A strong economy and plenty of leisure opportunities
The Münsterland region has many faces: on the one hand, an innovative SME sector produces a thriving economy and excellent job opportunities. On the other hand, beautiful countryside and proximity to large towns in the Ruhr region offer plenty to do.
A typical Münsterland resident feels very attached to the region and has plenty of entrepreneurial drive – so it is not surprising that the region offers the best conditions for career development: the labour market benefits from the presence of many global market leaders, and there is almost full employment in many towns. At the same time, it is still an affordable place to live. Low rents and property prices mean that living costs are low. It is a particularly attractive area for families, offering a good range of kindergartens, schools and leisure activities for children.
Green fields, gentle hills and charming waterways invite residents to go out walking or cycling or to take to the water. Prestigious festivals and concert series as well as typical local fairs and events put some fun into life.
Anyone who wants to experience the buzz of a city can easily reach attractive towns in the Ruhr by car or train. The Netherlands are close by and always worth a visit, with charming towns offering visitors shopping and leisure opportunities.
