Transporttage 2017

MÜNSTER

• Münster with its 300,000 inhabitants is a city of science, history, arts and the informal German capital of bicycle traffic. In October 2004 Münster won the Gold LivCom Award as the city with the highest quality of life in the world.

• With around 55,000 students, Münster is among the 10 biggest universities in Germany and is ranked among the best 250 universities in the world.

• Historically, Münster is well known for the Anabaptist rebellion in 1535 and for hosting the congress signing the Peace of Westphalia, which in 1648 ended Thirty Years' War.

• Münster is also a city of art: the LWL-Museum für Kunst und Kultur hosts art ranging from the early Middle Ages through to the present with works by Heinrich Brabender, Lucas Cranach the Elder, Franz Marc, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, August Macke, Otto Piene, Gerhard Richter and Rosemarie Trockel, amongst many others. The Pablo Picasso Art Museum has an inventory of over 800 prints by Pablo Picasso, including almost the entire lithographic oeuvre of the Spanish artist.

• Moreover, every ten years since 1977 and therefore also in 2017, Münster is the site of the Skulptur Projekte, a project where the many possibilities of staging art in public spaces are explored.

• We invite you to attend the TrasportTage 2017 in Münster and hope that you will be able not only to enjoy the science discussed at the meeting, but also the city of Münster, with its beautiful churches, monuments, museums and life. Take care of bicycles when crossing the road!
