German Football Museum (Deutsches Fussball Museum)
Germany’s soccer legacy takes center stage at the German Football Museum (Deutsches Fussballmuseum) in Dortmund—a fitting tribute to the highs, lows, and cultural importance of the sport. Opened in 2015, the museum is packed with memorabilia, multimedia displays, and fun interactive exhibitions, making it a must for soccer fans.

The Basics

Divided into three sections, exhibitions at the German Football Museum are inspired by the game, and tickets offer full access. The First Half chronicles the numerous victories of the national teams—both men’s and women’s—with an impressive display of trophies, as well as some interesting commentary on football during different periods of Germany’s political history. The Second Half focuses on the various teams, fan culture, and football’s social significance, while the basement exhibition Extra Time lets fans loose on a football pitch.
