Coliving in Dortmund

Dortmund in the federal state North Rhine-Westphalia is down to earth and welcoming to tourists and digital nomads alike. It is easy to find a coliving or coworking space in this formerly industrial city. The working-class ethos is still present in the city that is now more focussed on university education and technology. People are genuine in their interactions and characteristically German in their love for football, beer, and hearty food. Downtown you can smell sausages with curry sauce and fries that are sold in small booths. At the heart of Dortmund’s identity is a big yellow wall: the grandstand of the football club BVB Borussia Dortmund at Westfalenstadion. You don’t even have to be a sports fan; as soon as you wear the team colors of yellow and black, you will get a sense of belonging that is shared among this community.
