Portland lies at the confluence of the
mighty Columbia River and the Willamette
River and is also fondly called the "City of
Roses" due to the oldest rose garden in
North America. Portland is a wonderful base
for touring Oregon. The hip metropolis and
largest city in Oregon is an insider tip for
gourmets and a trendsetter among American
cities. Thanks to good public transport, you
can also explore Portland comfortably
without a car or simply on foot.
The greenery in the city, the colorful
mixture of hip flair, an urban quality of
life and the proximity to nature, the
mountains, the rivers and the sea make
Portland so special. Trendy restaurants in
old factory buildings, cool shops in
Victorian townhouses, indie music and the
special art scene give Portland a unique
nonchalance. Excellent wine bars tempt with
delicious Pinot Noir from the Oregon wine
region, some bakeries create perhaps the
most unusual donuts in the world every day -
and numerous small breweries inspire with
their own beer creations. It is not for
nothing that "Portlanders" like to call
their city "Microbrew Capital of the World":
with almost 100 small breweries, there is
the highest number of breweries in a city
all over the world.
Another highlight in Portland is a visit
to the Portland Saturday Market. This takes
place on Saturdays and Sundays from March to
Christmas and is one of the largest outdoor
markets in the United States with over 300
retailers and a concert stage. You can learn
about the history of Oregon at the Oregon
History Center. Also worth seeing are the
USS Blueback, a submarine from 1959, and the
laser and astronomy shows at the Oregon
Museum of Science & Industry.
Portland, "The City of Roses", has many
experiences in store for you. To get a
first impression of the diversity, you
should visit the city's tourism website.

beer town you will get to know several
breweries and you can also try a sip or

Eastern Oregon, Oregon
When you think of Oregon, one area is
often given little attention: Eastern
Oregon. Not enough - because in this diverse
part of the state, the focus is not on wine
or the sea: Alpine mountain landscapes,
winding rivers, endless deserts, vast
prairies, impressive scenic byways, lonely
ghost towns and a rich history give Eastern
Oregon its special charm.
There is, for example, the Alvord Desert
in southeastern Oregon: In the shadow of the
impressive Steens Mountain, the Cascade
Range and the Oregon Coast Range, the
cracked floor of the salt desert extends
over an area of 218 kmē. With an average
rainfall of just 180 mm per year, survival
for plants and animals is practically
impossible. In this unique and surreal
region you will almost feel like you are on
another planet. The same feeling could
happen to you in the Painted Hills of the
John Day Fossil Beds National Monument. The
colorful stone layers of the gentle hills
glow red, yellow, gold or black - a unique
Hells Canyon, the deepest gorge in North
America, in northeastern Oregon borders
directly on Idaho. The Snake River has
carved deep grooves in the Walowa Mountains
for millions of years, creating a
breathtaking landscape. Discover the canyon
on a guided boat tour on the river - or set
off on your own adventure. Are you looking
for rest and relaxation? Then sail your
canoe on the peaceful waters of the Anthony
Lakes. Take a deep breath, enjoy the
incredible panorama of the surrounding
Elkhorn Range and the Gunsight Peak - and
forget the worries of everyday life for a
Once you have had enough of the wide
state, tranquil cities like Joseph or
Enterprise are just the right place to
go. Visit art galleries, shop in small
boutiques and enjoy the excellent local
cuisine, where the ingredients usually come
straight from the farm to your plate.
