Old Port Authority Building
The old Port Authority Building stands as a landmark at the entrance to the port. Its role had been to warn incoming river vessels from far away that they were approaching the port of Dortmund, much like a lighthouse. The building’s design is reminiscent of the low German style, espousing the style of 17th century Dutch building design. These days, the Old Port Authority Building is used by the water police, the Dortmund marine fellowship and the Register Office, with the Kaisersaal serving as a wedding ceremony venue. Plus, there’s an exhibition on navigation and ports.
