    Hollywood und Beverly Hills

    June 1, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 15 °C

    Fahrt durch Beverley Hills mit dem Auto und dann weiter mit Hop on Top durch Hollywood. Walk of Fame abgelaufen, über den Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood gefahren und abends zu Fuss in Berly Hills den Rodeo Drive entlang gegangen. Beverly Hills ist ein schöner Stadtteil. Der Rodeo Drive ist die teuerste Straße der Welt, schön sich dass mal anzuschauen, aber Hollywood ist ein dreckiges Pflaster! Wir haben mittlerweile auch soviel gesehen dass wir beschlossen haben nicht mehr nach Los Angeles Downtown zu gehen, da die Stadt sowas von riesig ist, 7 spurige Autobahnen und alles verstopft!Read more

    Los Angeles: Santa Monica, Beverly Hills

    August 25, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Nachdem wir am Santa Monica Pier das Ende der legendären Route 66 gesehen haben und am Strand die Rettungsschwimmer ala Baywatch angesehen hatten, fuhren wir nach Beverly Hills. Dort sahen wir eine riesige Villa nach der anderen. Hier lässt es sich gut leben.Read more

    Beverly Hills

    October 16, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 33 °C

    After hanging out some more at The Magic Castle hotel this morning - one of my absolute fav places - I went back to the touristy Hollywood Blvd. This time to visit the Dolby Theatre for a tour. It was a fairly short tour, but interesting to get a little glimpse of the place that is the permanent host of the Oscars. And we saw an actual Oscar, of course :)

    A little later I went on a Starline “Movie Stars Homes Tour” - an event that is almost mandatory if you’re a tourist in Hollywood! I’ve done it before, but the tour guide is usually fun, and you get on a nice drive up the Hollywood Hills, Bel Air, Beverly Hills and the Sunset Strip. I don’t think we actually saw that many celeb homes, although we did drive by a few homes that are on the market in the 150-200 million dollar range. It was sad to drive past the last home that Michael Jackson lived in - coincidentally across a home once occupied by another king; Elvis!

    Speaking of Beverly Hills, after the tour I checked into the ultra luxurious Waldorf Astoria. It only opened in June so everything still looks brand new and sparkly! They have a very sleek rooftop bar and pool with amazing views. It took a while longer than normal for my room to be ready, so they treated me to a free lunch with drinks! Not bad.

    After lunch and a quick walk on Rodeo Drive, I went back to Hollywood to attend a bona fide red carpet premiere at the Chinese Theatre that I toured just the day earlier. It was the US galla premiere of the movie Geostorm starring Andy Garcia, Ed Harris and Gerard Butler as the lead. Turns out I was sitting relatively close to him in the theater, so I ended up walking behind him when we were leaving. Pretty surreal to leave a first screening of a big Hollywood movie with the guy who stars in it. The movie was a bit nuts, but pretty entertaining.

    Now it’s time for a night in one of the most fancy and luxurious of the many hotel rooms I’ve tried in this country!
