The Rombergpark, is an extensive municipal botanical garden and arboretum in Dortmund. With its total area of 68 hectares the Rombergpark is one of the largest botanical gardens in the world. It is always freely open. There are many trails to follow and many ways to go. You can spot birds like Eurasian Green Woodpecker, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Crested Tit, Short-toed Treecreeper, Stock Dove or European Robin. By the little sea, you can get very close to birds like Canada Goose or Eurasian Moorhen. It is also a good spot for a Common Kingfisher.



In the north of the park is a big car park. Click on the P in the map to get directions to the parking. From the parking you can walk through the area. An even better option is to explore the area with a bike, because you can see more birds and more of the area.
