Buenos Aires - the Paris of South America

Argentina's capital city, Buenos Aires, became known as Paris of South America during its economic and artistic heydays and beginning of the 20th century.

It is a beautiful city with a European flair and an ideal place for your next meeting or seminar. You can find daily direct connections from Europe to the city´s international airport Ministro Pistarini in Ezeiza. The economy is characterized by continuous ups and downs and is the third strongest economy of South America. At the beginning of the 20th century, the country was a flagship state, which can still be seen by the many turn of the century Art Deco buildings shaping the city. For a special and unique conference or incentive trip, Argentina is definitely a great place to explore. We reveal the reasons why.

Buenos Aires - Unique nightlife

Argentina is associated with a unique nightlife and the Argentinian Tango. The elegant and melancholic music and dance style was born in the port cities of Buenos Aires and Montevideo at the end of the 19th century. Coined by a mix of styles from various peoples and cultures who immigrated to South America. From here, the fascination of Tango began and conquered the entire world. Since 2009, it is part of the intangible UNESCO World Cultural Heritage.

In Buenos Aires you will find an inexhaustible nightlife and great bars, which turn the night into day. The parties start late, so don't even think to show up before 2 a.m. However, this is not a problem and gives you sufficient time to really enjoy the evening, starting off with a dinner.

The best steaks and bars

If you are looking for the best steaks and bars in Argentina, you will find them here. A nice dinner with a typical Argentinian filet and a glass of red wine - maybe a Malbec from the Mendoza region? A “bife de lomo” (filet piece) will literally melt in your mouth. Especially if it comes from the region around Buenos Aires. Throughout the city you will find the typical "parillas" where you can enjoy the best meat specialties.

After such a meal, you can treat yourself to a cocktail in one of the many bars. A nice tip here can be the speakeasy Florería Atlántico - a bar disguised as a flower shop. Walk inside and just open the fridge door. Behind it a secret passage will lead you down to the bar. A fancy and stylish place will welcome you in a unique atmosphere with excellent cocktails. Making it an exceptional place for an after work drink.

The widest street in the world

The world's widest street leads through the impressive city center of Buenos Aires. Avenida 9 de julio (July 9 Avenue) is 140 meters wide and it takes about 2 minutes to cross it. It was completed in 1960 and symbolizes the importance and economic bloom of Argentina in the first half of the 20th century. The street is known for its obelisk, which stands on the Plaza de la República (Republic Square). It was erected in 1936 to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the city´s foundation. There are many important monuments standing alongside the street, such as the Teatro Colón (Columbus Theater). The theater is known for its impressive architecture and unique acoustics, which is one of the best in the world. Three architects took over the project and created one of the most famous concert halls. It is worth taking a guided tour of the opera, which is offered every half an hour, including in English.

Parks and coffee culture

There are plenty of parks and an important coffee culture in Buenos Aires. Away from the hustle and bustle of your meeting, you can enjoy a little bit of time off in one of the city's many parks. A handy hint can be for example, the Botanical Garden of Buenos Aires in the Palermo district. Together with the Japanese Garden and the Parque Tres de Febrero, it is part of a local recreation area for residents. You will find 5000 plant species from all over South America in this picturesque place and can enter it for free. In the humid summer climate, the temperatures offer an ideal habitat and growing conditions.

You must also plan to enjoy a coffee in one of the traditional coffee houses that you will encounter throughout the city. Over 70 historic cafés will remind you of French or Italian coffee bar. We recommend that you simply start your day with a medialuna (croissant) and café con leche (coffee with milk).
