A packed calendar of events is typical for the district town of Borken. In summer the "Borken Beach" attracts visitors, and in winter there is a large ice skating rink at "Borken Ice". The Pröbstingsee is the "stage" for sporting events and the Vennehof town hall impresses with culture. And at the end of the year, the Christmas markets let the town and its surroundings shine.
If you want to see more events, also from the surrounding area, simply change the radius or expand the search date.
From the idea to the sketch on paper, transferred to a printing block made of wood, metal, cardboard, linoleum or stone, altered in the etching bath by aggressive acid, deepened by multi-layered colour applications or expanded in combination with collages - printmaking was and is an exciting field.
The prINT printmaking project as part of the Münsterland Festival once again gives two female artists and two male artists from the guest country Austria (all currently living in Vienna) the chance to present their printmaking to interested people with their exhibitions in the barn at Kloster Bentlage and at FARB.
In addition to works that have been created in the past years, the exhibition will also show copies fresh off the presses that the artists produce during their two-week working stay at the beginning of September in the workshops of the Druckvereinigung am Kloster Bentlage.
On the following Sundays, various shops in the city centre of Borken will be open from 1 to 6 p.m. as part of an event.
Vegetables and fruit fresh from the field, meat products from the region, fragrant baked goods straight from the oven, colourful seasonal flowers and mysterious spices from all over the world. The weekly markets in Münsterland invite you to "open-air shopping" and yet are far more than mere sales places. This is where locals and visitors meet, the latest news is exchanged and there is time for a chat among friends.
Market days in Borken:
Thursday: 8 a.m. - 12.30 p.m.
Saturday: 8.30 - 12 h
