The “Send” takes place three times a year on the square in front of the “Schloss Münster” (Münster City Palace). The name “Send” is a derivation of the German word “Synode” (Engl. ‘synod’), the meeting of clergymen and senior representatives of the diocese in Münster which has been held twice a year since the 9th century. On this occasion, a market has been held since the the 11th century which differed from the regular weekly market for townspeople and lifted sales restrictions or privileges for local merchants and craftsmen. Today, you still can experience that feeling, alongside several funrides!
