Tip: The Münsterland is a cycling region! 4,500 kilometres of cycle paths offer you almost unlimited possibilities in the city and in the countryside: you can commute to work comfortably by bike and go on great tours with friends and family.
The villages of Everswinkel and Alverskirchen, today the two districts of the municipality, were established in the Middle Ages around the churches of the time. Most of the nearly 10,000 inhabitants live in Everswinkel today; the smaller Alverskirchen is a good five minutes' drive southwest of the town centre. Eleven rural farming communities also belong to the municipality.
Both towns consist mainly of housing estates. The industrial estates to the north of Alverskirchen and on the outskirts of Everswinkel are mainly home to medium-sized companies.
Even if rental and purchase prices follow the general real estate trend overall, there are still numerous niches to be discovered in Münsterland when building, buying or renting. In rural Münsterland, the average rent per square metre is between five and seven euros, and the average purchase price for flats and houses per square metre is 2100 euros.
