Dortmund is a city of opposites. On the one hand, it is an ancient city with over a thousand years of history. On the other hand, the architecture introduced after the Second World War creates the impression of a young and modern city. For generations it was considered a city that concentrates the heavy industries of Germany, such as iron, steel and coal mining, but today it brands itself as a city of high-tech and advanced sciences. It boasts many universities and scientific institutions, and on the other hand it has a cultural and sports scene that would not put many European capitals to shame.
This is why Dortmund is suitable for almost all types of tourists. Whatever your age, your tourist preferences or even your budget, Dortmund probably has something to offer.
If you are shopping-oriented, you will be happy to know that Dortmund has a lot to offer in the field. In almost every one of its neighborhoods you will find shopping centers and boutiques galore, certainly in the neighborhoods visited by tourists more often.
Many of the tourists choose to take a hotel in the modern city center area, the center in which are fashion boutiques from all over the world, large shopping centers, trade and employment centers. Since many of the visitors to Dortmund do so to promote their business, the city center area offers quite a large number of high-end hotels, which require a budget accordingly. This part of the city is well connected to its other regions, as well as to the rest of the other cities in Germany. Keep in mind that since Dortmund is considered the economic capital of West Germany, it will be difficult for you to escape the industrialized atmosphere, whether you choose to take a hotel in the city center or not.
If you prefer to feel the history of Dortmund under your feet, then the recommendation is to look for a hotel or guest house in the Kreuzviertel, the historic district of the city. Here you will find many of the city’s most iconic sites, as well as plenty of boutiques, pubs and restaurants of all shapes and sizes. On top of that, the district boasts several beautiful parks where you can spend a sunny afternoon. The Cross Quarter, being so central and so sought after by tourists, tends to be on average more expensive than other parts of Dortmund.
And finally, if you are interested in combining a relatively quiet neighborhood with the history of the city and the region, the recommendation is to choose a place to stay in the stylish and classic Kaiserviertel. This neighborhood, with its European houses and uniform facades, will make you think you’ve gone back in time a hundred or two hundred years ago. You will find here several historical monuments, as well as spacious villas of European aristocratic families who lived here in the past. The style of the neighborhood mainly attracts older travelers, which leads to the fact that most of the accommodation here is more suitable for travelers on a high budget rather than backpackers.
It will not be a surprise if we say that the busiest season in Dortmund is the summer season. The relatively comfortable weather and the vacation from educational institutions make the months of June to August particularly convenient for a trip for families and older travelers alike. Accordingly, the main events of the city are also scheduled for the summer, in order to allow as many tourists as possible to participate in them. An example of this is the famous Juicy Beats festival, which hosts music performances in many styles, including pop, rock, reggae and more. Every year, this festival, held at the end of July, is attended by about fifty thousand people.
The high demand for places to stay (and other tourist services) in the summer months, leads both to the fact that hotel prices will be relatively expensive, and to the fact that the load on the tourist sites and points of interest will be high. If you are planning to come to Dortmund in the summer, the recommendation is that you close everything you can as far in advance as possible.
If you have the opportunity and the sporting spirit, you can come to Dortmund in winter. In the months of November to about mid-March (when the period of Christmas and the beginning of the new civil year is unusual) the city experiences a significant decrease in the number of visitors, although the hard core of business people is not affected by the weather. The decrease in the number of visitors lowers the prices of hotels and guesthouses, so the chances of finding affordable vacation packages in hotels that at other times were out of your budget increase significantly.
