Hotels in Dortmund

With a population of more than five million, the German city of Dortmund is the largest urban area in the country's Ruhr district. Although built around heavy industry including coal and steel, today Dortmund is better known for its green spaces. Parks, forests, waterways and gardens now cover almost half of the city. We have a fantastic range of Dortmund hotels to choose from, all within easy reach of the city's major sights.

Football

The beautiful game is a major passion for residents of Dortmund and the surrounding area. Local team Borussia Dortmund FC have been crowned champions of Germany's Bundesliga a total of eight times, making them one of the most successful teams in the country. Consider catching a game at the impressive Westfalenstadion ground.

History, arts and culture

If you're keen to take in some live music, enjoy an evening at the theatre or perhaps catch some live regional cabaret during your visit to the city, you won't be disappointed. Get tickets for an opera at the Dortmund Concert House, or perhaps see your favourite rock band at the Westfalenhalle 1 arena.

Fascinating museums can be found across the city. Try the Apothecary Museum where you can learn all about the world of pharmacy and medicines. Petrol heads meanwhile will love the Motor Car Museum Dortmund, home to a large number of restored cars and motorbikes. Museum Für Kunst & Kulturgeschichte is the place to find everything from Roman gold treasure to paintings by the celebrated German landscape artist Caspar David Friedrich.

The Steinwache Memorial is a former police and Gestapo prison that's now dedicated to telling the story of "Resistance and Persecution in Dortmund from 1933 to 1945".

To get a better idea of one of the major industries that helped shape the city, pay a visit to Zollern Colliery, a coal mine that began operations in 1902. The site now houses an exhibition which details what life was like as a miner in the city.

Out and about

There are plenty of opportunities in Dortmund to get out into the fresh air. Romberg Park Botanical Garden is one of the largest of its kind in Europe, with 65 hectares of stunning landscape to explore. Westfalenpark is a great destination for families and is known for its impressive rose garden.

Visit during December to catch one of Germany's largest Christmas markets, which effectively takes over the centre of town, filling it with craft and produce stalls of all descriptions.

Eating and drinking

Food and drink play an integral role in city life and you'll find an excellent choice of restaurants to enjoy during your visit. Pfefferkorn steakhouse is highly rated for its warm and friendly atmosphere and succulent meat dishes, while you can enjoy fine dining and a modern Italian menu at Acqua Pazza Dortmund.

Look out for local specialities such as Salzkuchen mit Mett – a pastry roll filled with pork and onions and topped with salt and caraway seeds. Pfefferpotthast is another local favourite – a peppery stew that goes particularly well with the local beer. Indeed, as Dortmund remains one of Europe's major brewing centres, you must take the opportunity to try one or two of the local ales while you're visiting.
