France
Come fly Austrian Airlines to France and be prepared to eat and drink your way through the most beautiful country. Paris is the bustling capital city, with the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre Museum, Notre Dame and the famous wide boulevard known as the Champs de Elysee. Stop into any brasserie or cafe as you stroll around. Outside of Paris, the many regions of France offer a variety of geography and of course, many varieties of wine. Travel south to the Cote d'Azur, Saint Tropez or Nice, and mingle with the Jet Set. Make your way through the Dordogne, with its rocky canyons and little towns. Head north from Paris to the great windswept beaches of Normandy, englufed in their great history or the great chateaus of the Loire Valley. Whether you visit the big cities or the country villages, your trip to France will leave you the most satisfied.

Hotel Square
The hotel Square in Paris is easy to find as it is located close by the Eiffel Tower. At the moment the Costes brothers build a new hotel and restaurant on the opposite side of the Seine. And when the Costes brothers build something in Paris the environment will automatically turn hip. And so is the shape of the windows which provided the name of the hotel. Architect Roger Taillibert and owner Patrick Derderian are responsible for that. The latter also had the idea of bringing art near to his guests. In a semicircularly shaped gallery in the reception hall and in the conference rooms you can marvel at sculptures and other works by Luis Tomasello or Scott Slagerman. Hopefully they are safe in the five star hotel with own garage! Absolutely recommendable is the in-house restaurant Zebra Square (the wall in screaming yellow automatically whets the appetite) and the newly designed Nuxe Spa in the basement of the hotel.

Pink Flamingo
If you've had enough of haute cuisine and endless courses, then maybe it's high time for a pizza. The Pink Flamingo is brightly coloured, kitschy and has the ambience of a neighbourhood snackbar. Even if you're not well known in the local area, you are always welcome here. The pizzas are tasty and creative and are named after well-known personalities like, La Basquiat, La Bjork and La Che. A nice idea is the picnick service. Just order your pizza and wine and the counter. Then take your pink balloon outside and find yourself a spot in the sun. The only restriction: you have to pick somewhere within sight of the pizzeria. But that shouldn't be a problem, as there are plenty of great places o the Canal Saint-Martin. As long as your balloon doesn't pop, your pizza should come to you. Hmmm!

Yukiko Paris
Paris fashion just as you imagined it: fur doesn't even appear to be too extravagant here, just simply elegant. And that pulls in the celebrities and fashionistas in droves. This charming shop is modelled on an elegant bedroom and possesses beauties from the likes of Hermes Seidenschal, Chanel and Christian Dior. The sortiment here is completed with pieces from the owners own collection. Yukikos fashion is very feminine, with the dominating materials being fur and silk. This store is an absolute hotspot in the scene with the models in the showroom and the nearby café setting the perfect ambience.

Montorgueil
As hard as it is, you have to ask your way to Rue Montorgueil. The unpronouncable district is the hippest in the whole city of Paris. Where the fish traders once did their business, those in the scene have now settled in and it's actually the same as it always has been: The houses are still yet to be renovated, the rental prices are still cheaper as elsewhere and the young and the creative are inevitably drawn here in droves. Sundays present a great opportunity to take a leisurely stroll through the area. The bars and cafés are full of people having a relaxed chat. Even the delicatessens are open on Sundays. Those that want to go home as a complete insider should come on a Saturday and visit the fashion boutiques in the golden shopping triangle between rue Montmartre and Rue du Jour. Even the lively Rue Tiquetonne boasts numerous stores, tattoo parlours, restaurants and bars. Head to one of the cafés or a bar to enjoy a comfortable end to your day. Ask around, because the top spots change quicker than you can drink a glass of wine. And don't leave without visitng the traditional Stohrer chocolate store. The quirky specialty here is La Réligieuse à l'ancienne, a church spire made from coffee and chocolate eclairs.
