    If Internations members in Paderborn are interested it is possible to get to the Soest Christmas market on a shared DB/ERB ticket; much cheaper per person than an individual one.

Situated in the center of the Rhine-Ruhr region, Dortmund has long been a city of industry. Dortmund built much of its economic success on coal, steel, and beer, but nowadays it has become a hub for high-tech industries, and opportunities are abound for expats with the right skills. Soccer is a major passion in the city thanks to highly successful team Borussia Dortmund. For expats who love sport, the newly opened German Football Museum is a must-see. The InterNations Dortmund expat community regularly holds social events and runs a number of interest-based groups. Join our network today and discover this thriving city with like-minded expats.
