Dortmund Expat Events

Make the most of your Dortmund Expat Life

The center of the Rhein-Ruhr area offers an exciting intercultural experience for expats, starting with cultural highlights, like the ruins of the Kaiserpfalz Kaiserswert, the oldest structure in the city, the folkloristic festivities on the occasion of Germany’s Tag der deutschen Einheit, up to getting a taste of traditional roast pork with Knödel. The InterNations community helps you as an Dortmund expat to enjoy your expat stay in Germany to the fullest. Our members have already come across many of the questions you’ll have when starting your expatriate life in Dortmund and kindly offer you their assistance, from ʺAre inland flights or national trains the cheaper option to travel from Munich to Berlin?ʺ up to ʺIs an international driver's licence valid in Germany?ʺ.
