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.
Visiting Mount Evans and Denver Zoo will get you outdoors. Get a sense of the local culture at Denver Art Museum and Images of Rocky Mountain National Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Dancing Pines Distillery (in Estes Park), Bear Lake (in Rocky Mountain National Park) and Flatirons (in Boulder). There's much more to do: look and learn at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, look for gifts at Tattered Cover Book Store, appreciate the extensive heritage of 16th Street Mall, and take in nature's colorful creations at Denver Botanic Gardens.

If you are flying in from Denmark, the closest major airports are Denver International Airport and City of Colorado Springs Municipal Airport. November in Denver sees daily highs of 13°C and lows of -1°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
