First a word of warning: There are many cyclists on the local roads, so exploring the region around Münster by car means keeping a keen eye on the road ahead. Münsterland is famous for its magnificent moated castles, castles and monasteries in the area between the Teutoburger Wald and the Lippe.
10 km west of Münster lies the romantic Hülshoff moated castle, the birthplace and residence of the well-known author Annette von Droste-Hülshoff. The first official mention of the castle goes back to the 11th century, and the museum and the park grounds are open to visitors and easily reached by car.
Mainly during the Christmas season numerous events take place at Hülshoff Castle, from winter banquet to literary festival. You can reach the Hülshoff moated castle in less than an hour from the car rental offices in Münster or Osnabrück. From the Münsterland it is also well worthwhile visiting the Rhineland and stopping over in Cologne or Düsseldorf.
Adventure in Osnabrück – by hire car to the largest outdoor park in Europe

Open air cinema at the castle of Münster: car and culture
The university city of Münster is regarded as a mecca for cinema fans, because compared with other cities the range of cinemas is particularly diverse. From the large cineplex in the harbour to small art house cinemas, there are plenty of attractive venues for watching the flicks. The highlight is the annual open-air cinema at Schloss Münster, showing blockbusters to B-movies.
Renting a car is also worthwhile for keen cineastes, even if they do prefer padded cinema seats, because you can reach the screening of your choice in good time by driving a hire car from Münster or Osnabrück.
