The second largest city in Münsterland shines with numerous great events. The barbecue party is just as exciting as Germany's largest children's flea market or the street party. One of the highlights is the Ems Festival. The artists on the floating stage have been attracting audiences to the Ems city for years. The colourful programme is completed by the exhibitions and events at Frankenhof and Kloster Bentlage. With our calendar of events you can keep track of everything.

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.

In choreographed images between dance and performance, the performers Lena Schattenberg and Charlotte Petersen from the Münster-based MNEME kollektiv present "Anatomie der Sehnsucht" I "Anatomie der Peinlichkeit" by Marie Steiner (Vienna) and Alexandra Rauh at the Münsterland Festival, a Münsterland-Austrian production: the audience can expect a double evening that focuses on emotions and gets to the bottom of their nature.
"Anatomy of Longing" shows basic, human drives and embodies the feeling of longing in an abstract and pictorial choreography as a kind of observable longing creature. The bodies of the two dancers are closely connected and make the inner body of longing recognisable from the outside. The piece is accompanied live by the Iranian-Austrian composer and clarinettist Mona Mathbou Riahi, who creates an atmospheric sound space that animates and interacts with the longing being.
In contrast, "Anatomy of Embarrassment" deals with everyday changes and disruptions in social interactions. The episode is dedicated to the limits of shame and shamelessness and offers the audience a multi-layered associative surface of a deconstructed embarrassment via body, language, video and sound.
The piece is a co-production with the Tafelhalle Nuremberg. Supported by the NATIONAL PERFORMANCE NETWORK guest performance funding dance, funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, as well as the Ministries of Culture and the Arts of the Länder.
On the following Sundays, various shops in Rheine city centre 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.
