New Orleans

Jazz. Beignets. Architecture.

The city with its large harbor on the Mississippi River is known for its historic old town, the “French Quarter”, the extraordinary mansions in the “Garden District”, the architecture from the Spanish and French colonial period, as well as its local Creole cuisine. But above all, New Orleans is considered the “Cradle of Jazz.” The city has produced countless famous artists, especially of course the legendary jazz musicians, but also writers such as Truman Capote and Tennessee Williams. An annual theater festival is dedicated to the great author, adding to the city’s already abundant calendar of events.
