What’s new?

We haven’t been idle in the past and have visited many exciting and interesting places. Little by little we will write down our experiences again in an adventure and publish them. But until then, we would like to give you the opportunity to browse our new Älgwiki articles in advance. Maybe we can help you find your new destination to explore.

Andorra – Between gray concrete and breathtaking nature

Hardly any other country can offer more contrasts in such a small area. In this small principality in the Pyrenees, temples of consumption with luxury boutiques and breathtaking mountain landscapes await the visitor, which can be explored either on skis, by bike or on foot. If your curiosity has now been piqued, you should definitely read this post until the end.

Château du Haut-Kœnigsbourg – An impressive castle with a sublime view of the surrounding area.

The Château du Haut-Kœnigsbourg is a hilltop castle near Sélestat in Alsace. It was restored on behalf of Kaiser Wilhelm II at the beginning of the 20th century and converted into a museum. The castle that can be visited today and has become a major tourist destination in the region is a mixture of historically correct elements and a product of the architect’s imagination. You can go looking for a visit and guess what was original and what was added later.

Grenen – The northernmost point of Denmark

Grenen is the northernmost point of Denmark and is under nature protection. An extraordinary natural phenomenon can be observed at the headland, because here two seas meet: Kattegat and Skagerrak. But there is much more to discover!

Monaco | Port Hercule

Côte d’Azur – Where the rich and beautiful live!

On this journey we hiked on unknown paths. Usually we are always drawn to the north. We should have taken the wrong turn somewhere, because we ended up in the south – more precisely in the south of France!
On our trip we immersed ourselves in the world of fragrances, hiked in the mountains of Andorra, visited the palace of Prince Albert II in Monaco, discovered the cities along the Côte d’Azur and tasted the culinary highlights of France. But let’s start at the beginning: Here comes our travel report from our adventure in the south of France.

Weihnachten in Schönbrunn | Christmas in Schönbrunn

Schönbrunn Christmas market

The Christmas market in front of Schönbrunn Palace has been in existence for more than 25 years. So it was more than just time for us to visit it. Traditional but also surprising moments awaited us at the largest Christmas market in Vienna.
Here you can learn more about what we have experienced here.
