CityTour in Dortmund

Explore the big city of the metropolitan area Rhine-Ruhr

Coal, steel, beer and soccer - that's what Dortmund is known for far beyond the city limits. But the city has a lot more to offer. Especially after the end of coal mining and the steel industry, the city underwent an enormous structural change and is now home to numerous insurance, cultural and sports institutions. Additionally, six universities are located within the city limits.

Go on a journey through Dortmund's history with our HopOn-HopOff bus tour and experience the structural change the city has gone through first hand. Discover the highlights of the city with Westfalenpark and stadium, the former steelworks PHOENIX and the resulting PHOENIX lake, Rombergpark and the German Football Museum. Get off at one of our 13 stops and explore the city on your own. Via headphones you will learn a lot of interesting facts about Dortmund.
