From a cable car to a rotating restaurant, you'll get a taste of everything amid beautiful gardens at Westfalenpark. The Florianturm restaurant offers 360-degree views of the gardens and city.

  • Beautiful and, most importantly, fun Park! Just so you can see the geese roam parrots, as well as visit the mine, protein shake and have a great time. I was in February and in bad weather, but the Park still liked the most calm and quiet place. Ideal for a relaxing break. Entrance fee paid to 1.5 euros. On the territory of the park there is a toilet

  • Hello dear readers, today the Westfalenpark Dortmund... Park located near this downtown is an entry subject area, which was designed for the Federal garden show for the first time in 1959. Since then, two more German Federal horticultural show took place, the last 1991. A Park facility, which focuses on forming the 220 meters at the time highest German building, the Florian Tower, was built on the grounds of the old Emperor William Grove, the Bush mill Park, a landfill and overgrown allotment systems (source this sentence: Wikipedia). For more info on the Florian Tower, please read the relevant trip Advisor rating. Within the area are several areas of topics, from the stone garden ponds, roses areas, and much more. This different snacks and localities invite you linger as simple lawns to chill out. For adventurers also sand plants with different features are especially for children and young families. Which, whether small or large, "to", can also, with the narrow-gauge railway leading through the Park, to collect impressions about its diversity. Summary: I'm glad the Park dating back to 1959, was repeatedly renovated and brought to new highs. Somehow, his age can be noted however in some corners. However, even this has a certain charm and a varied atmosphere gives the entire Park. The areas seem to me as always maintained and show up depending on the season of their changing glory. I like the Westfalen Park, even if he is subject to entry. This mainly because it serves as the green lung of the Dortmund city centre! So come by and make yourself a picture! I think it's worth! Thank you for your interest and for your attention!
