Münster Cathedral

St. Paul's Cathedral was built between 1225 and 1264, a period of transition in the history of architecture between Romanesque and Gothic art. The cathedral was largely destroyed during the Second World War. The astronomical clock, as well as the series of apostles, epitaphs, altars and choir chapels miraculously escaped destruction. After the war, the cathedral was rebuilt identically.

Saint Lambert's Church

The construction of the present church of Saint-Lambert took 150 years, from 1375 to 1525. It is a late Gothic building inspired by Cologne Cathedral and St. Vitus Cathedral in Prague. The building was restored in the second half of the 19th century and after the Second World War due to war damage. After the Anabaptist riots in the 1530s, the Anabaptist leaders of Münster were tortured and executed, their bodies hung in three iron baskets on the church tower. The baskets were removed in 1881 during the renovation and reattached in 1898. In 1927 they were restored.

Dominican Church

The current church was part of a Dominican monastery complex, of which only a wall remains. The church was built during the 18th century and served as the conventional church of the Dominicans until the monastery was abolished in 1811.
