Visitors attracted by the fame of the Borussia Dortmund football team or the local beer, discover very quickly that this city offers far much more than that.
A visit to this beautiful city in northern Germany is a great holiday idea, thanks to its large open spaces, parks and numerous museums and attractions. Dortmund was badly damaged in World War II and later beautifully rebuilt and modernised, converting its old factories into cultural centres. The Alter Markt is the meeting point for local residents and the square is home to two of the most important breweries in Dortmund. Stroll down Friedensplatz, and shop on the Westenhellweg, the main shopping street.
