Colorado is the highest state of the United States and reportedly offers an average of 300 days of sunshine per year. The State of Colorado came to fame and fortune due to its many gold deposits in the mountains and valleys. Nowadays, Colorado attracts visitors with the stunning variety of different kinds of landscapes - from the vast steppe landscapes of the Great Plains in the east and the more than 50 four-thousand-meter-high peaks in the Rocky Mountains up to deserts in the west. If you are genuinely enthusiastic about outdoor sports and activities, there are plenty of opportunities to explore Colorado's natural treasures. Four national parks offer enough space to go hiking, cycling, rock climbing, rafting and canoeing. To those seeking something calm and relaxing, we recommend a recreational visit to the hot thermal springs or why not just go fishing?
Thanks to “farm to table”, all gourmets are at the right place here. With over 200 breweries, Colorado has earned itself the undisputed reputation of being the “beer state” in the US. Spirits are available in one of the 45 distilleries. Wine lovers will feel at home when entering the wine-growing areas Grand Valley and Grand Junction. If you happen to be interested in Colorado's cultural heritage, you may learn about traces of dinosaurs and want to visit mining museums on-site, while the second largest complex for art and culture within the United States, the Denver Art Museum, presents – hence the name – anything you wish to know about art and culture.
