You love the great outdoors? No problem! The preconception of a grey, sooty Ruhrgebiet isn't true of Dortmund: almost half of the city consists of parks, forests, fields and meadows. Even the City Centre has its green oases and fit people could easily walk through the extensive forests all the way to Hesse.
In need of relaxation for body and soul? Then Dortmund, the city of roses, parks and wild animals, is the perfect place.
