Travel Forums Europe Dortmund, Hanover... boring cities?

I'm set to go to Dortmund and Hanover for the world cup this summer, but when I look on http://www.fanguide2006.org/en, it seemed that those 2 cities weren't that very interesting. Dortmund for example is more like a job city. Hanover is 500 000 persons, it's a lot people but not that much.

What cool stuff can be done in Dortmund and Hanover?
Are they boring cities?

Depends - my mother loves to shop there...

You could do a daytrip to one of the many castles in the area. Or go to Braunschweig (Brunswick), which is a bit nicer.

A boring city is made by boring people. Do you really thinks fans of the football won't make a party inside the cities ??? It all depends which place you are and wich people you are around. Boring is not a word I would call these cities. Even when I went out alone in these cities I had a great time.
