Düsseldorf: The Longest Bar in the World

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When coming to Düsseldorf, which is located in Western Germany, a lot of people wander through the old town, trying to find ‘the longest bar in the world’. Especially tourists are confused by the term, as it is often mistaken for being real. Unfortunately it is not - the meaning is only symbolic and means if all of the bars from the over 250 pubs in the old town would be put together, one long bar would be created.

Coffee & Cake – The Viennese Coffee House Culture

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What does literature have to do with coffee? A whole lot actually, at least when it comes to Vienna. Considered as part of the UNESCO World Heritage, the Viennese Coffee House Culture is not just popular but even considered to be an essential part of Vienna’s traditions. And the Viennese agree completely, thinking of it as a natural core value that they act upon daily. Naturally, the Viennese Coffee House Culture as such an integral aspect of Viennese tradition also comes with a long history.

The Winter Season is here: Our Top 5 ski resorts in Austria

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is that time of the year again! The cold white arrived, turning everything into a winter wonderland. Snowy mountains, magical icy landscapes and cold temperatures – while some curl up in the warmth under a blanket with a cup of hot chocolate or tea, others cannot wait to wax their skis, get outside into the powder snow and race down the slopes.

The only difference this year is that we will most likely all just stay in the warmth. At the moment, ski resorts in Austria and Germany are not open due to the ongoing pandemic and it might happen that they will not open at all in this winter season.

Long awaited and finally here - The opening of Berlin’s new airport

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Two weeks ago, Germany got a new big and important airport. The Berlin Brandenburg airport “Willy Brandt”, short BER, in the south of Berlin was opened on the 31st of October, nine years after the initial opening date. It is Germany’s third largest airport and comprises three terminals in total, one of which is the former airport Schönefeld. The second terminal will not be used for the time being due to reduced passenger numbers resulting from the current pandemic. All three terminals have a total capacity of 46 million passengers. With 150 sales units on 20.000 m², it is the perfect spot to do some shopping at the beginning or the end of an exciting stay in Germany’s capital.

 

On the opening day, two airplanes from EasyJet and Lufthansa were the first to bring invited passengers into Berlin. On Sunday, the 1st of November, regular flight operations started. Significantly less people than planned celebrated the opening of the airport because of the current pandemic. Before the festivities, 9.900 extras were testing all areas of the airport from April until October, to make sure that nothing would stand in the way of the opening again.
