Westfalenpark, Dortmund
(4.4/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
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. Ride the cable car for an overall impression, then stop by the rose garden to see 3,000 varieties of roses. Attractions change with the season, and you can sometimes enjoy concerts or listen to German tales. If you'd like to visit the playground with your children, bring a second set of clothes--everyone might get wet. Arrange to visit Westfalenpark and other attractions in Dortmund using our Dortmund itinerary builder.

  • Lovely park in the spring, summer, and early autumn. In the winter with a 1.50 euro regentje rain is not quite worth it. So you have to have good weather. And the accommodations must be open. Otherwise it is what boring.

  • Great big park. Perfect on sunny days. You walk through the gardens and the kids can play in big outdoor climbing gyms. Cafes to grab food and drink. Often markets are held here too
  • A little park with a gastronomical garden that will cost you. 6 euro + 3.50 tower And the tower is extra the garden price.
  • Great park for kids and adults. Especially if you get a yearly pass.
  • Good place for relaxation!
