Glockenbachviertel and Gärtnerplatz – Munich’s hippest and most charming neighborhoods

Munich’s Glockenbach und Gärtnerplatz neighborhoods are located right in the Ludwigsvorstadt-Isarvorstadt district and have become two of the hippest hot spots in the city since the 1990s– with hotelmüller München and carathotel München located conveniently right in the center of action!

24 hours in Basel – discovering the city with BaselCard

There is much to see in most cities – regardless of whether you’re planning to take a city trip or want to use some time between business meetings for a little bit of sightseeing. However, as you know, exploring a city can quickly become rather expensive.

Exploring the legacy of Hildegard von Bingen in Bingen am Rhein

Exploring the legacy of Hildegard von Bingen in Bingen am Rhein

The legacy of Hildegard von Bingen is still clearly visible in the city of Bingen, where she did most of her work. After all, the Rupertsberg Monastery, which was founded by her, used to belong to the municipality of Bingen. As Saint Hildegard lived in the 11th and 12th century, only few buildings from that time were preserved until today.
