Much of this has religious origins, like the fragment of the Liesborner Altar, which is the pinnacle of Westphalian Late Gothic art and was painted in the last third of the 15th century.

This all dates from the end of the 14th century, and reflects the confidence that Münster’s citizens had in their episcopal landowners.The oldest architecture is the monumental pair of Romanesque towers that forms the westwork from the 1100s.Give yourself plenty of time to investigate the cathedral as there’s a lot to discover.At the moment this role is filled by Martje Saljé, the first female “watchman” in the building’s history.Every weekday evening apart from Tuesday she marks the stroke of the half hour and hour between and with a blast from a copper horn.
