London

You can fly with Austrian Airlines to London! Visit the historical city and pay a visit to the majestic Buckingham palace and view the notorious changing of the palace guards. London is one of the cultural capitals of the world with a whole host of tourist attractions such as the magnificent British library, home to the famous Magna Carta or the British Museum where the glorious Rosetta stone resides. Take a ride on one of the famous red London buses or black taxis to get to where you need to be around the sprawling city center. But don't miss out on a visit to the imposing houses of parliament or the immense tower clock Big Ben. If you are hungry make sure to order the traditional dish of fish "n" chips which is usually available from most restaurants in the capital.

SHOPPING in London

Honest Jon?s

Rumour has it there are people who go on holiday, pop in the next record store and leave it only two weeks later. If you are such an enthusiast you should not miss out on Honest Jon's. Here, they sell any record that is launched onto the market.   Specialising on jazz, funk and reggae, you will also find an "outernational" department. At a closer look it reveals a creative name for ethno, i.e. music from countries that you've always wanted to visit yourself. As you will probably never get there anyway, you are buying a record on the topic in rainy London.   Apart from competitors Honest Jon's also sells its own cult label supporting, among others, the Trembling Bells, Katell Keineg or Africa Boogaloo. What is served here on the turntables is the rhythm that is en vogue at the moment.

EAT in London

Harwood Arms

Then, in pre-Jamie Oliver times, in the fish-and-chips era when England was still a culinary nobody, the following slogan applied quite fittingly: Who wants to eat well in England eats Indian food. But that's not true any longer: Even the Indians orient themselves along England's new cooking wave, and they have to work hard for not being crushed by the Empire's chefs.   People have started to eat English again, and they still do it at pubs. But even pubs, as we can see with the Harwood Arms, have undergone a facelift. Instead of the former dark and decent atmosphere you enjoy your meals in a bright and friendly, albeit still rustic ambience. And you are served all kinds of venison. From pigeons to deer the English shoot everything that is not quick enough to fly or run away only to serve it thereafter as excellent venison on your plate.   There, it tickles your palate in liaison with carrots, beans and mint, only to be followed by a butter milk pudding and chef de cuisine's Mike Robinson's recommendation. The latter, by the way, is also the head of a cooking school.

You don't walk up to the reception, the reception comes to you. Instead of waiting in line you can take a seat at the lobby. The waiter-style staff will soon arrive with a portable PC for check-in. What on the outside appears to be Victorian, will catapult you into the 21st century inside.   Today, the former station hotel enthuses its business clientele with modern design. A few pieces of the old era have remained though: mighty pillars, stucco and wide stairs remind you of times gone by, but only in the public areas. The rooms is the big surprise: you won't find any of the fancy 19th-century design, the interior is straight and modern and smells of work: An oversize desk plus lamp by Jacobson and W-Lan are customized for business people.   But there is cosiness as well: The large beds and well-stocked mini bars alone make ambitious workaholics tune out - or turn on the flats-screen. Double room from 320 Euros per night.

SIGHTS in London

Hydrohealing

Standing in the centre of London doesn't mean you've connected with your own centre. The only remedy against the ongoing traffic noise and the never-ending hunts for fashion labels is fuelling your energy flow with water. Day Spa Hydrohealing has the right elixir against the hustle and bustle outside, cradling the inner peace in bottles.   Once you leave this place, you will feel deeply relaxed even in the longest tourist queue. And that's how it works: enter, close the door, leave the noise behind, and relax. And you need to be truly relaxed to face the acupuncture and colon irrigation treatments waiting for you. First, they prick you with needles, and then they put a hose into somewhere else?but all in a very exclusive atmosphere, of course. To round off this tortures, your skin is put into a glass to create a vacuum, the process being called cupping therapy. But if you have survived all this, you can relax during foot and face massages - to the benefit of the immune system. If you don't belong to the brave ones, you can still have yourself wrapped in foil to improve your body shape line or minimise cellulites with diverse anti-something treatments. While the bikini waxing is painful again, it adds the final touch though before you are sent back onto the street again: deeply relaxed and one with yourself.
