“Flat water” was the former name of the Oto Indians for the 37th state of the United States, which was admitted to the Federation in 1867. The name derives from the designation of the Platte River, a nearly 500 km long tributary of the Missouri, which runs across the state. Nebraska borders South Dakota to the north, Iowa and Missouri to the east, Kansas to the south, and Colorado and Wyoming to the west.

As an allusion to the wild Midwest, Nebraska is nowadays also referred to as a “Middle of Nowhere” or “Cornhusker State” state (nicknamed “Corn Peeler State”). These nicknames are no coincidence because they cover an area of 200,520 square kilometers spread only 1.9 million people – of which live about 410,000 in the largest city of Nebraska Omaha and 255,000 in the capital, Lincoln. Once a derelict and barren prairie state, Nebraska is now a leading agricultural state. Wherever you look, teeming Nebraska has earned its name from farms and the name of the state of maize, with the most important industries being cattle breeding and the meat industry, but also oil and natural gas production.
Omaha is now the 10th largest city in the United States with the most millionaires. So comes from B. the entrepreneur and major investor Warren Buffet from Omaha. His personal wealth was estimated by Forbes at $ 50 billion in 2011, making him the third richest person in the world.

While liberal ideas developed in Nebraska in the 1980s, the state is still considered conservative to this day. The “Nebraskans” in the country in particular love their endless expanses, the traditional rodeos at weekends and the barbecue on church Sundays, but surprisingly, a diverse range of culture has established itself in cities like Omaha and Lincoln. Omaha is regularly ranked among the top regions in the United States with the best quality of life.
Nebraska is also located in the so-called Tornado Alley. This is a particularly tornado-rich area in the Midwestern United States, where over a thousand large and small tornadoes roam across the country each year, especially in the spring. The U.S. states of Oklahoma, Arkansas and Missouri are all within Tornado Alley. Tornado Alley also includes the northeastern part of Texas, the north of Louisiana, the northwestern part of Mississippi, central and southern Illinois and the southwest of Indiana as well as smaller parts of Tennessee and Kentucky.

Cities and larger towns

With just under 410,000 inhabitants, Omaha in Douglas County is the most populous city in Nebraska. The name can be traced back to the Indian tribe of the Omaha. The city in the west was the state’s foreign trade center even then. Positioned directly on the Missouri and not far from the Platte River, the pioneers did their business here. With the flourishing of many places on the east and west coasts, the cities of the Midwest are quickly underestimated – but Omaha has a lot to offer in terms of culture. The district around the Old Market is particularly popular with younger and culture-loving clients. Sophisticated bars, cafes and clubs adorn the cityscape between the cobblestone streets of 10th and 13th Street and especially the Joslyn Art Museum attracts one or the other visitor to Omaha.


To honor former US President Abraham Lincoln, the capital in Lancaster County was named after him in 1856. Today, approximately 255,000 people live in Lincoln. The city, which is under constant construction, is the second largest in the state after Omaha. Lincoln is particularly known for the six-block Haymarket District. The district in the memory style invites you to night pub crawls or extensive restaurant visits. But the 122 m high state building also attracts the attention of many visitors. Lincoln is also Nebraska’s main university campus and home to the Nebraska-Cornhuskers – the hallowed local football team that makes the hearts of many Nebraskans beat faster during its annual games at Memorial Stadium.

‘Nice View’ is the French word for Bellevue – and, among other things, the name of the state’s third largest city in Sarpy Country. Once the capital, Nebraska, Bellevue is now known as the oldest in the state. The name can, as is so often the case, be one of the first Tracing settlers back then who already enjoyed the magnificent view of the Missouri River. 51,000 people live in the city just 8 miles from Omaha today – and the number tends to increase. Ideally located near the river, Bellevue is one of the few places in Nebraska, which is not threatened by continued flight from the country. In the past 20 years the population has increased by almost 11,000.

Grand Island
The fourth largest city in Nebraska – Grand Island – is the county seat of Hall County. The town in the center of Nebraska has a total of 48,500 inhabitants. Grand Island is best known for its meat industry and the Nebraska Law Enforcement Training Center, which trains the entire state police force. Since 2010, Grand Island has also hosted the popular Nebraska State Fair, which means that Lincoln has managed to organize one of the most important events of the year.
