- 3 kg Chinese cabbage
- 80 ml fish sauce
- 15 g ginger
- 75 g garlic
- 350 chili powder
- 300 g glutinous rice flour
- Water, salt and sugar
- Spring onions
- Apple (for the kimchi paste)
- Thoroughly wash the Chinese cabbage and cut into bite-sized pieces.
- Put the cut Chinese cabbage in a bowl and sprinkle with salt. Mix well.
- Let sit for two hours to allow the salt to draw out the liquid (Better to let sit overnight!).
- Wash and peel the ginger and garlic thoroughly. Chop very finely or puree to a smooth paste using a blender.
- Cook sticky rice flour with water and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook until the sugar is dissolved and thickens to a paste.
- Add everything to the cooled rice paste along with chili powder, garlic and fish sauce. Ready is the kimchi paste! (If you don't want the kimchi to be so spicy, just use less chili powder).
- Drain the liquids leaking from the Chinese cabbage and rinse under running water to remove the salt.
- Rub the Chinese cabbage with the kimchi paste (using disposable gloves) and massage it in.
- Add the marinated Chinese cabbage in a sterile glass or plastic container. The containers should be boiled beforehand to prevent the kimchi from going bad quickly. Close the container with a few centimeters of space to the lid and without air pockets.
- Put it in the refrigerator and let it ferment for a week!
The kimchi is ready! Bon appetit!

Location & approach
The campus of TU Dortmund University is located close to interstate junction Dortmund West, where the Sauerlandlinie A 45 (Frankfurt-Dortmund) crosses the Ruhrschnellweg B 1 / A 40. The best interstate exit to take from A 45 is “Dortmund-Eichlinghofen” (closer to South Campus), and from B 1 / A 40 “Dortmund-Dorstfeld” (closer to North Campus). Signs for the university are located at both exits. Also, there is a new exit before you pass over the B 1-bridge leading into Dortmund.
To get from North Campus to South Campus by car, there is the connection via Vogelpothsweg/Baroper Straße. We recommend you leave your car on one of the parking lots at North Campus and use the H-Bahn (suspended monorail system), which conveniently connects the two campuses.
TU Dortmund University has its own train station (“Dortmund Universität”). From there, suburban trains (S-Bahn) leave for Dortmund main station (“Dortmund Hauptbahnhof”) and Düsseldorf main station via the “Düsseldorf Airport Train Station” (take S-Bahn number 1, which leaves every 15 or 30 minutes). The university is easily reached from Bochum, Essen, Mülheim an der Ruhr and Duisburg.
You can also take the bus or subway train from Dortmund city to the university: From Dortmund main station, you can take any train bound for the Station “Stadtgarten”, usually lines U41, U45, U 47 and U49. At “Stadtgarten” you switch trains and get on line U42 towards “Hombruch”. Look out for the Station “An der Palmweide”. From the bus stop just across the road, busses bound for TU Dortmund University leave every ten minutes (445, 447 and 462). Another option is to take the subway routes U41, U45, U47 and U49 from Dortmund main station to the stop “Dortmund Kampstraße”. From there, take U43 or U44 to the stop “Dortmund Wittener Straße”. Switch to bus line 447 and get off at “Dortmund Universität S”.
The H-Bahn is one of the hallmarks of TU Dortmund University. There are two stations on North Campus. One (“Dortmund Universität S”) is directly located at the suburban train stop, which connects the university directly with the city of Dortmund and the rest of the Ruhr Area. Also from this station, there are connections to the “Technologiepark” and (via South Campus) Eichlinghofen. The other station is located at the dining hall at North Campus and offers a direct connection to South Campus every five minutes.
The AirportExpress is a fast and convenient means of transport from Dortmund Airport (DTM) to Dortmund Central Station, taking you there in little more than 20 minutes. From Dortmund Central Station, you can continue to the university campus by interurban railway (S-Bahn). A larger range of international flight connections is offered at Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), which is about 60 kilometres away and can be directly reached by S-Bahn from the university station.
