Sightseeing and excursions

Cultural highlights include Schwansbell Castle, the museum and doll exhibition in Lünen, and Münster's State Museum of Art and Cultural History, Cathedral and Natural History Museum. The Movie Park Germany in Bottrop is also well worth a visit, as is the famous musical "Starlight Express" in Bochum. Guests who prefer things to be a bit more technical should try visiting the boat lift in Henrichenburg or Bochum's German Mining Museum. There's also the Allwetterzoo in Münster as well as the zoo in Dortmund, or why not discover the nearby "Zeche Zollern" colliery on the Industrial Heritage Trail in Dortmund?
Have fun discovering the region!
