… we, the ten of us in the DORTMUNDtourism Team, are full of enthusiasm and absolutely dedicated to making Dortmund more well-known as a travel destination with all its many aspects, special qualities and quirky characteristics. We want to use our stories, photos, films and campaigns to inspire people from Germany and abroad to come and visit our wonderful Dortmund.

We are absolutely certain that Dortmund is well-worth a visit – even if you are not coming to see the football or are on a business trip. Don’t worry, that doesn’t mean we don’t like football, on the contrary, we are almost all true Borussen – as BVB football club followers are called. And we, more than anybody, know that this is a great place to work and visit.

Dortmund has so much to offer. We might not have a typical picturesque Old Quarter or loads of palaces and castles, and Dortmund definitely isn’t at the seaside: But we have got all it takes to make it the perfect place for a city trip: fascinating museums, amazing concerts and festivals, moving theatre performances, honourable industrial heritage sites, a diverse gastro and pub scene and impressive shopping experiences. You can also switch off and relax here – almost half of the city is made up of parks, woods, meadows and fields. Night-owls can immerse themselves in the vibrant city nightlife, sporty people have all the facilities they could want… and there is so much more to see and do and experience here.

At visit.dortmund.de we want to tell you about all this – from different viewpoints and using different media. It will be worth visiting this site again and again as it will be changing almost every day. Otherwise we hope to see you on social media, at trade fairs, exhibitions, events – or maybe even in person in Dortmund.

Hope to see you soon!

All the best from
Your DORTMUNDtourism Team
