How Far from?
Dortmund is renowned for being a centre of hi-tech industries. With a population of 60,000, Dortmund was once nothing but a village when it first appeared in 100 AD. Built on the river Ruhr, it is home to the biggest European canal port.

Sadly, Dortmund suffered during the Second World War, however it is still possible to glimpse the city’s medieval past by strolling through the centre. The ring roads even follow the route of the old city wall.

The Reinoldikirche, a church dating back to the 13th century, contains a wooden altar with 633 carved oak figures. There are various castles in Dortmund that history fans will appreciate, and other places worth visiting are the Opera House, Signal Iduna Park which is home to the local football team, and the RWE tower.
