Wild West, cowboys & frontier spirit! Everybody knows the Texas myth. With its sandy beaches on the Gulf of Mexico, the mighty valleys of the Rio Grande, the deserts and swamps, endless prairies and trendy megacities there is more to Texas than that. Big Bend National Park is truly stunning with its rugged rocky landscape and striking rock formations, while visitors feel like being in Mexico when exploring dainty cities like San Antonio. Hip cities like Austin, Dallas or Houston attract art lovers with their distinctive architecture but at the same time they are important economic areas. If nothing else Austin is the home of various technological enterprises and the second largest technology hub after Silicon Valley. Originality meets the modern world – welcome to the „Lone Star State“.
