In the west of Germany is lacated the North Rhine-Westphalian city Dortmund. It belongs to the Rhine-Ruhr region and has about 600,000 inhabitants. What was known as "Ruhrpott" at the time of the rain coal mining underground was now an attractive and livable location. The once "Ruhrpott" is today shining in new splendor, so also Dortmund. Together with the other towns of the former coal mines, the town forms the cultural capital of Europe. The machinery and plant construction, the company KHS GmbH, also machine and plant engineering, the machine factory Rothe Erde as the leading manufacturer of large-diameter bearings, breweries and many other companies are today the economic bases. The areas of computer science, banking and insurance are also strongly represented here. In addition, there is the University of Dortmund and the technology center with the adjoining technology park, where numerous companies have settled.
Visiting a fair and visiting the city. While an interesting exhibition is being held here, it would be a shame not to get to know Dortmund and the surrounding area. A comfortable hotel room is located in the entire city area and in the outside districts. The trade show Westfalenhallen Dortmund offers the right event for every need. From the German Brieftauben exhibition to the international cake fair Cake & Bake Germany to the German Comic Con the offers are very diverse. There are several different trade fairs every month. This is why it is advisable at any time to visit the city through an early booking in a comfortable hotel. From the cozy hotel room the area can be explored and both the historical as well as the modern impressions can be absorbed.
Dortmund, the past and the present. Everywhere the guest meets historical monuments of the near past. From the hotel, the many sights can be visited by public transport. Since the historical center of the city was largely destroyed during the war by air raids, modern buildings can be seen here, with very few exceptions. The post-war architecture changes with modern buildings such as the city and state library with the IWO-Hochhaus, the RWE Tower and the Sparkassen-Hochhaus. Beside the churches there are castles, water gates and castles. Fortunately not all mines from the Ruhrpott time have been demolished. For example, the Zeche Zollern in Bövinghausen has been listed as a historic monument and partly as a museum. For shopping, there are many possibilities in Dortmund, including the trendy Brückstraße district and the pedestrian mile Hellweg. The nightlife takes place for example at the Alter Markt and in many further locations with cozy pubs, bars and clubs.
