Hamburg-Altona is a colourful, edgy, diverse and easygoing neighbourhood. It’s small enough for everyone to know each other, yet big enough to still get lost

Bahnhofsviertel Frankfurt

Bahnhofsviertel is a district in the central region of Frankfurt am Main, where is located the Hauptbahnhof, the central train station.

Let’s be FESCH! A FESCH’MARKT Close Up

While it’s not unusual for people to queue up for beer, it does seem a bit unusual to queue up in front of a brewery. Yet this is a phenomenon that is known to occur at least twice a year in Vienna, and it’s the usual suspects that are responsible: the crew of the FESCH’MARKT design market, that has picked this extraordinary spot to host one of the freshest events in the city.

Indian cuisine in Leipzig

Over half a million people currently live in Leipzig. Established 1,000 years ago, the town at the crossroads of the Via Regia and Via Imperii trade routes was granted city rights in 1065. Leipzig subsequently developed into an important exhibition and trade metropolis. The town on the Pleiße and White Elster rivers has always exuded cosmopolitan flair, remaining a multicultural melting pot to this day. And this is naturally also reflected in the culinary offerings.

Munich’s maharajahs – eating Indian in the Bavarian capital

But a capital city can be as unnavigable as the streets of Mumbai, and with such a huge amount of choice when it comes to Indian restaurants, the decision isn’t always an easy one. Especially when every second locale is called Ganesha, Mumbai, Little India or New Delhi…! To say nothing of the décor: sparkling napkin holders, walls painted anything from blue to dark red, perfectly ironed table linens, ruched curtains, Hindu figurines, waiters in tails – is it all part of an urban design concept? Not exactly! Indian restaurants are often a smorgasbord of styles that don’t mesh well and that can almost make you feel lost in the all the chaos.
