Cities Culture Leisure and Recreation describes travel
Recently, I attended an event at a restaurant which I was not familiar with. As usual I was impressed with the horD’oeuvres,
not only were they tasty, but you can tell the food has a fresh taste. It wasn’t until I asked Chef Aaron
Cuschieri about The Dearborn on Randolph and Dearborn that I was told that their produce is purchased daily at the market.
Not only is the food great, but the atmosphere of the restaurant is lively and youthful and the waite staff is courteous and managed well by Nick. The decor of the restaurant meets that standards of the young and mature, for they
have spacious booths, high tables and low seated tables for one’s adjustments.
You might say what does this have to do with travel, many people come into this restaurant and I am not sure if they are
tourist. Some of the best restaurant in Chicago, I learned about through my friends traveling.
The event I attended was about German Cities, something I didn’t learn on my other German excursions. The German
National Tourist Board mentioned that Germany’s inbound tourism industry show that there is potential for 121.5 million overnight stays by 2030. Some tourist will stay longer and the tourist percentage is on the incline.
Whether it is a River Cruise
visiting large cities or independent tours, Germany has so much to offer, their guests. Without counting into the fact that hotels are 7% less expensive than any other European Country, I personally am impressed with the country’s
friendliness and cleanliness.
For example, Trier, a walk through the 16 BC town can be worth taking. The drive from Luxembourg, if the flight is
priced right, to Trier is only 45 minutes from the airport. You will experience scenic and historic views especially since
the town was once the capital of the Western Roman Empire. The Unesco World Heritage includes Roman monuments, the Trierer
Dom "Trier Cathedral" and the “Liebfrauenkirche” (Church of our Lady) which stands out in Trier. Sidewalk cafes, old town and somewhere to get a good night rest is Trier, Germany’s intention of giving their welcome to tourism before heading to another small town or Heidelberg.
Tübingen, with a 16th Century “ Alte Aula” (University
Auditorium), also this season is the best for colors walking
along the Neckar Island in the middle of the river.
Augsburg, Emperor Augustus of Rome, founded Augsburg more than 2,000 years ago, a city that would become the focal point of the western world in the 15th and 16th centuries. It was the Fugger and Welser merchant dynasties commissioned artists such as Billini and Holbein who associated with notable figures including Titian, Durer and Luther. these are places renaissance, “Rathaus ( town
halls, with its Goldener Saal, (Golden Hall) and the churches hint at the power and influences held by these families.
Regardless of what you want to do in Germany, for the Passion Play is popular in 2020 and Old St. Mary Church in Chicago is accepting applications for those who wish to travel with Father Brad. Yes, traveling to Germany can be accomplished in many ways, these are only a few suggestions.
