06/05/12 - Although down from its peak by over half a million, passenger numbers at Dortmund Airport have necessitated plans to increase the airport's capacity by extending the operational hours of its runway and beginning work on increasing the size of its terminal. The work, currently underway, is expected to take several years to complete and passengers may experience some disruption during that time.

Dortmund has canal links to the North Sea and it is the route of the canal that travels through the flat lands of the Ruhr and North Rhine-Westphalia that attract tourists to the area. Whether hiring a barge for a week’s leisurely journey or to fish or canoe on the canal, there is much to be said for time spent on the waterway.

If you want a faster pace of life then hiring a car and driving the canal’s route through fertile agricultural land, past industrial centres and contrasting woodland will give you great memories of this part of Germany.
