Dortmund city breaks are not complete without a visit to the shops and beer houses which reside in the centre of the city on the Hellweg, representing the traditions of this city and region. Renowned for its green spaces and stunning scenery, Dortmund's many parks and woodlands, such as the Westfalenpark and the Rombergpark, are perfect backdrops for the medieval churches which line the streets of the city, the most famous of which are Reinoldikirche and the Marienkirche. From the summit of the Hohensyburg Castle, the Ruhr and Lennetal Valleys can be fully appreciated with panoramic views of the area.

The city's many museums and attractions draw in thousands of visitors each year. The Ostwall Art museum, the Natural History Museum and the Museum of Art and Cultural History all provide visitors with a thorough cultural experience of the city. The surrounding valleys and forests are popular with hikers and can be explored from Dortmund and Cologne, where we have many accommodation opportunities for those taking Cologne City Breaks.

If your Dortmund city break involves plenty of shopping, you will fall in love with the various stalls and shops selling handmade seasonal gifts, toys and Christmas decorations throughout December. Although, if you are just looking to take in the festivities, there are many outdoor bars selling warm glasses of mulled wine with live music events attracting those who choose to dance the night away.

Westenhellweg

Here you can find internationally-known department stores like C&A and Karstadt.

Brückstraße

This street houses some of the most popular boutiques and fashion shops of Dortmund. There's also the chance to have coffee in one of the numerous cafes after or during your shopping trip.

Propstei Arcaden

This shopping centre is located just south of the Westenhellweg and not far from the Opera House.

Dortmund was the hotspot for beer-brewing in Germany for forty years. Today, it still has some of the country's best bars and nightclubs.

Wenkers am Markt (Betenstraße 1): This bar is a former brewery that started in 1340.

zuHouse.Club (Martinstraße): The zuHouse.Club is a Dortmund nightclub hosting international clubbing community.  There is a great mixture of music, such as house and dance.

Blauer Raum (Martinstraße): The Blauer Raum means "Blue Room" in English but is ironically painted pink. This nightclub is more an art-museum-and-dance-club, as the walls are decorated with large paintings from Old Master artists.
