Thier Galerie: Shopping pleasure in Dortmund, even when it’s raining

It is all set to rain all day, but this is no reason to sit at home and wait for it to pass. What better way to fill your day in Dortmund, than to go shopping! At the Thier Galerie you can browse to your heart’s content and treat yourself to some retail therapy. With around 160 different shops and boutiques to choose from, there is definitely something for everyone here. The location is also perfect, right in the city centre, beside the shopping streets, Westenhellweg and Kampstrasse. The centre also has its own multi-storey car park, so you don’t even have to get your feet wet.

There is nothing you can’t buy here: clothes, shoes, jewellery, make-up, books – you can shop till you drop and then take a break! Stop for a coffee and a donut at Dunkin’ Donuts, admire your purchases and off you go again! For fans of the local Dortmund football club, there is also a BVB store. Pick up some fashion bargains at the Primark store before you relax, as you are pampered by a hair stylist in one of several salons. The possibilities are endless.

Around 160 different shops, boutiques and restaurants await you in the Galerie. You will be spoilt for choice.

Food court and shopping centre on the site of a former brewery

On the top floor of Thier Galerie you will find a Food Court with an equally wide choice of delicious food to choose from. Whether you fancy a pizza, salad or a gourmet burger, you will certainly find something to tempt you. Some people come here just to eat and drink. And what could be more fitting, as Thier Galerie was built in the former Thier Brewery, a temple to Dortmund’s favourite drink – beer!

By the way: In 2012, the centre received the prestigious Across Award for its outstanding architecture. Thier-Galerie has a glass ceiling, for example, which floods the whole centre with light. Other eye-catching features are the outside terrace on the upper floor and the facade of the centre, which was inspired by a traditional trading company building.
