Market has already operated in the 12th century in this square, this place is now called the Alter Markt (Old Market). Nowadays town merchants and tradesmen don't display their wares here, but it remained a popular shopping area, and is home to numerous shops, boutiques, and galleries, as well as cafés and restaurants. Historical highlight of the square is the Neo-Renaissance building of the Old Civic Hall (Altes Stadthaus). A notable feature of the building's façade is the large eagle, which is the symbol of Dortmund city.
The construction work of the oldest church in Dortmund started in the 13th century and wasn't completed until the 15th century. Its 104 m tall tower was referred to as the "Miracle of Westphalia" for centuries. The church was built on a strategic place, where the historic road from Cologne to Bremen and the Westphalian commercial road crossed. The building was damaged due to an earthquake in 1661, so the tower was rebuilt but this time it was completed with a baroque ornament. Then it was heavily damaged again after the World War II. Today the tower can be visited, from the top you can see the beautiful attractions and huge green parks of Dortmund.
It is the largest green area in Dortmund, the park is 75 hectares in size, and every hundred meters there is something to see and do. The far away visible landmark of Dortmund is the TV Tower called Florianturm, briefly Florian. On the upper floor at 137 metres there is a revolving restaurant, which takes a full circle, so we don't even need to stand up to see the whole panorama of the city.
The Dortmund subway, partly on the surface and partly on the ground, has eight lines, which are marked U41 to U49.
