Kansas, the "Sunflower State", is characterized by cattle
breeding, agriculture and grain cultivation - you can find the
largest contiguous wheat growing areas here, which is why one
speaks of the "bread basket of the USA".
The "Wild West"
begins in Kansas City. The city was formerly an important center
of the cattle trade and was created through the amalgamation of
different communities. There are numerous monuments and museums
here. At the beginning of the 20th century, Kansas City was also
the center of jazz, and there are still some recommended jazz
clubs to this day.
Topeka, the capital of Kansas, is home to the must-see Kansas
State Capitol, the Museum of History and the Old Prairie Town at
Ward Meade Historic Site, a 19th-century village that consists
partly of original buildings and partly of reconstructions.
The largest city in Kansas is Wichita, which has now become
an important location for the aircraft industry. Worth seeing is

small town was founded by Swedish emigrants and developed into
an artist colony.
In the city of Abilene, on the other hand, you can visit the
house of Dwight D. Eisenhower, who grew up here and has been the
only German-born US president to date.
There is also a lot to discover in Hutchinson, where there is

Cosmosphere and Space Center. Or you can visit the Kansas
Underground Salt Museum, because Hutchinson is also considered
the salt capital. There is a considerable layer of salt at a
depth of 400 meters.
Those looking for the western experience are in the right
place in Dodge City, the western city par excellence. It is
located on the Santa Fe Trail, an old trade route that was
secured by Fort Larned, among other things. The fort is now one
of the most exciting open-air museums in the state.
In addition to culture, there are also numerous nature
experiences, such as the endless prairies, which are
particularly good to experience on the Flint Hills Scenic Byway,
or the Kansas Wetlands, a large wetland area that is ideal for
bird and game viewing.
The Wild West
Infinite vastness and the prairie landscapes paint the
