Samson's notes on the city.
RHEINE is a beautiful tiny city (ca. 55.000 inhabitants) bordering the state of Lower Saxony in the eastern side and The Netherlands on the western side of Germany. The city is located in the district of Steinfurt and is the next city to Münster. The city is divided by the river Ems giving it a truly interesting and beautiful landscape and structure. The city has a really beautiful old marketsquare where one can still regularly enjoy an open-air market tradition on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
At Christmastime, the marketsquare is all ablaze with lights from the beautifully decorated christmasmarket stalls which offer a great variety of gift items and other interesting things. It also becomes a beloved meeting place for city inhabitants both young and old at this time of the year. The city organizes presentations throughout the christmasmarket season beginning on the first Advent til Christmas Eve.
Restaurants, Cafes, Bars and Fashion Shops/Boutiques are also to be found in great abundance at the marketsquare which is adjacent to the new City Hall Square where one can find more such shops and cafes.
With a 5-minute walk from the main Train Station, one can reach the city's main shopping street and the heart of the city which is the old market place. Walking further on through the bridge and across to the other side of the Ems River one gets to the City Theater (Stadthalle) and to the Ems Einkauf Center (Ems Shopping Center) where you find Samson Cabantac Ballet School.
Our school's entrance is located right at the banks of the River Ems (westside) of the main meeting/shopping point of the city which is Ems Einkauf Center (Ems Shopping Center). This is a 100-year old beautifully renovated building which originally was a textile factory. Today a frequently visited shopping complex where one finds department stores and all sorts of shops selling all sorts of merchandise, bistros and cafes, flower shops, beauty salons, 2 fitness/sport studios, a huge beverage market (Getränkemarkt) cafes and government and private offices.
The most interesting cultural feature of this shopping center is, it houses our ballet school (Ballettschule Samson Cabantac) and a Museum of the textile industry which flourished in this historical building 100 years back.
The city of Rheine could be reached with fast train connections (InterCity/RE) which makes it very easy to reach nearby cities like Münster, Osnabrück, Hamm, Bielefeld, Lingen or Hannover and the nearby cities Enschede and Amsterdam in the Netherlands.
