Town in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It played a conspicuous part in the popularization of music during the industrial expansion of the 19th century. In the Middle Ages Dortmund belonged to the Hanseatic League and enjoyed a prosperity which it subsequently lost and recovered only in the 19th century; medieval affluence is reflected in the main churches, the Marienkirche, the Reinoldikirche and the Propsteikirche St Johannes der Täufer, all begun in the 13th and 14th centuries.
