The Westphalian city of Münster offers a lot to its visitors. The tourist highlights includes the historical center and of course the Peace Hall (Friedenssaal) in Münster’s gothic town hall. In 2017, the exhibitors at TEDDYBÄR TOTAL will have the opportunity to really get to know the city of the Peace of Westphalia in a red double-decker bus including a visit of the Peace Hall. This excursion takes place at Friday, 28th of April and is exclusively reserved for our registered exhibitors.
Exhibitors who would like to join this exclusive excursion will be collected by bus right outside Exhibition Hall South at 1:45 p.m. on the set-up day for TEDDYBÄR TOTAL. They will be treated to a one-hour tour of the vibrant student city of Münster. The sights included on the tour will of course be presented in detail. The tour participants will be able to choose from six languages: German, English, French, Dutch, Russian and Spanish. For our japanese guests there will be one of our interpreter on-sight.
The city tour ends at the Prinzipalmarkt. From there you’ll start a walk through the Peace Hall in the town hall, where the Thirty Years‘ War end 1648 with the Peace of Westphalia. The impressive story will be told in English.
After that getaway into history, it’s back to the Exhibition Hall by bus. This exclusive tour for exhibitors at TEDDYBÄR TOTAL lasts about 2.5 hours and costs EUR 20.00 per person.
