Our 2020 brochure is out now and you may notice there are a few locations you haven’t heard of. In this blog post you’ll discover what to expect in these beautiful, lesser-known areas.
Titisee-Neustadt is a charming municipality in the south of Germany, in the Black Forest Nature Park. It may be a small place but there’s plenty of activities to get up to when visiting.
On Hochfirst Mountain you’ll find Hochfirst Tower, a viewing platform that was originally built out of wood but has since been rebuilt using steel. This 25-meter-high tower allows you to see the idyllic Titisee Lake, Feldberg massif and Alps on a clear day.
If you prefer to keep your feet on the ground, take a stroll by Lake Titisee and engross yourself in the surrounding forest or climb the low mountains.
The town of Bari may have a rich heritage and strong historic feel to it, but it does showcase many modern aspects including a vibrant nightlife and bustling street-food scene.
Explore Bari’s attractions by weaving through the Old Town’s narrow alleyways. You’ll discover the awe-inspiring Norman-Swabian Castle and Piazza Mercantile filled with local shops, cafes and restaurants.
One of the city’s highlights is Basilica San Nicola, an 11th-century, Romanesque church dedicated to Saint Nicholas. This religious building holds the remains of Santa Claus in a stone chamber beneath the floor, which you can also visit. Enjoy stone-carved arches looming over the aisle and altar inside and rounded archways on its exterior.
Eindhoven, the Netherlands
Although Eindhoven may have slipped under your radar, there’s still plenty of time to explore its vibrant and innovative features. It’s best known for its design and technology aspects like its old Philips factories that now act as trendy restaurants, and power stations turned into shops.
The easiest way to get around Eindhoven is by bike so why not cycle through the Van Gogh Roosegaarde Cycle Path? It’s inspired by his iconic Starry Night painting. Or you can try out the world’s first floating cycle path, the Hovenring.
This stunning metropolis is home to an extensive collection of museums, all showcasing unique artefacts such as modern art in the Abbemuseum and historic electricals in the Philips Museum.
Filled with buzzing bars, unique street art and charming restaurants, it’s no wonder that Poznań made it to our 2020 brochure. Situated halfway between Warsaw and Berlin, this city a great starting point if you’re yet to visit Poland.
The Old Market Square is home to the 16th-century Municipal Scales Building, various market stalls and the Renaissance-styled Town Hall. At 12pm every day, the hall’s clock with two mechanical billy goats goes off, meaning they come out of the tower and butt their heads together 12 times.
However, if you wish to escape the bustling city life, visit Lake Malta and wander around its surrounding parks and woodland areas.
