Reinoldikirche
Dortmund Reinoldikirche

The Protestant Reinoldikirche is, according to its foundation date, the oldest extant church in Dortmund and is dedicated to Saint Reinoldus, the patron of the city. The church was built as a palatinate church in the Ottonian era. The present building is a late Romanesque church with a late gothic quire. The Reinoldikirche was built from 1250 to 1270, and is located in the center of the city, directly at the crossing of the Hellweg (a historic trade route) and the historic road from Cologne to Bremen.

The church was heavily damaged in World War II. Since the reconstruction the tower now bears a hood with baroque features. These features supply a visual and harmonious connection between the original style of the church and its appearance after reconstruction. The tower of the Reinoldikirche (104 m) can be visited, up to the first platform by the bell tower. On the inside there is a large set of bells; the heaviest bell weighing 6.500 kg, and measuring 2.50 m in diameter, is the largest cast steel bell in Westphalia.

Hours: daily from 10am - 6pm.
