing to be desired.

Search and find real estate in the countryside

Dreams still come true in Münsterland. Even though prices for houses and flats are following the general real estate trend overall and becoming more expensive, there are still numerous niches to be discovered when building, buying or renting.

Münsterland is an experienced commuter region. Living in Münster and working in the surrounding area or vice versa is everyday life for many Münsterlanders. The cities and municipalities in Münsterland are therefore working hard on a joint mobility concept to make living and working as ideal as possible for everyone.
