Munster is a town of Germany, capital of the Prussian province of Westfalen, and formerly the capital of an important bishopric. It lies in a sandy plain on the Dortmund-Ems canal, at the junction of several railways, 107 m. S.W. of Bremen on the line to Cologne. The town preserves its medieval character, especially in the " Prinzipal-Markt " and other squares, with their lofty gabled houses and arcades. The fortifications were dismantled during the 18th century, their place being taken by gardens and promenades. Of the many churches of Munster the most important is the cathedral, one of the most striking in Germany, although disfigured by modern decorations.
