Westfalenpark, Dortmund

4.4
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.

  • You can easily spend 1 day without boredom. in 1959, the Federal horticultural show took place there. Recommend dien Auffaht on the Floriantutm with the elevator 130 m above sea level. You will be rewarded with a beautiful view over Dortmund. The Park is rich in flowers and plants. on the Lake you can go boating.
