In my opinion, not so much… It’s a big city with a smalltown feeling. And that I liked! But otherwise not a particularly atmospheric place. I did the “mandatory” cable car ride (wellingtoncablecar.co.nz), which in the end was nothing more than a nice view. Maybe walking back down would have been a treat…? Since the sun was shining and it was a warm winter day, I did get to enjoy a nice walk along the harbor. All in all, two days in Wellington were more than adequate.
