Tourist in Auckland

Auckland is not the capital of New Zealand, but with its 400,000 inhabitants, it is the country’s most populous city. 25% of New Zealand’s population lives in or around Auckland. The city is located on the northern tip of the North Island and lies on a narrow land belt with the Tasmanian Sea to the west and the Pacific Ocean to the east. Founded around 1840, Auckland was New Zealand’s first capital until this title went to Wellington in 1865.

Auckland has been nicknamed the City of Sails because of the thousands of sailboats and yachts located in the marinas of Waitemata Harbor and Hauraki Gulf. No cities in the world have more boats per capita than Auckland.

The most distinctive building in Auckland is the Sky Tower, which really lives up to its name. This is the highest viewpoint in the southern hemisphere, with an altitude of 328 meters. The tower also houses a hotel, casino, theaters and bus station. The adrenaline rush can jump in elastic from a platform of 192 m or take a so-called “Walk around”.

You should also visit the city observatory and planetarium, the Stardome. This is on the slopes of the volcanic hilltop One Tree Hill, of which U2 has a song on The Joshua Tree album. In the park you will also find archaeological Maori excavations and a children’s playground. Also visit the Auckland Zoo, which has over 150 different species of animals, many of which are only found in New Zealand.

Of a little more special experiences you have Spookers, which is located in an old mental hospital. Here you can walk around in haunted houses and in a forest, where creepy creatures and ghosts constantly scare the water off you. The 16-year limit is very reasonable!

Those who want to experience Auckland’s nightlife can head straight for Ponsonby Road, a mere mile of cafes, pubs, bars, restaurants and clubs. Click here for more about Ponsonby Road in Auckland.
