Where to Stay

Where to Stay

Dortmund is a city with 62 neighbourhoods, which make up 12 administrative districts, with a wider population of around 2.4 million. Making your way around the city is pretty easy due to the excellent public transport connections, so wherever you stay you won’t be too far away from the main sights and attractions. If you’re the kind of person who likes to be at the very heart of all of the action, then one of the Innerstadt (central) districts may be the right place for you. Dortmund’s inner city suffered heavy bomb damage and had to be extensively rebuilt as a result. The outer districts, such as Kreuzviertel and Kaiserviertel are characterised by magnificent buildings and historic monuments, and will be the perfect place to stay if you want to enjoy beautiful architecture. The Nordstadt is the northern district, and is characterised by the diverse mix of cultures that live there.

Things To Do

Things to do

Whether you’re looking for history, great architecture, a vibrant and diverse culture of incredible shopping opportunities then Dortmund really has it all. Among the most notable historic buildings within the city, visitors will find the 13th-century Protestant church Reinoldikirche, the Church of Saint Peter, which is the oldest church in the city, the Altes Stadthaus office building, which was designed by master builder Friedrich Kullrich, and the medieval tower house of Husen Castle. In terms of what the city has to offer in the way of retail, Westenhellweg street is one of Germany’s most popular shopping destinations, with nearly 13,000 visitors per hour. Along this pedestrian-only street you’ll find some of the top level shops, department stores and fashion outlets. Dortmund also has a lot to offer in the way of German cultural attractions, with the German Football Museum, the Museum of Art and Cultural History and the Brewery Museum Dortmund.

Eating and Drinking

Eating and drinking

Dortmund has a respectable restaurant scene, presenting not only local specialities but also international cuisine. Traditional dishes from the local area include Westphalian Grünkohl (green cabbage and ham soup), Heaven and Earth (black pudding with stewed apples and mashed potato), Pfefferpotthast (peppered beef and onion Goulash) and Pumpernickel bread with Griebenschmalz (German lard with pieces of pork crackling). Other special dishes include a winter-warmer fried potato pancake, known as Reibekuchen, which is served with apple sauce, and the popular summer Dortmunder Salzkuchen, which are bread rolls with salt, meat, spices and onions. You’ll find a great selection of traditional German restaurants in the city centre, just a short distance from the Old Market (Alter Markt). Dortmund has a long history of brewing beer, and therefore it’s hardly a surprise that the city also has a healthy drinking culture. While many of the breweries are now closed, you can still find a great selection of fine German beer in most of the bars and pubs dotted around the city.
