Prinzipalmarkt shopping arcades

Since around 1290, the rows of houses with their gabled fronts and covered walkways have been a dominant feature of Prinzipalmarkt, Münster's oldest market street in the heart of the city. Shopping whatever the weather – this was even possible back in the Middle Ages under the arcades of Prinzipalmarkt. Once the town's main square, it features 48 gabled houses along with the famous town hall where the Treaty of Westphalia was signed, the wine tavern with its Renaissance facade, merchants' houses and the market church of St. Lambert.
