Cheap flights to Dortmund

Looking to mix a bit of city sightseeing with some laid back rural charm? Then the German city of Dortmund could be just for you. 

Decked out with medieval architecture that will take your breath away, yet still pulsing with life and modernity, Dortmund should go to the top of your list of German best city break destinations. Once a centre of German industry, today this city is a blend of interesting sights, culture and charm that’ll keep you intrigued throughout the day and entertained well into the night. 



Plane buffs are in for a treat in Dortmund: the lovingly named “Red Baron” biplane, one of the oldest and largest in the world still flying, takes passengers on nostalgic sightseeing flights. Different routes surveying Dortmund and its surroundings from above are available each Sunday. From 109 euros per person, to book email service@hot-air-balloon.de.


Dating back to the 1920s, Dortmunder U was the city's first high-rise, and now houses an array of top museums and creative institutions, most notably the Museum Ostwall, showing works from the 20th and 21st century. There's video, sculptures and sound artwork and yes, it's also the place to go if you fancy a bit of Joseph Beuys.

Dortmund is immensely proud of its football tradition, embodied by local club Borussia Dortmund. It's only fitting that last autumn the German Football Museum opened its doors right in the city centre where you can immerse yourself in the history of German football, showcased in five different exhibition sections. There are memories of the country's iconic first World Cup victory in 1954 with the ball originally used taking centre stage, plus much more about the Bundesliga, World Cups and European Championships.

About 30 miles west of Dortmund, the Gasometer in Oberhausen is one of the Ruhr region's most impressive industrial monuments. The former gas holder was built in the late 1920s, decommissioned in the late 80s and converted into a stunning exhibition space. Just looking around is pretty awesome. The current (until 30 Dec) “Wonders of Nature” wildlife photography and film exhibition features a giant globe that seems to be floating. High-res satellite images are projected onto the globe and visitors can ride up in a panorama lift to the roof of the building for a jaw dropping view of our planet. (www.gasometer.de/en)
