      My wife and I have a 5 hour (+ 2 hours for check-in) airport stop over on February 14. Can anyone recommend us a restaurant in central Dortmund for a relaxing lunch?

      Also, is there a left luggage office at the airport to store our case? And, we will need to be back at the airport for around 18:15 - how long should we allow for a shuttlebus journey at this time in the evening

      Silvester in Dortmund

      by blackshadow23 Online Now Nov 20, 2013 at 12:57 AM


      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! :)

      Getting from Dortmund to Brussels late at night

      by JJfromNJ Online Now Oct 19, 2011 at 1:09 PM

      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.

      Zeche Zollern, Zeche Zollverein or Deutsches Bergbaumuseum

      by schmechi Online Now Jan 17, 2011 at 11:49 PM

      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.

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.
