Program Description:

Living in Dortmund

Like almost no other German city, Dortmund has seen enormous change in recent years. The former 'steel city' has developed into a modern, cosmopolitan metropolis, known all over Europe as an innovative location for technological development. In the course of this structural change, new industries like IT, micro systems technology, and logistics have re-shaped Dortmund's corporate landscape.

The largest city in the Ruhr Valley – with nearly 600,000 inhabitants – also boasts extensive green areas and a high quality of life as well as a wide range of cultural and sporting opportunities. Everyone knows Borussia Dortmund. And that’s a good thing! However, Dortmund has far more to offer in the line of sport than just football. And if culture is your preference, Dortmund with its virtuoso concerts, excellent theater and new media art is definitely the place to be. With six universities and some 20 research institutions, over 50,000 students and more than 10,000 academic staff, Dortmund has one of the largest university campus areas in North Rhine-Westphalia.
