Lost Place Tours of the old Library

You studied in Dortmund and were often in the university library on Vogelpothsweg? At the end of October 2023, the last books will move into a storage magazine for the construction period. Guided tours will give you the opportunity to take another look at the building, which will be prepared for demolition starting in November.
