Culture of Dortmund. Places to visit - old town, temples, theaters, museums and palaces

Without a doubt, Dellwig House is one of the most interesting architectural sights of Dortmund. This beautiful castle on water was built in the beginning of the 13th century. At that time it belonged to a noble family. During its centuries old history the castle has been repeatedly destroyed and rebuilt, so now the facade of the building is an interesting mix of different architectural styles. The main building is known as the oldest part of the architectural complex. The construction of that building took place in the middle of the 17th century.

St. Johannes Baptist Church is a beautiful religious building. Just like many of historic buildings of the city, the church was seriously damaged during the Second World War. Thanks to construction works that were carried out immediately after the end of the war, the beautiful church of the 14th century was restored. The only part of the building, which has been preserved during the war, is the east wing of the church.
Dortmund is home to a huge variety of museums. Museum of art and culture has always remained one of the most beloved places for tourists from all over the world. The location of the museum is also very interesting - a beautiful building of the early 20th century. The halls of the museum feature a rich collection of ancient sculptures, paintings, antique furniture and crafts. You will find a no less interesting collection of antique paintings in the Museum of Ostwall (this is the name of one of the city’s districts). The exposition contains approximately 2,500 paintings and features works by not only talented painters of past centuries, but also modern masters. The museum will be surely liked by those people, who are interested in modern painting. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

Fans of gastronomic tourism are recommended to visit not only numerous restaurants of Dortmund, but also Cookbook Museum. The opening of this interesting institution was held in 1988. The museum contains a great collection of antiques that are in one way or another connected with the process of cooking. However, old cookbooks are the main exhibits of the museum. Some of these books are very old and were made a few centuries ago. Steinwache Museum is located in the old prison building. Here visitors will find out a lot of interesting information about the period of the Second World War. Among the exhibits present in the museum you will be able to see numerous historical documents, archives, and other artifacts. Guests are even offered to walk in prison cells and look into torture chambers, the design of which has remained unchanged through years. Despite its gloomy past Steinwache Museum is traditionally very popular among tourists.
