Wisconsin, in the northern part of United States, is a state of natural beauty, tradition and enchanting for its architecture. One of the most visited cities of Wisconsin is Madison, which features its capitol, inspired by that of Washington, DC

The university city is formed by beautiful gardens and views of the lake from all sides. In addition, its gastronomic scene is rapidly gaining momentum and artists love the region. Madison is always among the best cities for "college football".


Wisconsin History

After the unsuccessful revolution in Germany in 1848, many citizens were disappointed because they had promised themselves more political and civil rights vis-à-vis the nobility and other elites.

Because of this less promising situation, many Germans ventured into the new, unknown world. She was drawn to a country that was little developed, but the situation there couldn't be worse than in her old home.

After arriving on the east coast, mostly New York, many German immigrants moved to Wisconsin. One of the so-called forty-eighties was the revolutionary Carl Schurz. His wife Magarete founded the first kindergarten in the USA in Watertown. The well-known clergyman Constantin August Maria von Droste zu Hülshoff embarked for America in 1860 and worked as a missionary in Wisconsin until his death in 1901.


Milwaukee is the largest and at the same time only nationwide known city of Wisconsin, which was predominantly shaped by German immigrants. The capital of Wisconsin, however, is Madison.

In 1850 there were six German-language newspapers in Milwaukee. The city developed quite quickly and was characterized by its modernity. The German population developed just as quickly as the city, and by 1870 it had 27 percent of the population.

In 1910 Milwaukee got the first socialist mayor with the German immigrant Emil Seidel. Milwaukee was also influenced by German tradition in culinary terms. There are still numerous breweries here that go back to German roots. Milwaukee is therefore also nicknamed the American beer capital. The typical German food bratwurst and sauerkraut was also very popular.

The First World War ended the popularity of German traditions for the time being. If at all possible, the German being was no longer emphasized as strongly as before. Another problematic period was the Second World War. Nowadays, these unpleasant times are forgotten and the German Festival takes place in Milwaukee every year. Before the immigrants from the so-called old world (Europe), Wisconsin was in the hands of the French and the British.

The French rule ended with the Treaty of Paris in 1763, while the British mandate ended in 1783 after the successful renunciation of the British motherland at the end of the American War of Independence.

Economy and trade

During the first decades of the development and settlement of today's Wisconsin, the fur trade was an important source of income for a long time. While exploited in other states gold and silver mines, they sat in Wisconsin on lead mines.

The development of these mines brought economic prosperity and an increasing population. The miners working in these mines were referred to as badgers because they moved through the corridors and tunnels as nimbly and nimbly as these animals through their structures.

In addition to German immigrants, newcomers from Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Poland and Switzerland discovered the advantages of this wooded area.

Active vacation in Wisconsin

There are not many sights that stand out individually. Rather, Wisconsin is a state that unfolds its charm as a whole. Warm summers, brightly colored foliage in Indian Summer, cherry blossoms in spring and maritime surroundings around thousands of lakes.

Outdoor adventures in the forested areas, endless fun in the snow and numerous opportunities to spend family-friendly days. There are no limits to the entrepreneurial drive of holidaymakers who value active holidays. Art, culture and food lovers will also get their money's worth here.

Wisconsin is one of the largest cheese producers and produces about sixty percent of the cranberries in the United States. Numerous beer breweries with connected beer gardens offer original German cosiness. Fish specialties are also very popular due to the high water resources.

Well-known architect Frank Lloyd Wright was born in Wisconsin. Contemporary witnesses to his ingenious architecture are spread all over the country and can be viewed particularly well on the Frank Lloyd Wright Trail. The famous motorcycle manufacturer Harley Davidson also comes from this state.

A special destination is the Upper Lake on the border with Canada. It is the largest of the five Great Lakes in North America and the second largest inland water worldwide. The border between Canada and the USA runs through this lake. In addition to Wisconsin, Lake Superior extends to Minnesota and Michigan.
