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.

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.

Themse
A cold period, a lot of dirt and a Giant Ferris Wheel: the Thames has seen a lot. In the 17th century the Thames was frozen most of the time and people went ice-curling and sledging on it. With the onset of the thaw period the focus shifted onto coal: The 18th century marked the era of trade ships, providing the Empire with coal and wealth. But doom was inevitable: The biggest maritime disaster in English history happened here as well, when a pleasure boat collided with a cargo ship and 640 people died. The river was in a bad shape back then: Due to misrouted sewage even the Parliament hat to move out because Westminster - and the whole town - was reeking. Today, when sewers and filter systems get rid of the dirt, the Thames is one of the cleanest rivers once again. And probably the whale that got lost in it in 2006 thought the same - even if he didn't find the way back to the sea again anyway. You see: A walk along the Thames is worthwhile. It's not just any river but one that defied the cold, the dirt and an inconvincible whale. And the buildings on its banks - Big Ben, the Palace of Westminster or London Eye - are quite nice as well.

Wolseley
The former showroom for luxury limousines runs smoothly again today. In 2003 the Wolseley opened its doors to illustrious guests with a blend of high ceilings and expensive food. If you are keen on silver tableware and arrogant waitresses, they send you to Vienna - or to the Wolseley, where the goulash comes from Hungary, the salad from Nice and the guests from Planet Young and Beautiful. If you are lucky, you are rubbing shoulders with some London celeb. If you are not so lucky, you might be underdressed and they seat you at a corner table close to the toilet. As compensation the menu is overpriced. Even when called Arnold Bennet, an omelette should not cost 10 pounds. Salad for 16 pounds is not made of gold (but fitting the price for gold) and Beluga Caviar for 125 pounds is still only made from fish eggs. If you, however, don't mind the exaggerated prices, you should come here for the ambience's sake in any case. The chandeliers, the black pillars and golden ornaments perfectly match breakfast with croissant and coffee à la Mozart. If you miss what is typically English, you should stay until 5 o'clock tea is served.
