Sightseeing in Dortmund and in the near vicinity

You are interested in visiting and getting to know the city of Dortmund? You will like it!

Dortmund offers everything for a great experience: exciting industrial heritage, diversified museums, colorful vaudeville shows and theatres, all-round gastronomy and needless to say world class football and much more.

The Westfalenstadium (officially named Signal Iduna Park)

This is the home stadium of the BVB 09 - Borussia Dortmund football playing team and of thousands of excited supporters. An ideal combination of exitement and relaxation: The attractive landscape of parks and wood around the Hohensyburg with its panoramic view from the emperor-Wilhelm-monument over the Ruhr river's and the Lenne river's valley and the casino around the Hohensyburg. In the old town four churches give evidence of the more than thousand year’s old history of the city.

The Casino Hohensyburg

Every year more than one million people are seeking the thrill at the largest and most top-selling German gambling house, the Casino Hohensyburg. Everything revolves around the game. Even the architecture includes this theme. On three levels they offer the classical gamble, the Las Vegas World and a slot machine's hall.

The four city churches

Quite a few treasures are lying undisturbed in the churches, like the „golden wonder of Dortmund“ at St. Petri. 30 reliefs with 633 gold-plated figures carved in oak-timber narrate the Passion history. Besides the altar of the Dortmund master craftsman Conrad von Soest one of the most beautiful drawings of the Middle-Age is the focus at St. Marien. To the top of St. Reinoldi belfry there are 207 steps – for a terrific panoramic view. The only Catholic church of the city, the Propstei Church, shows with its panel painting at the high altar a real masterwork of Derick Baegerts.
