Send a Parcel to Dortmund, Germany
The 8th largest city in Germany, Dortmund is home to 572,000 people, with some 5.1 million living in the surrounding Ruhr area. Indeed the river Ruhr flows to the South of the city. The extensive coal mining and steel making that the area is famed for make good use of the Dortmund Port, which uses the Dortmund-Ems Canal to reach the North Sea. Indeed the Dortmund Port is the largest canal harbour in Europe.
It is a very green city with around 50% of the city given over to waterways, parks and other green spaces throughout the city.
Weather wise it is a case of mild Winters but also mild Summers. Steady rain is a key factor in Winter.
Dortmund is a major European crossroads for the Autobahn, and its central rail station is one of the largest for long distance traffic in the country. Dortmund's airport isn't that huge and is growing very rapidly, but as yet has no interconnecting rail or tram link to the city centre.
Tourist sites to see are the Museum of Art and Cultural History, which details the history of the Ruhr district and Dortmund life for the past 300 years, and the Steinwache Memorial and Museum. The Steinwache museum is the former Gestapo HQ and has a memorable exhibit of the war years.
When it comes to sport then we could hardly fail to mention the famous Borussia Dortmund, who are Champions League regulars, and previous European championship winners.
For shopping then it’s hard to beat Dortmund's Christmas market, which is one of Germany's largest, and home to the Worlds largest Christmas tree.
