Ibiza (Spain)

In 654 BC the Phoenicians constructed the first port on the Island as they just discovered it. They decided to call the Island Ibisha, with the years the name changed to Ibiza.
As it has been since then, Ibiza is and will remain one of the top trendiest islands in the world, so if you haven’t been there yet, you should go there next year.

Cannes (France)

Not only the International Film Festival attracts thousands of visitors to the city, but also the ambience that can almost stand up to the city of Beverly Hills. Of course, you can taste true delicatessen in Cannes, as well as in any French city. Take a stroll in the high-class shops. If you are looking for some adventure, you can have a 15 min ferry ride to the Sainte-Marguerite island on which the island fortress prison was built. A legend says a mysterious man spent 11 years in one of the cells with an iron mask on the face.
Will you dare visiting his cell?

Saint Tropez (France)

The original fishing village is today a much sought-after destination for the rich and famous. The 20 kilometers of beach offer enough space to get some sun and enjoy life. Saint Tropez offers a lot of shopping possibilities and the harbor invites you to a festive dinner in the evening with a view of all the small and big yachts. If you have seen the famous movie “Les gendarmes à Saint-Tropez” you will recognize some places where the movie was shot!

Nice (France)

The city does not only inspire with a great beach promenade but also with great waterfalls and their architecture. Because Nice is so close to the Italian border, you can enjoy excellent French and Italian cuisine here.
The hotel Negresco is the most famous and surprising building in Nice.

St. Moritz (Switzerland)

As long as we humans have not yet destroyed all of nature and its enchanting winter beauties, you should definitely take the opportunity to skate on black ice in St. Moritz.
Why black? Because it is a deep lake and the ice layer makes it look like you are skating on black ice. Of course, skiing or snowboarding is a must during your winter holiday in St. Moritz.

Mallorca (Spain)

With 2,779 hours of sunshine per year and 262 different beaches, Mallorca is an ideal choice for your next summer vacation. Most visitors come from Germany and England to enjoy a few relaxing days on the island.
Did you know a snail and a dragon are hidden in the facade of the city council of Palma? It is said placing them there was the revenge of the builders against the mayor of the time who refused to acknowledge their work. Will you be able to find them?

Sion (Switzerland

The southern town is situated in the middle of the mountains and offers a great opportunity to relax and enjoy the fresh mountain air, both in summer and winter. Sion is hardly visited by tourists, which guarantees a stress-free holiday. It offers great opportunities for wine and golf lovers.

Gstaad (Switzerland)

Just like Sion, Gstaad is a hardly visited destination by tourists, but offers many great things to see and do. You can, for example, be guided through the winter landscape by a sleigh pulled by Huskies. Or you can let the soul dangle above the clouds. The “Peak Walk” is about 100 meters on the glacier top along. The Ski Club of Saanen was the first one in the city and was founded in 1905, the same year as the first ski runs.
