Travel tip April

When the sun is shining and everything begins to bloom, there’s only one thing you want to do: get out into the countryside. No matter whether you prefer Copenhagen or Munich, both of these cities have a huge choice of cycling and hiking trails.


Wonderful Copenhagen

The Danes are the happiest people in the world, according to the 2013 World Happiness Report. Hardly surprising, because green is known to make you happy and the whole country is simply bursting with nature and a sustainable lifestyle. This is also evident in the Danish capital of Copenhagen, where everybody cycles everywhere: to work, to school, to meet friends. That keeps them healthy – and makes them happy.

Ask people who live in Munich where their favourite spot is and the answer is quite likely to be the Isar. The river flows through the centre of the metropolis and major ecological restoration projects have been carried out in recent years. The meadows along the banks now have numerous bathing beaches, cycle tracks and even shelter for a beaver. One highlight in Munich is the English Garden, where people seeking escape from the hustle and bustle of the city can jog, cycle, go for walks or simple relax and do nothing. The brave and bold can surf on the Eisbach, a small tributary of the Isar. And when it’s time to take a break, you are simply spoilt for choice: enjoy a traditional hearty Bavarian snack at one of the numerous beer-gardens or under the shade of a chestnut tree.
