Munster is a large university city in the Westphalia region of Germany. It has a young vibe with lots going on in terms of events and things to do. Advent is typically a very busy time of the year for local social events but also with German and international tourists. Christmas is a great time to visit and in this guide, we recommend the best hotels near Munich Christmas Market to help you efficiently plan your visit.
Hotels near Munster Christmas Market
Munster is home to six popular Christmas markets. The main event is located at the Historic Town Hall, both within the courtyard of the building and in front on the main street that is called Prinzipalmarkt. This beautiful street is lined with arcades that house shops and cafes. The area is lit up at night, further enhancing its beauty. If you would like to stay near the Christmas markets then we suggest staying in this area.

If you would like to stay in an apartment in Munster, I recommend the highly-rated Boardinghouse Münster. Don’t be put off by the name, these are very nice apartments that cater to tourists. The apartments are 7 minutes (500 metres) from the Town Hall Christmas market and only 5 minutes to the Light Market at Lambertikirchplatz. The accommodation uses 100% renewable electricity sources, avoids single-use plastic and supports local guides, making it one of the most sustainable hotels in Munster.
