Vancouver landmarks

Discover Vancouver attractions while staying in one of the most beautiful cities on North America's west coast. In this guide, we present reasons why this is so.

On the other hand, nature is practically on the doorstep in Vancouver, which makes the city particularly appealing. In addition, nature can be found even within the city limits. For example, Stanley Park showcases the coastal forests of western Canada in miniature and is just one of many attractions worth visiting.

What do they eat in this region?" As a freelance travel journalist (her articles have appeared in DIE ZEIT, 360° Canada, 360° USA, etc.), she is now looking for answers to these questions as a travel writer and travel blogger in many countries around the world.
