Originally opened in 1925, is one of the main fair attractions in Germany with 9 halls that attract over a million people every year coming to visit exhibitors from not only the regional sectors but from other countries as well.
The Messe Dortmund Center played host to the 1964, 1980 and 2004 World Figure Skating Championships, as well as the 1955, 1983 and 1993 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championships tournaments.
In 1981, the venue was one of only four locations worldwide of The Wall Tour, by Pink Floyd, along with Los Angeles, Uniondale (New York) and London.
In 1983, the venue hosted the Rock Pop Festival, featuring Iron Maiden (headliner band), Scorpions, Ozzy Osbourne, Def Leppard, Quiet Riot, Judas Priest, Krokus and The Michael Schenker Group – one of the largest heavy metal lineups of all time, featuring these bands at the peak of their careers.
Westfalenhallen is officially a terminus station of the Dortmund Stadtbahn (urban rail) line U45 and U46, part of the Verkehrsverbund Rhein-Ruhr (VRR). Practically, it is not a terminus station: The trains of the line U46 continue as U45 to the central station, while the U45 trains usually continue as U46 to Brunnenstraße. In case of football matches of Borussia Dortmund or other events at Signal Iduna Park, the trains serve the terminus station Stadion.
