Aptly nicknamed the "Mile-High City," Denver sits at an altitude of 1,600 m (5,280 ft) above sea level, located right where the Great Plains give way to the Rocky Mountains.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Benson Park Sculpture Garden and Colorado Model Railroad Museum. Visiting The Beach at Grand Lake and Dinosaur Ridge will get you outdoors. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Denver: Rocky Mountain National Park (Emerald Lake Trail, Sprague Lake, & more), Estes Park (Red Rose Rock Shop & Dick's Rock Museum, Images of Rocky Mountain National Park, & more) and St Mary's Glacier (in Idaho Springs). On the 20th (Fri), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Arapahoe Basin. There's much more to do: cruise along Guanella Pass, explore the world behind art at Swetsville Zoo, explore the activities along Cache La Poudre River, and push the limits with an extreme tour.

To see other places to visit, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Denver trip generator.

If you are flying in from Austria, the closest major airports are Denver International Airport and City of Colorado Springs Municipal Airport. In October in Denver, expect temperatures between 22°C during the day and 5°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
