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 stay in Chicago

Where to stay in Chicago
The Drake Hotel
The majestic Drake Hotel is the grande dame of Chicago. It was opened already in 1920 and has ever since been the most desirable address for statesmen and the blue-blooded. The dream of the founders John and Tracey Drake was to evoke admiration - something they have achieved until today. The spacious rooms combine tradition and Italian elegance: a walkable cabinet, luxury bedding, a marble bath and an iPod docking station are standard. Room service three times a day is also common courtesy, before going to bed your pillows will be even fluffed up. You'll feel like a king during the famous afternoon tea, when waiters with white gloves serve the famous pastries and a harpist provides the background music. A luxurious alternative is the oyster bar. The queen would probably be amused. There's also an in-house boutique and a gift shop, offering only the crème de la crème of course. Double rooms from 100 euros.

Sepia
Refined and rustic, vintage and modern - the Sepia impresses with a sophisticated atmosphere, without being silky. No wonder that it's not only food critics who are interested in the Sepia but also interior design magazines who write glossy features about the haunt. The kitchen bets on sustainable, mainly organic products. The fact that pasta, chutneys and jams are all home-made goes without saying. The taste of the dishes is equally inviting as the interior - they build on the best elements of Italian and French cuisine, as one can see on a plate filled with spicy cotechino sausage, green lentils and salsa verde. But also try the ox consommé with dumplings filled with marrow, goose liver and truffles. Easily understandable, perfectly staged on the plates while displaying courage for a strong taste. Also Michelle Obama has written down the Sepia on her list of her most favourite restaurants.

What to see in Chicago
Naval Museum
They are quite nice to look at, the smart uniforms of the US Navy. Depending on situation and rank the officers and soldiers march in service, full or dinner dress over the vessel. At the Great Lakes Naval Museum in Chicago you might not see them live in action, maybe individuals, but Navy fans will learn everything about the US Navy and their history.   The museum in the Northern party of the city is not big, yet, it is an official department of the Navy museum in Washington DC. In this way curations and new collections depend on what sponsors and patrons will donate. With this money the experts interpret the past of the largest naval unit in the world. Special emphasis is put on the only training camp of the Navy at this very space. In order to bond with the up-and-coming they will explain how to turn civilians into seamen. Furthermore the museum offers courses for children, for example on the history of fingerprints. Of course kids will also be able to put their own thumbs on ink and paper.

Architecture Shop
Chicago is home town of the skyscraper. After the fire catastrophe in 1871 which destroyed large parts of the city, a new era of architecture has begun. After sketches by William La Baron Jenney the first high-rise buildings with steel frame construction on the world sprung up. In 1909 Daniel Burnham submitted a master plan for the city which would later become a model for other cities. Until today Chicago is a mecca for architecture fans. The Sears Tower, the John Hancock Center and the Aon Center range among the highest buildings in the world. The best starting point for exploring these high rises is the Chicago Architecture Foundation which offers more than 70 tours through the city. At the foundation's shop you can buy the prettiest souvenirs in Chicago. In the form of decorative objects of famous designers and architects, souvenirs of architectural legends, books, illustrated books and on top of that pieces by local jewellery designers.
