Anyone know any good English travel guides for Dortmund? I have been looking at the lonely planet guide for Germany but not sure if this will be Any help. Thanks
I'll be spending New Year's Eve in Germany and was planning to go to Dortmund. Are there any nice places to spend it? Clubs? Hotels? Also is it possible to travel back home to a nearby town early morning? How does the public transport run on that day? Is it better to maybe book a room in Dortmund itself?
I also thought that maybe other towns will be better than Dortmund, like Düsseldorf. I have read many Silvester offers online with party tickets ranging from 80-400 €. Should i get one of these or just go on the day?
Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thank you! :)
I will be stay at Arcadia Hotel Goldschmieding at Dortmund for 1 weeks. May i know any interested place near by for me to walk around?
I have some coworkers in Dortmund for a long term stay, and they haven´t found a laundry service. They can´t not comunicate in English or German so that doesn´t help. I have made a fast search in Google and nothing came in Dortmund city.
Do you know of any of those business? This is not the exact type of travel related question we use to see in this forum...but I need your help!
Probably I will have to visit Dortmund frecuently during the next year due to my work. I see it is only 300 km from Charleroi, and my home town is linked to Charleroi by RyanAir...so I would like to know if it is posible to move from Charleroi to Dortmund using public transport or I will have to rent a car every time?.
I don´t know if I should start searching at the belgian public transport or at the german system...Thank you for any help.
My girlfriend and I are going to the Dortmund/Schalke match at Signal Iduna Park on Nov 26. We have a flight leaving Brussels at 10:00 am the next morning. It seems the latest train leaves Dortmund at 5:37 pm (I think the match should end around the same time), and the earliest train on Nov 27 doesn't arrive in Brussels Centraal until 8:32 am, which cuts it pretty close. I've also tried to find some bus schedules but it seems they are even less accommodating for us than the trains.
Does anyone have any ideas on how we can get to Brussels airport in time for the flight? It seems like such a short distance so it must be possible. I would rent a car but I'd like to be able to drink a few beers in Dortmund.
Thanks for any responses.

I'll be in Ruhr next March for one single day and so I've only got time for one single sight. I want to do something linked to the region's history, so I tend to visit a sight, which have to do with mining. I googled the industrial heritages mentioned in the subject, so I am curious, which of these sights you would prefer.
Additionally I read, that Zeche Zollern was renovated in 2010. Is the job already done or will there be handicaps due to renovation?
BTW: I know, that only Zeche Zollern is directly in Dortmund, but as far as I realize moving by public transport is no problem at all in Ruhr.

My husband is going to a football match in the Signal Iduna Stadion in Dortmund and he's trying to decide which train to take for the return trip. Has anyone walked from the DB stop at the Signal Iduna Stadion from the stadium? It's quite close, judging from the map on the website, but is it more a matter of five minutes or rather 10/15 minutes?

Hi everyone, my wife and I will be staying in Dortmund for probably about 10 days in late June. I'm from rural Texas, and I enjoy cities but might like to also see some less crowded places in Germany. My question is, if I'm staying in Dortmund, can you suggest some places outside of town to visit that are smaller? Do community trains travel to these outlying places? Any other tips are welcome as well.

Hi there, we will be heading to Dortmund for a preliminary match btw Brazil and Japan on 22 June!!
We prefer not to take public transport with some 60000 crowd when the match finish at 2300. So, if anyone know there is any cheap accomodation located within 2km radius from the venue (Strobelallee 50. D-44139 Dortmund), please advice.
I've tried Ibis Dortmund City Hotel suggested by Fifa Worldcup organiser, it's fully booked unfortunately.
Or, what is the public transport service looks like after 2300? e.g convenience and security?
Any info is greatly appreciated!
