Dortmund
The Essential
An Imperial City since 1220, Dortmund flourished during the Middle Ages, but the Thirty Years War was to leave deep scars and the town's population dwindled. Boom time came in the mid-19C with the industrial revolution when, thanks to its location in the central Ruhr, the city's fate was closely linked to coal, steel and beer. Today the service sector plays an important role.
