Thus,  visitors can walk for more than 1 km even  when it is raining. Furthermore, on rainy days  the zoo‘s inhabitants, from ara birds to zebras,  may return into their houses where they can  be watched by the visitors. Each year, around  one million people from Germany and from neighbouring countries come to visit Münster  Zoo. On today‘s evening, the zoo is exclusively opened for EWCPS 2015‘s conferees. Enjoy  to walk around, to enjoy the aquarium, to feed the elephants, to fondle a snake, or just to  take the opportunity to take part in one of the guided tours led by Münster Zoo staff. For  those who need a rest, there are many places to sit down in different areas. Food and drinks  are served at different locations in the zoo; a map provided to the conferees at the entrance  will guide you to the restaurant and catering stations. Or just follow the illuminated paths to  meet other EWCPS 2015 participants – close to the elephants, in the aquarium or in the  horse museum....  Free bus transportation (included in your conference dinner ticket) from the conference  venue to Münster Zoo starts at 18.45.  Free bus transportation (included in your conference dinner ticket) from Münster Zoo to  Münster main station (via Münster city centre) at: 22.30, 23.15, 23.30, 23.45 and 00.15.  Booking required.

After the last talk will have been finished, buses will take you from the conference venue to  the city centre. Looking back to a history of more than 1200 years, Münster is full of historic  buildings and places. A guided city tour (one hour) will lead you to Münster’s most famous  attractions, e.g. the town hall where sections of the Treaty  of Westphalia were negotiated or Münster cathedral  which, in its present form, was built 750 years ago.  At 19.00, many sponsors and exhibitors are looking forward  to welcoming you at their evening events taking place  in and close to the city centre.  Please note that there will be no bus transportation back to  the conference venue after the end of the guided city tour.  Bus transfer and guided city tour are free of charge.
