We visited this place again after a nine year break! The journey to Camping Münster took 3.25 hours (148 miles) and was another really pleasant trip, with the site immediately off the main road.
It costs 15€ a night on the stellplatz which includes electricity at 10 amps, with an additional cost of 50 cent per shower token (3.5 minutes). The shower complex is one of nicest we’ve seen in a long time! It is very clean and modern, with very spacious showers that have been decorated with animal caricatures in the shower cubicles.
We decided to stay in the first afternoon we were there as the weather was a bit rubbish, so we had a good tidy and sorted out a load of washing after our week away. The campsite is really well planned out and we’d already bought a few tokens for the machines (at 2.25€ a wash and 1.75€ for a dry, it was a bargain) so by the end of the evening we were all square and ready to go again.
The next day we caught the bus into the city as the bus stop is about a five minute walk from site. We bought a day ticket for 12€ and the bus took us into the main station. The campsite helpfully provide you with a bus timetable that also tells you where to disembark and which stand you get the bus from for your return journey.
There are quite a few Christmas Markets in Münster but before we even got to one we discovered a bicycle shop where we found a seat cover for Angela’s new bike that matches the bell we bought in Amsterdam – result!
We visited all five markets in Münster, indulging in the food and drink before heading back to the van when it got cold! To be honest, as we’ve been to so many markets over the years the shine is wearing off them but it has been nice to be back in Germany.
The best is yet to come though as in the next couple of days we’ll arrive at our ultimate destination – to spend Christmas with family!
