Dortmund is not a major travel destination in Germany: it's known more for its football and beer rather than culture. The Museum am Ostwall has moved into a former 1920s beer brewery that has been thoroughly modernized and is on a ring road at the...More

Website says Paul Klee stuff there. 6 year old has studied Klee at school and is therefore excited about visit. Ask staff where the Klee is. They have none! Somewhat disappointed.
