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.

Long haul

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.

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.

Public Chicago
Luxury for everyone. That was the mantra of hotel guru Ian Schrager when opening the first of his Public Hotels in Chicago. And he kept his word: the venerable 1926 building was upgraded through a careful facelift. Airy and timeless are the signature qualities of the puristic design. Dazzling white, vintage chandeliers, antique as well as new mirrors and an old train station clock above the reception that runs backwards are the features of the lobby which is named the living room. Elegant white also brings comfort into the rooms, supplemented by Thonet chairs, ironic black and white photos of cows with hats and marble walls in the bathroom. One institution remained: the Pump Room, former hot spot frequented by Marilyn Monroe or Humphrey Bogart. Jean-Georges Vongerichten was invited to create the menus: shrimp toast with lemon aioli or crisp Viennese schnitzel. Delicious treats by super head chef - just as we know them from him. Double rooms from 140 euros.

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.
