Five excursion tips from our new city guides

For our city guides, we visited some city oases for you and here are a few of our favorite tips for free.

1. Berlin: 

For many Berliners, the airfield of the former Tempelhof Airport is their garden, their running track and their barbecue area. Here you can really get some sun and fresh air in the middle of the city. After flight operations were stopped, the area was converted into a public park in 2010 - the so-called “Tempelhofer Feld”. With sunbathing lawns, a skateboard park, community gardens and plenty of space for stressed-out capital city dwellers. Depending on the weather, you can also see kite surfers with landboards or huge kites. The green areas between the former runways are divided into usable space for people and various rest areas for animals. Small refreshments are available in a beer garden, in the old aircraft hangar or from small food trucks and coffee bikes scattered around the site.

2. Copenhagen: 

An absolute highlight in the Copenhagen area is a visit to the “Louisiana Museum” by the sea. In a small suburb that can be easily reached by regional train, the museum is about a ten-minute walk from the train station. There are various architecturally exciting buildings in the middle of a large park. There is modern art, regular special exhibitions, performances and a painting school for children. The museum shop is like a small department store for Danish design. There are books, fashion, ceramics, furniture and glass art. Fresh Danish classics such as smørrebrød and frikadeller are prepared in the pretty cafeteria. You can spend a whole day relaxing here.

The “Parc des Buttes-Chaumont” is located in the 19th arrondissement and is one of the largest green spaces in Paris. The park was built on the site of a former quarry, of which only the hilly structure remains today. Spread across the park you will find several pavilions, bridges, restaurants, two theaters and a large lake. For children there is a carousel northeast of the lake, some paid swing boats from the 19th century and modern playgrounds. In summer, smaller concerts take place on a hill in the southern part of the park. The park has had an Ecocert label since 2009 thanks to its ecological management. To achieve this, the gardeners avoid using chemical pesticides and allow individual lawn areas to grow into wild meadows for more biodiversity.

4. Vienna: 

The fourteenth-century “Schlosspark Laxenburg” is not directly in Vienna, but is only a short train ride away. The short journey is worth it, as you can admire the historic garden art in addition to the large park landscape, the Old Castle, the Blue Court and the romantic Franzensburg. Herbal walks and forest education seminars for children are also offered regularly. A visit to the castle is particularly idyllic in summer, when theater and outdoor concerts are offered here from June to August.

5. Postage: 

The “Piscinas de Marés” are a public bathing establishment directly on the beach promenade with a sea view. Álvaro Siza Vieira's brutalist building dates back to the 1960s and features two tidal pools for swimming and a bar.
