    Rosy clouds at dawn and a high view of Auckland’s illuminated city centre.
    As surprising as it may seem, Auckland is built on a volcanic field of almost 50 volcanoes! Some extinct, of course, but others only dormant! (photo taken from the crater of Mount Eden)

    Auckland, Welcome to the City of Sails

    Auckland is the leading economic centre and the main gateway to New Zealand. The relaxed lifestyle and job opportunities attract people from all over. And, not surprisingly, a third of the country’s population lives here. The Sky Tower represents the ultimate Auckland icon. From the observation platform, the view stretches a spectacular 360 degrees.

    But Auckland’s greatest treasure lies in its location at the heart of three natural harbours. The Pacific Ocean and Tasman Sea are never far away on this peninsula. More than 100 beaches can be reached in less than an hour’s drive from the city centre. A true paradise!

    Just a little taller than the Eiffel Tower, the SKY Tower (328 metres) offers the most adventurous visitors the challenge of gravity evasion. There’s plenty to do here, as yoga sessions are offered on weekday mornings.

    Along the waterfront, people walk along a pedestrian walkway while others eat at restaurant terraces.
    Thanks to its location between subtropical and temperate climates, Auckland enjoys a sunny climate with warm summers and mild winters.

    Despite its small size, Albert Park is one of Auckland’s most popular green spaces.

    A highly popular sport in New Zealand, rugby fosters team spirit, respect, discipline and, of course, courage.

    A small white sailboat cruises along peacefully. The buildings of the city centre rise up behind it.
    In Auckland, a particular boat remains as famous as ever, even though it’s been years since it was sabotaged here by the French Secret Service. The wreck of the Rainbow Warrior has been moved further north and given to the seabed for diving enthusiasts to enjoy.

    The silhouettes of a dozen sailboats appear under a bridge at sunset.
    Nicknamed the “City of Sails”, Auckland’s 3,700 km of coastline provide an attractive setting. The Hauraki Gulf is the perfect place to escape by boat to one of the fifty or so paradise islands!
