Antwerp, Belgium

Tasty in Antwerp: Zurenborg

Zurenborg is quite possibly the most beautiful neighbourhood in Antwerp. It flaunts its belle époque grandeur like a coquettish lady. It proudly shows surprised visitors its art nouveau façades, elegant streets and squares. But the highlight is the 19th century Cogels-Osylei: sublime architecture from around the turn of the previous century.

Newcastle upon Tyne

During the last decades Newcastle upon Tyne, commonly known as Newcastle, has developed into a prominent city in terms of technical innovation and culture. This makes Newcastle one of Great Britain’s most vibrant cities and a wonderful holiday destination with great shopping hot-spots and an even better nightlife. United by seven bridges across a spectacular riverside, Newcastle (a city on the north bank of the River Tyne) and Gateshead (a town on the south bank) form a single, diverse and extremely vibrant visitor destination.

Buenos Aires

The Argentine capital is a city like no other. It has a hint of a European feel, but with a distinct Latin American flavour. It is cosmopolitan, yet autochthonous. Every street corner and narrow alleyway is teeming with art and culture, history and personality, tango, rock n' roll and football. It is a city of museums, of galleries, of classical-style cafes and world-class steakhouses, of antique markets and bookstores, a city for screams of joy at the Bombonera Stadium and midnight strolls along the majestic River Plate. Buenos Aires is a true world city in every sense of the world, and none who visit can resist its charms.
Antwerp, Belgium

Tasty in Antwerp: Het Zuid

Art lovers will appreciate the many art galleries and museums such as the FOMU | Photo Museum and M HKA | Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp. Thanks to its many well-frequented cafés and restaurants, Het Zuid is also a very popular night spot.

Graz

Graz – Austria’s culinary and cultural capital. A practical tip from the start: If you want to explore Graz, wear comfortable shoes and loose clothing. Why? Even if Graz is actually small – the second-largest city in Austria with a quarter of a million resident by no means a “big city” – you should be prepared for the fact that time also flies in the many short lanes. Comfortable footwear goes easy on busy feet here. In the historic old town with its roads, streets, squares and courtyards there’s lots to explore and even more to be enjoyed, for Graz is also the culinary capital which you should not only see but taste as well.
Antwerp, Belgium

Tasty in Antwerp: Theatre Area

The Theatre District owes its name to the many theatres here. This is the working habitat of many directors, actors, dancers and musicians: in the pubs you can almost hear the creativity bubbling away. It’s worth a visit during the day, too, because you’ll find many fashion, antique and interior design shops here, as well as two small but beautiful museums: the Maiden’s House Museum and the Museum Mayer van den Bergh.

Geneva

Geneva nestles like a sparkling jewel on the shores of Lake Geneva. Here everything exudes luxury, quality, elegance and a cosmopolitan lifestyle. The place is buzzing with people from all corners of the world. The city has excellent restaurants, exclusive shops, beautiful parks, a vibrant cultural life and interesting museums. A practical aspect is that Geneva is geographically quite small. You can wander around the town in an hour, and it is easy to go on quick one-day excursions to the idyllic surroundings.

Waterville Valley, New Hampshire

New England itself is pure charisma. The area is draped by sparkling snow in the winter, swept with fresh seaside air during spring and summer, and painted with the changing colors of its trees during autumn. Waterville Valley, Hew Hampshire is a beacon of these seasons and a proud New England town. Its resort is the focal point, lending to recreational activities throughout the seasons that include skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, hiking, mountain biking, swimming and much more. And not to be overlooked, the White Mountain National Forest also wraps Waterville Valley in its scenic landscape.

Xi'an

Xi'an, once called Chang'an, the City of Long-lasting Peace, tops the list of China's six ancient cities. The world-renowned ancient Silk Road starts here. To stand on this land is to be on the very soil where merchants from empires long relegated to the annals of history once moved, and many facets of its past as a trading post still live on in various forms. The variety of folk handicrafts that greets the visitor is bewildering. Just outside the city is the steepest mountain in the world, Hua Mountain. Here is where the pre-historic Lantian man was found, proving that human existence here dates back 500,000 years. With all this heritage behind it, Xi'an stands proud even in the face of its modernization, a spectacular testament of the magnificent legacy the Chinese are so proud of.
