City Overview

Dortmund lies in the east of the Rhein-Ruhr Region. It is one of the main centers of the Rhein-Ruhr Metropolitan Region as well as main city of the Westphalia Region. It has been an industrial town for over two centuries and is still greatly influenced by the plant manufacturing industry. It is also famous for its breweries, offering ten different beer brands.

Dortmund has been a trading center since the Middle Ages. The so-called Hellweg, an important route for long-distance trade, crossed through Dortmund. It is the eponym for today’s major high street Westenhellweg, which is one of the most highly frequented high streets in Germany. Here, the Thier Galerie shopping center with 41,300 sq m complements the retail offer of the high street. Other high streets of interest are Ostenhellweg, Brückstrasse and Kleppingstrasse.
