Chicago

Chicago
Chicago is situated right on the Lake Michigan where the city beaches attract tourists and locals during the warm summer months. For all first-visitors the Sears Tower is not only the landmark of the city but it should be the first sight to visit and to enjoy the view from the 103rd floor. In the elevator on the way up you will feel like blasting off. For more spectacular views you can hop on a boat and enjoy a different view. Chicago also offers interesting museums like the Museum of Science and Industry, the Cernan Earth and Space Center or the Adler Planetarium & Astronomy Museum. For dining and entertainment at night the Navy Pier has a lot to offer. Watch out for the two performance stages and activities around.

Where to eat in Chicago

Where to eat in Chicago
Alinea
The rooms of this temple of creativity are dipped in a mystic half-dark, elegant dark wooden tables are the stage for a 24-course menu full of surprises. Mastermind Grant Achatz expends all efforts so as to carry gusto to a pleasurable extreme. More than half of the dishes is served on newly invented service elements. That is swinging spits, stands or plate landscapes designed by artists Martin Kastner specially for Alinea. Antenna, anti-plate or 2D-3D is what he calls his designs. The presentation of the dishes is therefore quite unusual: you will suck tapioca pearls out of glass cylinders, hibiscus and crème fraîche or a piece of bacon is hanging on a wire just like a trapeze artist. The dishes are ingenious creations that have already become classics, for example the pheasant in tempura dough with apple and shallot, skewered on an oak breach with smouldering leaves that smell of forest and barbecue.

Trump Hotel
The restaurant is called Sixteen and can be found - where else would it be? - on the 16th floor of the Trump Hotel. Starred culinary pleasures is provided for by chef Thomas Lents - who creates American cuisine inspired by a touch of France. The encore is the phenomenal panorama view on Lake Michigan and Chicago River. The 92 levels of the minimalist steel skyscraper houses 339 rooms and suites. The building was completed in 2009 and integrates seamlessly into the city's skyline. From 53 rooms you have direct access to the spa, which means you can happily scurry around the hallways in your bathrobe. The elegant swimming area is enormous and the view from the fitness centre on Lake Michigan and the river provides extra motivation. Too much action? Okay, a body peeling with hot chocolate will make you relax. The perfect activity for the many newlyweds in the Trump Tower - since a wedding can be quite exhausting. Double rooms from 240 euros.

Robin Richman
Robin Richman and her eponymous store are firmly established in Chicago's fashion scene. Her story began in 1997 with a line of hand-knitted jumpers and the opening of her store in order to display them. Summer was coming and Robing realised that the demand for knitwear during the warm months is rather weak. Therefore she needed to expand her range of goods. She contacted friends such as fashion icon Marc Le Bihan and the girls from the label Antipast and from then on also sold designs by other designers. In contrast to other boutiques Robin Richman does not want to chase fast moving trends but represent a selection of continuous styles. Her shoes, dresses, jewellery and accessories are offbeat and sometimes eccentric, they testify to a great extent of imagination and sometimes have a bit of patina. Today Richman sells fashion by more than 70 brands in her store - unfortunately that doesn't leave much time for her own knitwear line.

Al Capone Tour
According to the yellow pages Al Capone has traded with antiques in the early decades of the past century, that is with second-hand furniture. What else did Alphonse Gabriel aka Al Capone need in order to become the most notorious criminal in America? Gambling, alcohol and prostitution. These were the ingredients with which he stirred up the Chicago underworld. Moreover, with his cover-up tactics - he invested illegal revenues in laundry services - he laid the foundation for money laundering. How exactly the crafty self-exposer managed to do so remains unclear. His domain in the Windy City, however, is not. The Haunting of Al Capone tour by tour provider Weird Chicago follows the most important locations of Al Capone's activities. Many of his buildings are already torn down and replaced by new complexes. His ghost, however, is said to be still around. That's why Troy Taylor and Ken Melvoin-Berg take Capone fans to Mt Carmel Cemetry in Hillside, too - where the gangster boss was buried. Hopefully, for good!
