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.

  • Came for the Xmas/new year's. It was pretty with all the night lights. Would be nicer if it had more.
  • An awesome place to spend time with friends or family... The landscape is scenic and picturesque.. Unfortunately the Florian Tower is closed for renovation but will soon be open giving a 360° view of Dortmund
  • This Park is one of the largest inner-city parks in Europe, I was here with my family many many times :) it's really amazing mostly in the summer time, which presents thousands different types of roses, You have too see in in your own eyes :)
  • Its a very big park with entry fees of 3.5euro for adults. Walkable distance like 100metes from westfalenpark u ban station. It has mini train, ropeway nice restaurants, small bistro couple of children play areas and a very good kinder museum which is hightlight of park. There are lot of swans and ducks and other small creatures.
  • A great place to relax and some hours during the weekend. Has a lot of restaurant options, plus the tower, where you can get the view on the whole Dortmund
