Photographer's Note

What I liked very much in Munster is how important the biclycle is there. The streets are perfectly adapted for bikes and I recommend to do not use the car if you are not used to drive with houndred of bicycles around you.
I had seen something similar only in the Netherlands.
It is true that the city is very, very flat and that makes it easier, but the city has also helped to use the bicycle. As example, where the wall was located now is a beautiful promenade that sorrounds the old city and looks like the highway belt that other big cities haver around (like the M-30 in Madrid). But this "highway" is only for bikes and not for cars.
The building behind the bicycles is the former Palace of the Prince-Bishop, built from year 1'767 to 1'787. Now it belongs to the University.
Can you see the banner with "START"? Well, it was not for a cycling competition but for a popular pedestrian race. Anyway, cycles are a mean of transport. Who races with the own car across the city ?
