Lake PHOENIX Dortmund - Relaxing hours on the waterside

If you like to spend relaxing hours at the water, you are exactly right at PHOENIX Lake in Dortmund. The lake in Dortmund's Hörde district offers you not only relaxation on an area of 1.2 kilometres long and 320 metres wide, but also a lush culinary landscape. In the harbour area of PHOENIX Lake, not only sailors and water sports enthusiasts get their money's worth: Here numerous cafés and restaurants await you, which not only pamper you with a great lake view, but also provide for an enjoyable stopover. The artificial lake in Dortmund is also a perfect destination for a long walk. Don't miss the ascent to the Kaiserberg, an artificial heap in the east of the lake. From here you have a fantastic view of the water and the city, especially at the "blue hour" and at sunset.

High up and so close to the sky

Those who want to go even higher will find the 64 metre high Skywalk in the immediate vicinity of Lake PHOENIX on the grounds of the former Phoenix West smeltery. During a guided tour you can follow the course of a disused gas pipeline and climb up to the former blast furnace of the smelting works. At the top you will be rewarded with a breathtaking view of Dortmund's south.
