The climate of Dortmund (Germany)
Dortmund is a large city located in the western part of Germany in the Bundesland (Federal State) of North Rhine Westphalia in the Ruhr Area. Dortmund is the largest city in the Ruhr Area and is one of the ten largest cities in Germany. It is an old city. The first records date back to the 9th century. However, it is probably much older. Because of heavy bombardments during WWII not many remains of its long history can be admired. Nowadays Dortmund is one of the most important railway junctions in Germany. Borussia Dortmund play their home matches in the city. This club was the winner of the Bundesliga several times and won the Champions League in 1997 and were the runners up in 2013. Dortmund has a moderate maritime climate strongly influenced by the warm Gulfstream in the North Sea despite the fact that the city is located in the interior. Because Dortmund is an urban area temperatures are higher here during the summer than in rural areas. Winters are cool. However, longer periods with subzero temperatures are uncommon.
