New halls were built, the Große Westfalenhalle opened in 1952. The capacity of the arena is 16,500.

Westfalenhallen is officially a terminus station of the Dortmund Stadtbahn (urban rail) line U45 and U46, part of the Verkehrsverbund Rhein-Ruhr (VRR). Practically, it is not a terminus station: The trains of the line U46 continue as U45 to the central station, while the U45 trains usually continue as U46 to Brunnenstraße. In case of football matches of Borussia Dortmund or other events at Signal Iduna Park, the trains serve the terminus station Stadion.
