Dortmund is an independent city in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It is in the middle part of the state and is considered to be the administrative, commercial and cultural center of the region. It is the 8th largest city in Germany. Founded in 882, it is only in the 13th to 14th centuries that it became the "chief city" of the region. After the Thirty Years' War the city decreased in significance until the onset of industrialization. The city then became one of Germany's most important coal, steel and beer centers until the 1970s. Its main attractions include several wonderful churches, great museums of art and local culture, a few Renaissance castles, and great parkland.
