What is the Dortmund Football Museum?

The Dortmund Football Museum, which opened in 2015, was constructed to create a home for the memories of the past and future of German Football to be stored in.

The facility's main focus is of course iconic, historic moments from the country's long and illustrious past within the sport, however, it is far more versatile than just that.

It strives to be a leading force in cultural and societal topics and uses football as a tool for discussion in important issues every year. In essence, it is a multi-faceted home of German football, offering an array of experiences to cater for the vast majority of visitors.

Where is the Dortmund Football Museum?

The site is located close to the city centre of Dortmund, just south of Dortmund Central Station, making use of an area that used to be a bus station in the past.

If you are one of the many lucky fans who will be in Dortmund for England vs Netherlands in the Euro 2024 semi-final, then it is also located fairly close to Signal Iduna Park, making it an excellent pre-game activity. The journey would take just 15 minutes by public transport and would require just one short train ride from Dortmund HBF Station to the Signal Iduna Park Station.

The Dortmund Football Museum's exact location is Platz der Deutschen Einheit 1, 44137 Dortmund, Germany.

Iconic exhibits at Dortmund Football Museum

As you would expect from a nation as successful as Germany, there are plenty of famous objects to see at the facility. Two fairly recent additions come from the 2014 World Cup, in which Germany were the eventual winners.

Thanks to the incredible generosity of Mario Gotze, the museum houses the exact boot with which he scored the winner in the final against Argentina, as well as the goal of the year award the German received for the strike.

However, the site has plenty more to offer than just iconic objects. Over the years, famous German icons have been known to give presentations at the museum, including Thomas Tuchel who gave a lecture at the facility in 2017.

There really is something for everyone.
