Westfalenpark, Dortmund

4.3
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.

  • Today was the 60 year existence of the park. I expected some activities, but this was very hard. I find the park not so beautiful and the time there is exactly what dwell. 3.5 Euro per person inside there is another tower to visit this cost 2.50 euros per person. There is another train this costs 3 euros for an adult and 1 euro for a child.

  • Changing events. In the park there are always new plants to discover. The "Division Garden" beer garden is an ideal place for a holiday evening beer in warm weather.

  • Very lovely place and very tidy! It's great for Pokemon Go as they had a safari event there a while back and loads of friends went! Very big and accommodating park and nice wildlife! Very nice to get out and get some fresh air in Germany! I would happily return again in the future and hopefully it will be even nicer! I'd love to go in the summer when its nice and warm.
  • Nice relaxing place in Dortmund. It has a great viewpoint which cobvers the entire Dortmund area.
  • We went in the middle of the week in early March so many of the beer gardens that were supposed to be open, were not. The park was in their pre-spring planting season and much of he paths were blocked for repairs and such. The resturant we ate at in the park however, was good. For a single day's activity in Dortmund, I highly suggest taking the time. Plan to visit in late spring or summertime.
  • It's end of March and winter is about to get over. Flowers have started blooming and the landscape in the park is just mesmerizing and waoooh...
  • Nice park for a walk, i recommend to visit the tower. Amazing view of the city.
