Back in the "Bananenreiferei" (I did not take any photos on wednesday)
Karsten and Johannes doing sports...err, dancing.
On our way back home.
The Lamberti Church, in the evening.
One of the buildings in the background has a design that is common in Münster and which is also realized in the city hall. This architecture inspired the Münster / CEOI 2003 logo.
Also note the metal cages in which some early baptists were presented as deterrence and bird food after having been tortured to death, in 1535.
The Münster cathedral.
By the way...Münster is situated in Westphalia!
