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.

Shopping

Shopping in London
Blitz
John Howlin is proud - of his extensive Swatch collection from the 80s. At the age of 13 he already preferred second hand military pants over hip jeans. This preference has stayed: with his partners he renovated an old furniture factory and since 2011 he displays his favourite pieces at the Blitz vintage department store - which very much resembles an art installation.   A yellowed book to your left, a smart suitcase on your right. Next to it: sun glasses, records and a cinema armchair. And in between? Venerable designer pieces by Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen and garments from the American 40s and 50s. You won't be able to leave the store with burgundy brick walls and original floor boards very quickly, that's for sure. 9,000 square metres, spread over two floors are full of mementos, things never seen before and other eye catchers. Which makes it quite difficult to find John's watches.

Andaz
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

London Eye
London has had its own Giant Ferris Wheel for ten years, stealing the show from Vienna with a height of 135 metres compared to the Viennese landmark of a mere 60 metres of height. But the Giant Ferris Wheel in Vienna's Prater amusement park is faster, one round-trip taking 10-12 minutes depending on the visitors that want to get on it at the bottom.   The London Eye won't stop but takes on visitors at full speed - and still it takes 30 minutes for one round-trip. You won't get bored anyway as on clear days the view takes in 40 kilometres. That means you can wave all the way from the glass capsules to Windsor Castle. In the mood for a stylish party? The London Eye can be rented for birthdays, weddings or Halloween, and if you feel like cuddling up you can also rent yourself a private capsule along with champagne and caviar. What the Vienna Giant Ferris Wheel and the London Eye have in common: they were both designed by Britons.   The occasion in London was obvious: The Giant Ferris Wheel, after all, symbolises the wheel of time and the movement into a new millennium, whereas in Vienna it was only the Emperor who celebrated an anniversary.

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!
