London

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.

Stay

Stay in London
Durley House
At other hotels you may ask yourself: Is this art or may I sit on it? If you've had enough of the minimalist chic you are just at the right place at the Durley's. Here, the English cottage style reigns supreme, which will never be out of fashion. Or do you want to do without striped wallpaper, subdued light, fluffy beds, life-size fireplaces or truly cosy sofas? Smart ones say that the English only furnish their houses in such a comfortable style because the weather outside is so uncomfortable. But they are only envious: Local architects simply have skills for the feel-good factor blended with royal ambience. And that includes the service as well: The Durley House doesn't have a restaurant but who needs it anyway when being able to count on one's own butler? 24-hour service is of paramount importance here, and with the smoothly running dumbwaiter your dinner comes directly to your suite, where your butler will serve it. In the mood for eating out anyway? Then we recommend a picnic basket, the park nearby and James, of course, who will organise the details. Can you imagine anything more decadent? Yes, sure: Your Personal Shopper takes you by the hand and leads you to the places of your heart's desire and fashion's homelands: Bond Street, Knightsbridge, or Sloane Street. Double room from approx. 330 Euros per night.

Bubbledogs
When the head chef is not fully stretched in the Michelin starred restaurant, he opens his own venue. But not just any: at Bubbledogs on Charlotte Street in Camden, former Ledbury and Noma chef James Knappett and his wife Sandia Chang serve gourmet hot dogs with champagne and cocktails.   The two thereby follow the London-wide gourmet fast food trend: being served quickly, having a proper meal, and off you go. You cannot make any reservations at Bubbledogs, instead you can choose from ten different hot dogs, for example the BLT Dog covered in bacon, the truffle mayo hot dog served with caramelised salad, or the Jose Dog with salsa, pepperoni, guacamole and sour cream. But that's not it. From October on the chef himself will cook at the so-called kitchen table. Up to 19 guests will be able to observe the chef's preparations of selected menus around the stove. This - on the other hand - you can only experience with a reservation!

Marble Hill Park
Once the private playground of ladies and lords, Marble Hill Park is open to the public now. With a fantastic view of the Thames, the park is not the largest but the most beautiful park in London. On the hill you still find the villa of the Countess of Suffolk, but a sport event has become the real highlight here: Ultimate Frisbee. Do you remember the time when Frisbee was a mere pastime between sunbathing and plunging into the water? That's over now: Today, the flying disk is thrown professionally, in a team, with shirts, on a court and the like. If you want to take a look at the new trend sport, you should pass by on Sundays. From 11:30, a corner of Marble Hill Park hosts Ultimate Frisbee contests.   The rules are simple: There is a pitch, the goals are called end zone, and the teams are made up of seven players each. If you throw the disc, you are not allowed to run; if you run, you are allowed to catch and whenever the Frisbee is on the ground, it's time for the opponent to go for it. It can't be long before the sport becomes an Olympic discipline. Ultimate Frisbee is still very new, but if you want to be part of it right from the beginning you should come by and have a couple of beers with the fans.

Shopping

Camden Markets
What you will need: a lot of time and a large shopping bag. Because, as the name suggests, the Camden Markets are several markets, all at one site at the Camden district. And if you really want to know: the Camden Markets is the largest marketplace in Great Britain, with more than 100,000 visitors each weekend.   If you want to avoid the hustle and bustle, you can also pass by on weekdays and study what's offered in a more relaxed atmosphere. You will find anything from didgeridoos to bananas, inside in the market hall or open-air, and sometimes at the bazaar. Clothes, shoes, antiques, or souvenirs: It is not possible to list everything you can buy here. But, to name just one example, you will even find a Goth Guide here, showing gloomy visitors the way to the befitting tattoo and record stores or the perfect black coat.   If you are more inclined to the bright sides of life, you will also find the right stuff: petticoats for fans of yesteryear, cyber wear for the people of tomorrow, Doc Martens for the sure-footed and sexy underwear for a self-assured appearance in the bedroom. You name it - the Camden Markets will fulfil any special wish you have.
