    Munich

    April 6, 2018 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    Get to the city centre of Munich with Marienplatz - the central plaza - or the Hofbräuhaus am Platzl - the famous pub for drinking Maß and enjoy the ambience of Oktober Fest any time of the year. As for the Viktualienmarkt, located some steps away from Marienplatz, if you are lucky enough to have nice weather, you can appreciate Munich street food and check exactly where it comes from because you are surrounded by the vegetable stands as well as the butchers that supply the market eating area. The permanent Maypole tells the story of beer in the city and decorates the centre of the market. At night you can walk around and you will always find a place to drink a beer or to eat a sausage and you can even go aboard the Cocktail Tram...Read more

    Salzburg

    April 5, 2018 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    Salzburg is a magnificent city that has so much to offer. It was impossible to visit all, but we tried our best. Before we got into the city we first visited Red Bull's owner hobby hall in Hangar 7 - his collection of planes and F1 cars is amazing. The following day we started by visiting Hohensalzburg Castle - dating from 1077 - on top of the Festungsberg. After a stop for a Leberkäse, we entered the amazing cathedral and moved on to the pedestrian area - Getreidegasse - where you can see, along with the great international brands, fancy shops to buy a "Dirndl" or a "Lederhosen" - the traditional Austrian clothes. We passed by Mozart's birthplace house and visited the house where he lived till he moved to Vienna. The Mirabell Palace with its incredible gardens were on the way to the so expected Sacher Torte which was the highlight of our afternoon at the Sacher Café in the Sacher Hotel. The day ended with a special dinner at St. Peter Stiftskulinarium restaurant with a Mozart dinner concert - simply splendid!!! Goosebumps come to you when you first start listening to the singers!Read more

    Innsbruck

    April 4, 2018 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    Swarovsky exhibition, in Wattens, and the Jumping Hill, in Innsbruck, are spots that you shouldn't miss in this journey from the west heading to Salzburg. The crystal world underground, or outside in the open air, will take your breath away and the "ahs" and "ohs" will come one after the other. As for the jumping hill, no matter how many times you watched it on television, the feeling of craziness and gravity-defying will make you feel totally flabbergasted. Only insane people can do it! I wouldn't do it for sure!Read more

    Füssen

    April 3, 2018 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Füssen is a German town near the border to Austria. The city centre is full of life and you can hang on trying "snowballs" - a cookie amalgama - or drinking a beer while you eat cheese soup or liver dumplings. But the Bavarian town is most known because of the castles Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau that lie southeast of the town. They were both the creation of a lunatic King Ludwig and Neuschwanstein was an inspiration to Disneyworld castle.Read more

    Feldkirch

    April 2, 2018 in Austria ⋅ ☁️ 12 °C

    James Bond's movie "Quantum of Solace" took scene here. For only a few seconds there is a chasing scene on this precise street in Feldkirch. A traditional street where street coffee houses are spread, even in cold weather. It is a small city, full of charm and traditional ambience. You can easily go on foot from the city centre to the Schattenburg Castle to have a nice view of the city and eat the biggest schnitzel in this area (30 cm) in the Castle Restaurant.Read more

    Vaduz

    April 2, 2018 in Liechtenstein ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    What a tiny beautiful clean city! Liechtenstein is a very small but nice place. It is located on the margin of the Rhine river and has a beautiful castle that dates from the 1300’s.
    Liechtenstein is a German-speaking, 25km-long principality between Austria and Switzerland. It’s known for its medieval castles, alpine landscapes and villages linked by a network of trails. The capital, Vaduz, a cultural and financial centre, is home to Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, with galleries of modern and contemporary art.

    Friedrichshafen

    April 1, 2018 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 6 °C

    The Zeppelin Museum and the zeppelins floating up in the sky take you back to the end of WWII. All you need to know about it and a bit of the history of aviation you can have it here. The interactive exhibition makes it also a fun place for children to learn a bit about aerodynamics. You can also take your time to stroll a bit along the pier or drive to Lindau - also a nice little city.Read more

    Bregenz

    March 30, 2018 in Austria ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    Beautiful Lake Constance is surrounded by amazing points of interest.
    The Bildstein Church has a stunning view of the Lake and the Swiss Alps.
    The Library - formerly a monastery - is above the city of Bregenz and, again, you can have a perfect view of the lake. If you get lucky you can even spot a zeppelin silently floating up in the air coming from Friedrichshafen - the German shore of the Lake.
    Walking the streets of the city centre, the Bavarian way of decorating the houses has a strong influence. When you stroll along the shoreline of the Lake, just across the city centre, you can find the site for the Bregenz Festival with the giant floating stage getting ready for this year’s opera - Carmem.
