The prominent three-pronged area in the foreground is the Schlossgarten, part of the grounds of the 18th century Schloss, a large palace originally built as a Roman Catholic episcopal residence. It later became the home of the University of Münster (Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster). About 90% of the town was destroyed during the war.
