From football history to the art of brewing beer
No other city in the Ruhr Area has been influenced by football as much as Dortmund. Here you can get a first-hand breather of some Bundesliga air during a guided tour of the stadium in the Signal-Iduna-Park, learn everything about Dortmund's traditional club in the Borusseum or even experience the entire history of German football up close in the German Football Museum. Closely linked to football is also the art of beer. During a guided tour through the Brewery Museum Dortmund you will learn (and get to taste) everything about the city's liquid gold. Are you looking for cultural experiences? Then Dortmund is the perfect place for you too. From the Dortmunder U to the Museum for Art and Art History to the DASA Working World Exhibition, everyone will find what they are looking for. Of course, a shopping stroll or a relaxing break in a cosy café should also not be left out. We recommend a stop in the trendy Kreuzviertel with its pretty shops, bars and cafés. You see: There is definitely no way around Dortmund.
