Münster, Germany - 31st October 2011

By: indrarado

Helloho!

Today was a quite informative day. I saw the "Spiekerhof" in Münster.  Most interesting here is the Kiepenkerl statue of the traveling merchant. Destroyed during the Second World War, it has been restored true to original and inducted by Federal President Theodor Heuss in 1953.

Kiepenkerle were itinerant traders in the German area between Hamburg and Sauerland.

You can also see two old restaurants there, the Big and the Small Kiepenkerl.

Even the last minutes of the well known crime series Wilsberg and Tatort Münster often take place here.

On our way back I saw a part of the "Prinzipalmarkt" - the principal market. It's the main market, in contrast to the rye and fish market further down the road. It is also known as "parlor" of Münster.
It's dominated by gabled houses on both sides, but none of the  gables are alike. And on the north side it's edged by the Lamberti church to which I can get closer to maybe the next time.
