Westfalenhalle Dortmund – concerts and events

Max Schmeling and Pink Floyd have played here. Freddie Mercury has too. And Herbert Grönemeyer as well of course. Why not come and visit the legendary Westfalenhalle Dortmund too. Lots of bands and other artists still enthuse about the fantastic acoustics and unique atmosphere here.

The Westfalenhalle was originally built back in 1925 as a wooden structure but it was completely destroyed by bombing in May 1944. The new building to replace it was opened in 1952. Made of concrete, it has a huge self-supporting domed roof with no pillars inside to get in the way of the view of the stage. The Westfalenhalle is now a heritage protected building – and it is still produces a fantastic atmosphere at the concerts or the mega-events such as Mayday or at the ADAC Supercross which are put on there. 

You can get to the Westfalenhalle Dortmund fastest by taking the number U41 underground tram from the main railway station. There are also loads of parking spaces but, if BVB is playing at the same time and if you are not staying in a hotel, you should try to get there early, as things can get pretty busy.

You will find an events calendar and tickets for concerts and events at the Westfalenhallen website.
