Denver, Colorado

At the foot of the Rocky Mountains lies Denver, the Mile High City. The capital of Colorado was once the gateway to the wild west and is still an ideal starting point for exploring the American west. The outdoor city of Denver presents itself with a lot of self-confidence, a multifaceted charm and of course the indescribable Rocky Mountains directly in the front yard. Add to this the mild and dry climate of the region with around 300 days of sunshine a year.

Urban adventures It's
not just the nature around Denver that inspires - the urban adventure also attracts people of all ages to the Mile High City: the pedestrian-friendly downtown combines tradition and modernity. If historic brick Victorian-style houses are to be found in Larimer Square, you will come across postmodern buildings like the Denver Art Museum a few blocks away. Discover the fresh farm-to-table cuisine in over 2,000 restaurants in Denver, try unusual craft beer varieties in the local breweries or listen to a concert in the unique setting of the Red Rocks Park & ​​Amphitheater. Make your wildest shopping dreams come true in Cherry Creek and dress like a real cowboy in the legendary ranch specialty store Rockmount Ranch Wear Store, the inventor of the classic cowboy shirt.

Art, culture & lots of sports!
Art lovers should head to Denver's institution: The Denver Art Museum presents a fine selection of Native American artwork as well as Western Art collections. And anyway, the arts are almost omnipresent in Denver: from the huge Blue Bear in front of the Convention Center to hip galleries and urban art in the cool RiNo district (River North). Denver is above all a city that loves sports. A team from Denver plays in all of the highest leagues in American national sports, so you usually have the opportunity to watch exciting sporting events.

The Gateway to the American West
Denver is the perfect starting point for a vacation in the western United States. Since 2016, the A Line train has been running every 15 - 30 minutes between the newly renovated Union Square and Denver International Airport, one of the largest airports in the world. The direct connection makes Denver one of the most accessible cities in the USA.
