Westfalenhalle Dortmund

In its inner and outer shape the Westfalenhalle, finished in 1952, has its roots in the elliptical form of a cycling track. The roof and wall structure, innovative at the time, consists of a steel structure with a
self-supporting domed roof. A glazed steel skeleton encloses the outer wall. The 100m long, 80m wide and 32m high hall provides space for up to 20,000 spectators. The floor coverings inside can be changed within a few hours for, e.g., riding or ice-skating.
Over the years, the Westfalenhalle has been extended by another nine exhibition buildings and as Westfalenhalle 1 is now the centre’s centre. In conjunction with the former Westfalenstadion and Westfalenpark, the Westfalenhallen form an urbanistic unit.
