What Vancouver (YVR) has to offer

Your flight to Vancouver, British Columbia

The city of Vancouver is ideally situated to be the biggest harbour in all of North America, because Vancouver Island shields the actual city from the Pacific, forming a gigantic natural harbour. As a city on the sea Vancouver has a much friendlier climate than most Canadian cities, attracting many new citizens from the cities with harsher inland climate. The locals appreciate the fact that they live not only in a most beautiful natural setting, but also in a setting of multicultural inclusion and creative energy.

Young town for a young nation

It took a gold rush and a railhead of the Canadian Pacific Railway to make the area into the city we see today. Since the 1890s the city grew because of it is rich logging country all around and the growing trade through the harbour. Have a look for yourself and climb on the Vancouver Lookout, forty stories above ground, to see a panoramic view of the harbour, the city and the mountains. Some kind of history hovers around the Gastown district. The sailor Jack „Gassy“ Leighton arrived here in 1867 with a barrel of Whisky and opened a bar for the loggers and mill workers. Around this bar a little village emerged and later morphed into the city of Vancouver. Apart from the oldest architecture of Vancouver you can also find a steam clock that tourists love to watch whistling and puffing.

Hollywood North – Vancouver on screen

Nearly as old is the Chinatown of Vancouver, many came from China for work on the railway. In the hectic quarter you can find a quiet oasis, the “Dr. Sun Yat-Sens Classical Chinese Garden”. Visit the Canada Place at the harbour, a building from the EXPO 86, looking like a sailing ship. Also from that time is the science museum Science World at False Creek. Many tourists come here because they are fans of one of the many TV series or movies that were produced and filmed in Vancouver. That gave the city the nickname “Hollywood North”. The spectacular nature around the city is a constant invitation for hiking, climbing, fishing and hunting. If you go up Mount Grouse, about 20 minutes away from downtown Vancouver, you can actually grab your skis or snowboard and race down the mountain with a view on the Pacific. Enjoy your time in Vancouver!
