Erbdrostenhof Münster

When visiting the city centre of Münster , the magnificent Erbdrostenhof appears quite unexpectedly. Even its entrance gate bears witness to the splendour of the building and is one of the most popular photo motifs in the city. The Erbdrostenhof is one of the jewels in Münster's magnificent townscape. Together with the Dominican Church and the Clemens Church, it forms the "baroque island" in Münster's city centre. The Münster City Museum is located directly opposite.

Strolling through Münster from the Erbdrostenhof

Take a leisurely stroll through the pedestrian zone, past the Lamberti Church to the Prinzipalmarkt, Münster's "good parlour". From there you can also visit the historic Friedenssaal (Peace Hall) in the historic town hall, continue your shopping spree and combine it with a visit to the Picasso Museum or stroll across the Domplatz (Cathedral Square) to Münster Castle.

The baroque Erbdrostenhof in Münster was built as a noble palace by Johann Conrad Schlaun for Münster's Erbdrosten Adolf Heidenreich Freiherr von Droste zu Vischering from 1753 to 1757.

The building was destroyed in the Second World War, but from 1953 to 1970 the Landschaftsverband Westfalen-Lippe (LWL) reconstructed it according to old plans. The LWL maintains the building and houses a collection of historical keyboard instruments there. The Erbdrostenhof is only open to the public during festive events. The historic building is particularly beautifully illuminated during the "Schauraum" campaign in late summer.

Reading

The Vienna-based author and cartoonist Stefanie Sargnagel writes radically subjective but also wise with a big pinch of cynicism and black humour.

Her topics are the so-called simple life, feminism, hopelessness or depression. She breaks all genre boundaries and achieves something on paths never trodden that you don't have to call a novel to be captivated by it. It is often hilarious and sometimes tragic. Stefanie Sargnagel is a guest at the Münsterland Festival with a reading at Pension Schmidt.

Stefanie Sargnagel is one of the most important Austrian authors of the 21st century. In 2016 she received the BKS Bank Audience Award in the competition for the Ingeborg Bachmann Prize. In October 2020, her book "Dicht" was published, which reached number 2 on the bestseller list of the Austrian book trade.
