    Went across to Dortmund a few weeks ago for there first game of the season against Gladbach. Was my first time across there and atmosphere was unreal the fans treated us brilliantly all because of a shared love of both clubs :icon_mrgreen:. Was just wanting to find out if anyone else on this had been across and there thoughts ? cheers

    Went for the germany scotland game and they couldnt get enough of celtic

    They were selling celtic scarfs at most stalss and had stickers in most of the toilets with celtic and dortmund handshakes

    The place is brilliant for the atmosphere and football experience

    There is a borrusia dortmund fan club in edinburgh

    Was hoping to get Dortmund in the draw for a trip over. Hard club not to like. I notice a lot of Dortmund shirts/badges in the pubs around Celtic park as well.

    I was over in March and am just getting sorted to book up for a similar time next year. I really like the city, nice but not very touristy. The stadium and fans are just amazing. When I was over I saw several fans with Celtic/Dortmund scarves.

    Lambert was one of my hero's when growing up him and burley where a brilliant paternship when we stopped 10 in a row. The group of dortmund fans we met all had celtic gear on that's how we started chatting one of the guys designs the stuff and gave me his hat and scarf that was sound of the guy :) things like that made the trip even better. Get what you mean about the city there is not much to do but a gd friendly atmosphere in it especially on match day.

    I was their 2 seasons ago and was just the same, fantastic experience and met some fantastic folk, I would add that the same trip I went to Schalke also who if you listen to some who like to paint everything either black or white claim they don't like us, the opposite was true and I had equally as good an experience with their fans as in Dortmund albeit the overall match experience in Dortmund was better but that in no way undermines what I saw in Gelesenkirchen which also pished on anything in the UK.

    Just about everything about Dortmund is top class and it's one of those must do experiences in my book along with Nou Camp, Belgrade Derby, Allianz Arena and Napoli.

    Interestingly I'm making my first visit to St Pauli next month and quite excited about that

    I agree about the city, I was expecting not much but ended up really enjoying it as nothing like Munich or even Koln where tourists ruin it to an extent.

    Particularly liked the big TV tower you could view the whole city from and it's surrounding park.

    You are also well situated for other places and went to games in Bochum, Gelsenkirchen when I was there and the train was free as in the same transport district, that was really good I thought

    Went over on a trip with a group my friend was in, to do with youth sports coaching. We met a big dortmund fan who was friends with a guy who was with us who put on a ancient celtic top he bought from the time they played the huns in the 90s and he showed us around.

    They put on a night for us in a local * teams boozers come fundraiser for the team. Was 30 euros entry which included a open bar! Think we drank the place dry! Donated my celtic barca ticket for behind the bar.

    Heading back to cologne about 3 in the morning was some experience. We were decked out in dortmund gear and had to change trains in dusseldorf. All sorts of growlers in dusseldorf until some guy challenged us in German. Said to him how we were celtic fans and the guy brightened up and started shaking our hands. Insisted we get pictures with him and his friends and bought us about 20 of they massive becks bottles from a cafe !

    Anyone thinking of going just do it, cologne, dusseldorf and dortmund are all nice cities and it is easy to get trains between them, cologne is best for a drink in my opinion loads of bars beside the river rhine and in a square beside it as well dortmund is a under rated city and alot of the locals seem to put it down as it isn't as nice as cologne for example, the tour of the stadium is really good though and very in depth
