Dortmund ([ˈdɔɐ̯tmʊnt]; in Low German: Düörpm; in Latin: Tremonia, traditional Hispanic name) is a city in Germany located in the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia, is located in the Ruhr Region and is the eighth most Germany, with a population of 601,402 inhabitants (2018). It is located in the Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region and is considered the administrative, commercial and cultural center of the eastern Ruhr. The Ruhr River flows south of the city, and the small Emscher River crosses the municipality. The Dortmund-Ems channel also ends at the port of Dortmund, which is the largest European channel port, and has links from Dortmund to the North Sea. Dortmund is known as the "green metropolis" of Westphalia.
Founded around 882, Dortmund became an Imperial Free City. Throughout the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries it was the "main city" of the Rhine, Westphalia and the Dutch Circle of the Hanseatic League. After the Thirty Years War, the city was destroyed and its importance diminished until the beginning of industrialization. The city then became one of the most important coal, steel and beer production centers in Germany. Dortmund was one of the most bombed cities in Germany during World War II. The devastating bombings of March 12, 1945 destroyed 98% of the buildings in the city center. These bombings, with more than 1,110 aircraft, hold the record for a single target in World War II.
The region has adapted since the collapse of its centuries-old steel and coal industries and has moved to high-tech biomedical technology, microsystem technology and services. In 2009, Dortmund was classified as a Node city in the Innovative Cities Index published by 2thinknow is the most sustainable and digital city in Germany. Today, Dortmund is home to many cultural and educational institutions, including Dortmund Technical University and Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts, the International School of Administration and other educational, cultural and administrative facilities with more than 49,000 students .
