This summer I had the pleasure of visiting Dortmund, Germany with Rail Europe via Thalys. I had never been to Germany before but this was definitely a great trip. I spent most of my time here walking the streets, eating food, exploring places I had never been to, and just taking in all the German culture.
I probably would not have heard of Dortmund right away if it weren’t for the stop on Thalys. I am so happy I know about it now because I would go back in a heartbeat! The people were incredibly friendly and hospitable, the food was to die for, the art and music scene are amazing, and the city was easy to manage as a foreigner.
Here are my photos that prove Dortmund should be on your bucket list!
- Taking the train to Dortmund was very easy – the station is easy to manage as well.
- The city is pretty flat – so bring your walking shoes
- Public transportation is easy to use
- Metro available
- Plenty of street food of all kinds
