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

Homewood Suites
If you want to stay at the pulsating heart of Chicago there are many glossy luxury hotels. But you can also go with a more comfortable option. The Homewood Suites are particularly suitable for families who want more space than a common hotel room provides. The prices for these casual and spacious apartments with two rooms are affordable. If you want to cater for yourself - no problem: there is a fully-equipped kitchen and the fridge is filled on your arrival. What distinguishes the hotel from the masses are extras and service. The grocery shopping is done for you and free of charge and a warm breakfast buffet and dinner with several small dishes from Monday to Thursday (even a glass of beer or wine) are included. You don't even pay for fitness and workout. The plus for kids: dabbling in the pool, and each apartment is equipped with a video game console. Family apartments from 135 euros.

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.

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!

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.
