This Friday the 7th of March, we will be paying a flying visit to Münster in North-Rhine Westfalia (Germany) and Amsterdam in the Netherlands.
The purpose of our visit is a meeting in Ladbergen which is between Münster and Osnabruck. As Múnster seems like a historic city, we elected to spend the night there.
We'll stay the night in Sheraton hotel at Amsterdam Schipol Airport and drive to Ladbergen in the morning. We expect this drive to take around the 2 ½ hour to 3 hour region depending on traffic/weather etc.
Once we have completed our business in Ladbergen, we will continue on to Münster where we are booked to stay in the Hotel Kaiserhof which seems to be fairly centrally located and walking distance to most places.
Although Münster-Osnabruck airport would have been an ideal airport to fly to, there are no direct flights from Zürich. Given that we're only away for the weekend and are leaving after work, we didn't really fancy a 7 to 9 hour train journey either.
