Prior to visiting the Westfalenpark in Dortmund, we considered the Wilhelmshöhe Park in Kassel to be the best park in Germany, but now we have the two leaders. You can enter the park from 9 am, and I strongly recommend that you do so, because only in the morning you can see the real beauty.

The Westfalenpark was founded in the late 19th century by wealthy residents of the city. The park was well organized, but during the war almost completely destroyed. It was restored in the 50s. In 1959, the park held a national horticultural exhibition. As a result, the Westfalenpark was expanded and better equipped.

There's even a large children's railway and a cableway in the park. You can also visit the observation deck on the Florianturm Tower. The tower is a landmark of the park and is visible from everywhere.

There's a lot of birds and small animals in the park. Curiously, they are not afraid of people and come close to you.

There's also a playground in the park. It's equipped pretty well, so we can only envy the German children.

In 1972, the German Rosary was opened in the park. More than 3,000 species of roses are cultivated here, and by this value the rosarium holds the third place in the world. Every year in June the rose festival is held here. All photos below were made in mid-October!
