The previous building was apparently no longer deemed impressive enough to house the remains of the Three Wise Men, which Archbishop Rainald von Dassel had brought to Cologne from Milan after the latter city was conquered in 1164. Because of these relics, the cathedral became one of the most important places of pilgrimage in Europe. Its two massive towers have dominated the city’s skyline since their completion in 1880. At 157.38 metres, the northern tower is 7cm taller than the southern one.

Today the cathedral is Cologne’s second-tallest structure, surpassed only by the telecommunications tower. The cathedral covers almost 8,000 square metres of floor space and can hold more than 20,000 people.

Ballet – Napoli

Napoli” is a classic example of the spirit and style of the great Danish choreographer, August Bournonville. It has been in the repertoire of the Royal Danish Ballet since its premiere on March 29, 1842 in a nearly unbroken performing tradition. Passed from one “Balletmester” (the Danish theater’s word for artistic director) to the next; from one generation to the next, with slight changes and subtle alterations which have for the most part increased the clarity of the story and the depth of the characters. Especially the first and third acts can be thought of, with very little doubt, as directly connected to Bournonville’s choreography. The second act of Bournonville’s original production was criticized for having too much dancing!!!! This resulted in the master himself constantly cutting and restating large sections for many years, and this continued after his death in 1905 with his successors’ productions. By the 1930’s Bournonville’s version was considered lost.

Herzog Friedrich Street in the centre of Innsbruck is the ideal starting point for exciting adventures in the Capital of the Alps. Admire Innsbruck’s famous shining landmark, the Golden Roof (link), surrounded by colourful façades, bay windows and charming arcades. Plus the magnificent Nordkette mountain range (link) towers over the city with stunning peaks that reach over 2,000 metres above sea level. It’s no wonder this setting is one of the most photographed in Innsbruck.

From here, continue through the arch by the Imperial Palace (link), past the Tyrolean State Theatre (link) and the bandstand by the pond, to one of Innsbruck’s urban green spaces. The Imperial Gardens (link) with their giant chess board and diverse plants and trees are a wonderful place for a stroll, for pleasant refreshments or to simply relax in the heart of the city – take some time to enjoy it.

However, if time is too tight, there is another way to get up above the city: the medieval City Tower (link).

If you decide to treat yourself to a trip up to the Nordkette mountain range, why not enjoy the delicious culinary delights 2,000 metres above sea level?

Altes Schloss or Old Castle was built in 1320 and expanded over the centuries along with the family’s fortunes. Inside the castle, the Landesmuseum Württemberg (landesmuseum-stuttgart.de) displays the state’s bounty of historical artifacts, some dating back as far as the Neolithic period.

Birkenkopf – During World War II bombing, 60 percent of Stuttgart was leveled. No part of the city remained untouched and massive reconstruction began after the war. The rubble and debris of the war’s destruction was literally funneled into Birkenkopf, a hill outside the city center created by pushing the wreckage out of the city. Walk to the top for sweeping views of the countryside and city.

Fernsehturm – One of the best loved ways to get a sense of Stuttgart and its vine-covered surroundings is from the 712-foot tall Fernsehturm (fernsehturm-stuttgart.com). Built in 1956 as the first television tower of its kind, the sharply pointed structure is reminiscent of Seattle’s Space Needle. Visitors can take in 360-degree views of the city.

Porsche Museum

Hard surfaces and boxy lines make the striking Porsche Museum (porsche.com) a complete visual juxtaposition compared to the smooth, sweeping lines of the hundreds of cars inside.

You can visit the Turkish market of Berlin

Most Berliners need to leave Berlin fairly often to remind themselves of how much they actually love the city. For those of us who are strapped for cash and time (or just love Berlin as is), the Turkish market acts as a stand-in for that trip to southern Europe we have been planning for so long. When exiting the U-Bahn at Schönleinstrasse, you enter a whirlwind of bargaining, vegetable mongers shouting out their best deals, piles of fresh breads and sweets, and women boiling fresh corn for you to enjoy as you stroll (or, more accurately, squeeze) through the market.

Shopping here can sometimes cause anxiety, with all the yelling, children running every which way, and the pressure to find the best veggies and humus. After you’ve come a number of times, you find your favorite vendors and decide which cheap fabric stand in worthy of investing in.

OR You can visit
“Kudamm” is the most popular shopping promenade in Berlin. And one the key shopping streets in Germany to boot. The 3.5 km (2.2 mile) long boulevard leads from Breitscheidplatz with the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church in Charlottenburg as far as Rathenauplatz in Grunewald, where the exclusive villa quarter of the West Berlin City begins. Around Breitscheidplatz you will find many boutiques, shops and businesses. The quiet off-Kudamm side streets like Fasanenstraße, the poshest shopping mile in Berlin, you will find full of prestigious boutiques and top-class cafés situated in magnificent turn of the century buildings. Many exclusive fashion labels, in particular, have made their home between Memorial Church and Adenauerplatz – ranging from Lagerfeld via Valentino through to Yves Saint Laurent. But it’s the hidden treasures that dictate the services provided. In Tauentzienstraße, directly on Wittenbergplatz, is the famous Kaufhaus des Westens, or KaDeWe for short. Here spread over seven floors is a high-end range of products and luxury goods. Particular highlights are the sixth and seventh floor of the acclaimed department store. The sixth floor contains one the largest food departments of any department store in the world – the delicatessen section. And on the seventh floor is the fashionable restaurant with its glass dome allowing a wonderful panoramic view of Berlin.

The diverse range of shopping possibilities offered by Kurfürstendamm and Tauentzienstraße is rounded off by numerous trend chain shops like H&M, S. Oliver or Zara.

Later in the return to hotel overnight stay at hotel.

You can visit the Turkish market of Berlin.

Most Berliners need to leave Berlin fairly often to remind themselves of how much they actually love the city. For those of us who are strapped for cash and time (or just love Berlin as is), the Turkish market acts as a stand-in for that trip to southern Europe we have been planning for so long. When exiting the U-Bahn at Schönleinstrasse, you enter a whirlwind of bargaining, vegetable mongers shouting out their best deals, piles of fresh breads and sweets, and women boiling fresh corn for you to enjoy as you stroll (or, more accurately, squeeze) through the market.

Shopping here can sometimes cause anxiety, with all the yelling, children running every which way, and the pressure to find the best veggies and humus. After you’ve come a number of times, you find your favorite vendors and decide which cheap fabric stand in worthy of investing in.

OR You can visit

“Kudamm” is the most popular shopping promenade in Berlin. And one the key shopping streets in Germany to boot. The 3.5 km (2.2 mile) long boulevard leads from Breitscheidplatz with the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church in Charlottenburg as far as Rathenauplatz in Grunewald, where the exclusive villa quarter of the West Berlin City begins. Around Breitscheidplatz you will find many boutiques, shops and businesses. The quiet off-Kudamm side streets like Fasanenstraße, the poshest shopping mile in Berlin, you will find full of prestigious boutiques and top-class cafés situated in magnificent turn of the century buildings. Many exclusive fashion labels, in particular, have made their home between Memorial Church and Adenauerplatz – ranging from Lagerfeld via Valentino through to Yves Saint Laurent. But it’s the hidden treasures that dictate the services provided. In Tauentzienstraße, directly on Wittenbergplatz, is the famous Kaufhaus des Westens, or KaDeWe for short. Here spread over seven floors is a high-end range of products and luxury goods. Particular highlights are the sixth and seventh floor of the acclaimed department store. The sixth floor contains one the largest food departments of any department store in the world – the delicatessen section. And on the seventh floor is the fashionable restaurant with its glass dome allowing a wonderful panoramic view of Berlin.

Walking, cycling, climbing and high-Alpine tours are popular activities in summer and autumn. Every year, the four-thousand-metre summits attract many Alpinists. 400 km of walking trails also guide guests who are not overly adept at climbing through the mountainscape around Zermatt.

The cog railway operates between Zermatt and the 3089-metre-high Gornergrat. The summit offers up spectacular views of the Matterhorn, the glaciers and the Monte-Rosa massif.

At 3883 metres in altitude, Europe’s highest vantage point able to be reached by cableway also offers a fascinating panoramic vista of the Matterhorn (4478 metres) and summits of the Swiss, Italian and French Alps. The glacier palace can be admired 15 metres beneath the ice surface. Six ski lifts as well as a cableway provide access to the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise, the highest summer ski region of the Alps on the Theodul glacier.

Day 08: Lucerne – Interlaken – Lauterbrunnen – Murren – Brienz
Lauterbrunnen

The valley town of Lauterbrunnen (795 m) is the starting point for some of the best known excursion destinations in the Jungfrau region. A rack railway links Lauterbrunnen with the sunny terrace of Wengen on the eastern flank of the Lauterbrunnen Valley and the Kleinen Scheidegg, the station where you change trains for the onward journey to the Jungfraujoch. On the opposite side of the valley is the holiday resort of Mürren, accessible from Lauterbrunnen and Stechelberg. The cableway from Stechelberg continues to the peak of the Schilthorn at 2971 m, famous for being the setting where the 007 classic, ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’ was filmed.

A few kilometres further up the valley from Lauterbrunnen, accessible along a narrow mountain road, is the peaceful little mountain village of Isenfluh, perched on a steep rock terrace at 1024 m, and starting point for walks in the romantic Saustal and further to Mürren and the Lobhorn mountains.

Highlights
  • Isenfluh – is one of the typical Swiss mountain villages and yet it is special. The access is via one of the few road loop tunnels and above the village the brows of Eiger, Mönch and Junfrau come into view.
  • Trümmelbach Falls near Lauterbrunnen – one of the wildest glacier ravines in Europe with the ten waterfalls of the Trümmelbach hidden amongst the rocks.
  • Staubbach Falls – on the edge of the village of Lauterbrunnen. The water plunges almost 300 metres from an overhanging cliff face. It was the inspiration for one of Goethe’s famous poems.
  • Schilthorn – on the trail of James Bond. Visitors to the Piz Gloria revolving restaurant at 2970 m can enjoy the view of 40 mountain peaks and 20 glaciers.
  • UNESCO world heritage themed trail in the depths of the Lauterbrunnen Valley – the first themed trail in the Junggfrau-Aletsch world natural heritage site and devoted to waterfalls, alpine farming, power stations and mountain hotels.
  • Kleine Scheidegg – impressive view of the north face of the Eiger and the four-thousand- metre peaks of the Jungfrau and Mönch. Also the starting point of the rack railway to the Jungfraujoch.
  • Jungfraujoch (3454m) – the Jungfrau railway has been plying its way through a 7-km-long tunnel to the ‘Top of Europe’, the ultimate excursion destination in the Bernese Oberland, since 1912.
  • Jungfraujoch (3454m) – the Jungfrau railway has been plying its way through a 7-km-long tunnel to the ‘Top of Europe’, the ultimate excursion destination in the Bernese Oberland, since 1912.
HMurren

Impressive views of the opposing mountain summits can also be enjoyed from Mürren. The holiday resort is the starting point for walks (200 km of walking trails), excursions and experiences. A funicular leads to the Allmendhubel, immediately above the village at an altitude of 1907 metres. Themed walks such as the North Face Trail, providing historical mountaineering information on the north faces, and the Flower Panorama Trail invite visitors to discover the region. Playgrounds and picnic areas are provided for families with children.

More demanding tours lead into the nature reserve at the rear of the Lauterbrunnen valley, as well as through the Sefinen valley and over the Sefinenfurgge pass into the neighbouring Kiental.

Highlights
  • Schiltalp Hut – Venjoy the spectacular vista of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau trio from this cozy authentic Alpine hut. The delicious Alpine cheese of the Jungfrau Region is produced here using traditional methods.
  • Candlelit hotel in the rear Lauterbrunnen valley – the Obersteinberg Hotel is illuminated by candlelight, all cooking is done on a wood stove. Mules haul provisions up to an altitude of 1800 metres, and the Alpine cheese dairy provides specialties that might well have been known 200 years ago.
Brienz

A walk along the traffic-free lake promenade, past small boat ports and playgrounds, is a refreshing experience. In summer locals and visitors come to enjoy a swim. The view of the lake with ever-changing moods is a unique experience. And for an even more intense lake experience, we recommend a cruise, for example on board the historic salon paddle steamer «Lötschberg».

The two railway stations are just a short distance away from the ship embarkation point: Brienz is located on the narrow-gauge railway line which links the famous holiday destinations of Interlaken, Meiringen-Hasliberg, Brünig, Lucerne and Engelberg. The other station is the small base station of the steam rack-railway up the BrienzerRothorn panorama and hiking peak.

At the Ballenberg Open-air Museum a look into the kitchens, chambers, living rooms and workshops of the authentically reconstructed houses and farms of agricultural Switzerland dating from the 16th to the 19th century prove that this museum is not about showing off a collection of dusty rareties but instead is dedicated to treating visitors to a real experience.

Highlights
  • Ballenberg Open-air Museum – 100 centuries-old buildings from all parts of Switzerland, farm animals, gardens, workshop demonstrations and cosy guesthouses.
  • BrienzerRothorn – 2350 metres above seal level with a wonderful panorama view – accessible by way of the only rack-railway in Switzerland which is regularly powered by steam.
  • Lake Brienz Shipping – steam cruises on the most close-to-nature lake in Switzerland.
  • Swiss School of Wood Sculpting – examples of this art; in the shape of figures or signposts – are dotted around the whole village.
  • Giessbach Falls – thundering waterfalls in a forest setting, accommodation or coffee and cake at the restored JugenstilGrandhotel**** Giessbach.
Day 9: Lucerne – Zurich – Rhinefall – Zurich – Lucerne
Rhinefalls

Due to tectonic shifts in the Ice Age, the Rhine River was forced into a new riverbed over 15,000 years ago. The Rhine Falls came into being at the transition point where hard chalk turned into soft gravel. Over a breadth of 150 meters, several hundred cubic meters of water rush into the depths at the rate of 23 meters per second.

In the middle of it all stands a mighty rock that has withstood the elements for a thousand years. The rock can be reached on a circular tour of the Rhine Falls, during which one can observe the natural spectacle from up close. Virtually in the middle of the waterfall, visitors stand on platforms that jut out and partially hover over the Rhine. The castles of Wörth and Laufen can be reached by river boat, and very daring visitors can rent canoes.

The Schloss Laufen complex has sported an added sparkle since March 2010. In addition to the new visitors’ centre, a children’s playground and the “Historama” (interactive exhibition about the Rhine Falls) have been opened. The new adventure trail with its dual lift system and the Belvedere Trail make for easy access to the magnificent Rhine Falls.

Day 10: Lucerne –Bad Ragaz– Lucerne
Bad Ragaz

The two golf courses in Bad Ragaz ideally complement the spa. The Bad Ragaz home mountain, the Pizol, and the plain of the Rhine Valley provide wonderful biking and hiking country. There is a popular cycling and inline skating route on the nearby Rhine Dam and marked Nordic walking trails are also to be found on the Pizol. The 5-lake walk on mount Pizol, which takes about four hours to complete, passes five crystal clear mountain lakes and, with its magnificent views of the eastern Swiss alpine landscape, it is a classic among mountain hikes.

From Bad Ragaz there are rewarding excursions into Heidi country, to which Bad Ragaz belongs; to the nearby Principality of Liechtenstein; to Chur; the castle at Sargans; St. Gallen and Lake Constance.

Highlights
  • Tamina Gorge – a wild, mysterious, narrow gorge near Pfäfers with cliffs up to 70 metres high, where the most prolific and energising thermal water (pure, warm spring) in Europe gushes from a chamber deep in the mountain at 36.5°C
  • Ancient Bad Pfäfers – beautiful walk from Bad Ragaz through the thermal ravine to Bad Pfäfers where kings and princesses once bathed, and where there are now two museums and a Paracelsus memorial.
  • Tamina Thermal Springs – the thermal spa centre near the Grand Hotel has two indoor pools and one open-air bath with whirlpool, water chute, waterfall, spa bath, spa grotto with massage jets.
  • Pizol – at 2220m, the home mountain of Bad Ragaz offers a wonderful view of the Rhine Valley right across to Lake Constance and plenty of trails for hikers, Nordic walkers, cyclists and skiers.
  • Heidi experience – the home of this children’s storybook heroine offers Heidi experience trails on the Schwarzbüel Alp, the Pizol and above Maienfeld. Other Heidi attractions are also available.
