About Denver

Denver is a popular destination due to the high number of sunny days. Peppered with great events, this creates an incomparable travel feeling.

Denver is particularly hot from April to October. In contrast, you can expect a lot of snow in the winter, but temperatures can rise quickly. The Chinook winds are to blame. 

The Denver Powwow in March features Native American crafts, dances and music. In addition, visitors can sample Native American cuisine. In May, on the other hand, the Cinco de Mayo Festival goes Mexican, one highlight is the taco eating contest. The end of September marks the end of the summer season with the Denver Oktoberfest.

A visit to the Denver Botanic Gardens is highly recommended during a stay in the city.
