Find Out More about Life in Dortmund

Situated in the center of the Rhine-Ruhr region, Dortmund has long been a city of industry. Dortmund built much of its economic success on coal, steel, and beer, but nowadays it has become a hub for high-tech industries, and opportunities are abound for expats with the right skills. Soccer is a major passion in the city thanks to highly successful team Borussia Dortmund. For expats who love sport, the newly opened German Football Museum is a must-see. The InterNations Dortmund expat community regularly holds social events and runs a number of interest-based groups. Join our network today and discover this thriving city with like-minded expats.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world.

InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world.
