About the WFM
Münster provides easy access to a total of five motorways, three (A1, A31, A43) from North to South, and two (A30, A2) from East to West. These are supplemented by a dense network of railway lines, with many highspeed trains (ICEs) connecting Münster with national and international destinations. Münster has its own airport nearby (FMO), and there are several international airports within reach, such as Düsseldorf (90 minutes), Amsterdam (two and a half hours), and Frankfurt (three hours).
Münster’s transport links are completed by two waterways, the Dortmund-Ems Canal and the Mittelland Canal, these providing direct links to the “Silk Road” (Duisburg/Rhine) and to the North Sea-Atlantic route (e.g. Rotterdam). The Hansa Business Park trans-shipment point on the Dortmund-Ems Canal is 250 metres in length, and allows for two heavy goods ships to be loaded and unloaded simultaneously.
