Submit proposals now

The people of Münsterland are in demand: For episodes nine to twelve, they can submit suggestions for exciting podcast locations. We are looking for favourite places that are still insider tips rather than sightseeing classics. Where do you go in Münsterland to enjoy the city flair or to breathe in the country air? Which exciting sides of our region still lie undiscovered on our own doorstep?

Suggestions can be sent by email to dasguteleben@muensterland.com or made via social media via direct message or comment (channel "MÜNSTERLAND. DAS GUTE LEBEN" on Instagram and Facebook) until 8 August.

Episode 3: The Port of Münster

If you long for water and harbour idylls, this is the place to be. Münster's harbour pulsates with the city's urban and Mediterranean life: chic cafés and restaurants directly on the harbour promenade are popular meeting places. But there is more to it than just eating, drinking and strolling. The harbour area has much more to offer: History and industrial culture, theatre and art, cinema and a show dairy. Or simply sit on the water's edge, unwind and watch rowers do their sport. Pure relaxation - in the middle of Münster!

"Radio is cinema in the head - has been my motto for over 20 years! Growing up in Siegen, I moved to Münsterland in 2006 to present on the radio for many years. In those eight years I learned to appreciate and love the region. After my Bavarian exile, I came back in 2020 and continue with radio and television where I left off back then: Enjoying my adopted home! And because there are still so many unknown places here, I want to go on an acoustic discovery tour with you."
