About
Although the Botanical Garden Rombergpark in Dortmund was not officially opened until 1929, the actual one goes back to the beginning of the 19th century. The history of the place itself is full of intresting stories: from the high Middle Ages, through Napoleon's maneuver to modern times. From pig races and secret love affairs to crazy plant collectors. It was always exciting about the small piece of land on the Schondelle. Small? With over 680,000 square meters, the Botanical Garden, which mainly only called Rombergpark, is the largest of its kind in Germany and one of the largest in the world. Even today you can see the efforts and the lucky hand of its previous directors in the collections. Each director and each era has left a special signature. Huge trees - more than 200 years old - and rare, sometimes subtropical plant species make the visitor forget to linger on the eastern edge of the area called Ruhrpott. A firework of colors awaits the visitors from February to October.

It is very easy to visit Rombergpark. The metro to the station Rombergpark is running every 10 minutes (Monday-Saturday) and every 15 minutes (Sundays, holidays) from the central station (direction Hacheney). From the metro station, it is less than 5 minute walk to the park. It is a good place to take a walk during spring/summer, enough benches to sit on. There is a cafe and also a greenhouse. At the end of the park, there is the entrance to the zoo. There is no entrance fee to the park and it is open 24/7 everyday! :) If you are in Dortmund and do not know what to do and the weather is good, I would go there.

Dortmund is a former industrial citiy in the Ruhrgebiet. One doesn't expect it to be green. But you will find out - that is not true. One of my favorite parks is the Rombergpark. Although it is not in the the City centre you can reach it quite easily with the U-Bahn (U 49 dir. Hacheney Exit "Rombergpark"). The park itself has beautiful trees in the Aboretum. The squirels play araound joyfully - make sure to take some nuts with you - and you will always find a bench to sit on or a spot on the lawn in one of the clearings to relax. There is a greenhouse too with a pool full of turtles. For refreshments you can stop in the Café Orchidee. There are interesting greenhouses to visit. These are the only ones which charge an entrence-fee (2 € p.p.).
Adjorning the park is the Dortmund Zoo specialized in the fauna of South America (they have lions and tigers too, though). Great place for children, couples etc.

This place must be looking exceptionally great during autumn and spring. I went there during August, to witness the lush green and warm environment of this park. It is easily accessible through the tube. The park entry is free. It has got option for everyone: family, solo, joggers, you name it. I went with my family, the kids loved it. The place is clean and safe, and the beauty is breathtaking. We went again with our picnic bag and had a great time. There is ample space for family to sit around, kids to play and run. The birds, fish, and turtles in the small lake/pond will keep the kids busy. The greenery and biodiversity is amazing. It is a true feast for your eyes.

When visiting the Dortmund Zoo don't miss Romberg Park next to it. It is a romantic botanical garden and arboretum with many rare trees you find only here.

Very nice in spring when most trees bloom.

Close to public transport, always worth the trip. I love walking around here anytime a year but highlight is in spring with all these beautiful bushes and flowers - sorry I don't know any names.

Yes, it is must visit place of Dortmund. If you very keen on biology - it is paradise. If you just love to walk around in the great park - it is the place. Good paths, great trees, bushes, flowers. Best place to spent time with kids, because there are the kids place too. Worth to visit.
