28 newcomers to Münsterland enjoyed a thriller on Thursday evening, 10 August. During a city tour with exciting stories about the popular TV series "Tatort" and "Wilsberg", they got to talk to others who have also recently moved to the region. The Onboarding@Münsterland service of Münsterland e.V., which welcomes newcomers and returnees to the region, had invited them.
City guide Patrick Gurris, himself a scriptwriter for film and television, entertainingly illuminated Münster's success as a crime metropolis and led the newcomers to the scenes of invented crimes - from Prinzipalmarkt to Spiekerhof to Domplatz. Afterwards, the tour ended in a cosy atmosphere at the Aposto restaurant.
"Our journey of criminal discovery through Münster provided plenty to talk about and was thus an ideal icebreaker for the participants to exchange ideas and get to know each other," said Paulina Wittich, project manager of the Onboarding@Münsterland service of Münsterland e.V. "It doesn't matter whether the newcomers live in the main city of Münster or in one of the surrounding towns and communities: Networking with like-minded people is important to bind skilled workers to the region in the long term."
Participant Josien now lives in Münsterland with her boyfriend; they just moved together from Darmstadt to Steinfurt. Her employer, EUREGIO in Gronau, had recommended the Münsterland e.V. event. A removal company brought their furniture on Thursday, then they went to the welcome event in Münster. "We are starting from scratch and don't know anyone in the region yet," said the 28-year-old. "So it was just nice to meet new people."
More welcome events are planned in the coming months. Info on the dates and insights into past events can be found at www.muensterland.com/willkommensevents.
