From Casino to Culture

For many, a holiday in Las Vegas can be seen to encompass the following agenda: blackjack – partying – hangover. Although this dazzling city thrives on such clichés, it has plenty of other qualities worth discovering.

Las Vegas is the Mecca of gamblers. Its ostentatious and majestic hotels have created an illusory world in the midst of the desert that is truly unique. A stroll along the Strip is like experiencing a touch of Venice (Venetian Hotel), Egypt (Luxor Hotel) and the Eiffel Tower (Paris Hotel). Temperatures in Las Vegas are mild to hot depending on the season. The only time it gets a little chilly is at night.

Away from the blackjack table

Adrenalin junkies will love the Stratosphere Tower! The amusement park with a free-fall tower is located 918 ft. (280 m) above the Strip, offering spectacular views of the surrounding area. The impressive Red Rock Canyon can be seen shimmering in the distance and is definitely worth a visit. Another must-see is the famous Bellagio water show. And anyone craving for even more entertainment has a myriad of spectacular shows to choose from. As well as musicals, comedy and variety shows, the venues of Las Vegas regularly play host to performances by top singers and artists, including Elton John, Celine Dion and Cirque du Soleil, just to name a few.

Favouring al dente over all-you-can-eat

The casinos are not the only venues where diversity reigns in Las Vegas: imaginative burger and pasta spots and sophisticated international cuisine are equally abundant here. What better way to replenish your energy than with a delicious meal followed by long party nights in the city’s clubs that feature internationally renowned DJs. And for visitors eager to party in Las Vegas, the Hangover Heaven bus supplies vitamins, oxygen and other helpful remedies to cure a potential hangover…

Las Vegas as your starting point

Las Vegas is also an excellent starting point for travel in the US. Los Angeles and San Francisco are just a few hours’ drive away. A trip to Las Vegas is also an opportunity to see the Mojave National Preserve and Death Valley National Park. The Mojave Desert is one of the driest places on Earth and an unforgettable landmark to visit. Grand Canyon helicopter tours are available from Las Vegas. The stunning landscape and gorges can subsequently be explored on foot. Because nothing beats fresh air when it comes to curing a hangover!

Discover the coast of California and drive to San Diego on the Highway 1. Plunge into the second largest city of the Golden State. Thanks to the nonstop flight with Edelweiss you can even enjoy your flight back home.

Information for golf fans

Las Vegas is also a prime destination for golfers. Dozens of golf courses and driving ranges are easy to reach and can be used for a low fee. The driving ranges in the heart of the city are a typical Vegas feature that should not be missed. Let our special page inspire and inform you:
