There are several buses that connect to the airport. An airport express bus from the main train station is a thirty-minute journey. There’s also a bus from Holzwickede train station that takes five minutes and runs every fifteen to twenty minutes.

Shopping

Ironically, the shopping highlight of this German airport is Leonidas Confiserie Dr√ľke, a Belgian candy shop! It has been here for eight years and offers a large variety of chocolates, truffles, pralines and other delectable delights.

Duty-free shopping is also available, where you can pick up cosmetics, perfumes and alcohol

Food & Drink

The airport restaurant is the main feature at Dortmund. It is possible to eat here even if you don’t have a plane to catch. They provide a la carte dining and will also accept reservations.

If you’re in a bit more of a rush, there are four different bistros as well, some of which open at 4 a.m.

Fun Facts
