Discover the many facets of Dallas: ultra-modern buildings, cozy shops and first-class museums.
Welcome to Dallas - "The Big D"! The third largest city in Texas was founded in 1841 and was long considered an important center of the oil and cotton industry. Last but not least, the “Dallas” television series made you think mostly of ranches, oil wells and powerful family businesses - even though the city has achieved a significant change in image.
Banks and oil companies as well as modern hotels, convention centers and skyscrapers with glass facades now stand on the Texas steppe floor of Dallas. In fact, there are no derricks and refineries within the city limits these days. The "Swinging Dallas" presents itself as a young, dynamic city with a wide range of bars, discos, country and western clubs and has some of the best shopping in all of Texas. Big dreams, the pioneering spirit and constantly new construction projects have made the city a modern economic center of the computer, finance and petrochemical industry. Not without reason is Dallas' slogan: "Big Things Happen Here!"
