May be good to know then that Dortmund is the third city in Germany when it comes to the number of train stations. This is mostly due to the multitude of railway companies that competed for lines in the coal and steel industry boom.

One (kinda) touristy thing to do in Dortmund is to take the "Emschertalbahn" line which departs at nn:32. Very quaint single-track line running through residents' back yards. Step off after 18 minutes at Bövinghausen and walk Jupiterstrasse through a model example of miners' homes to a model example of a colliery now made a museum (,7.331679&spn=0.007704,0.012403&t=h&z=16&iwloc=addr).

Have a nice stay
