What are some good bakeries in Portland


Portland lies at the confluence of the mighty Columbia River with the Willamette River and is affectionately known as the "City of Roses" because of the oldest rose garden in North America. Portland is a great base for touring Oregon. The hip metropolis and largest city in Oregon is an insider tip for gourmets and a trendsetter among American cities. Thanks to good public transport, you can easily explore Portland without a car or on foot.

The abundance of green in the city, the colorful mixture of hip flair, an urban quality of life and proximity to nature, the mountains, the rivers and the sea make Portland so special. Trendy restaurants in old factory buildings, cool shops in Victorian townhouses, indie music and the special art scene give Portland a unique nonchalance. Excellent wine bars tempt you with delicious Pinot Noir from Oregon's wine region, some bakeries create perhaps the most unusual donuts in the world every day - and numerous small breweries delight with their own beer creations. It is not for nothing that "Portlanders" like to refer to their city as the "Microbrew Capital of the World": With almost 100 microbreweries, there are the highest number of breweries in a city anywhere in the world. Be sure to take part in one of the fun brewery tours!

Another highlight in Portland is a visit to the Portland Saturday Market. This takes place on Saturdays and Sundays from March to Christmas and, with over 300 dealers and a concert stage, is one of the largest open-air markets in the USA. You can learn about the history of Oregon at the Oregon History Center. The USS Blueback, a submarine from 1959, and the laser and astronomy shows at the Oregon Museum of Science & Industry are also particularly worth seeing.
