Route 66 The first continuous road connection between Chicago and Los Angeles still makes us feel nostalgic today. It is synonymous with liberty and infinite expanses, street cruisers and »Easy Riders«, neon advertising and American diners – in short: the symbols of a nation, whose lifestyle is characterized by being »on the road«. The West was once both promise and destination – paradise on Earth. »Go California« was the motto – Route 66 was the way to get there. This magnificently illustrated volume shows you forgotten places and outstanding sights along the legendary highway.

Silk Route, Adventure Asia Fairy tales from Arabian Nights, the allure of the big cities, oriental mazes of crooked lanes and the lonesome expanses of the deserts: the Silk Route adventure. Trade relations between the Roman Empire in the west and the Middle Kingdom in East Asia already existed in Antiquity, and goods were transported along a network of routes. At the time, silk was the most important of all the commodities traded over long distances, and it was also the most valuable and most coveted. This is why the German geographer Ferdinand von Richthofen chose the name for the oldest and most famous »highway«.

At one time, Bedouins and camels characterized the southeast of the Arab world, and from its shores, merchants sailed to anywhere in the world. Today, the world comes back to the Gulf countries where rich oil deposits have brought about a fabulous boom. But humans have not yet managed to tame nature. Oman is largely dominated by deserts – the sand dunes outside Al Ain and the up to 100-meter-high dunes of the Wahiba Sands are famous. The Al-Hajar Mountains meanwhile – inhospitable, craggy, rugged, wild in some places – remind us of the very origins of earth. 39

Coral reefs shimmer on the shallow seabed of Mahé like black shadows, while giant tortoises populate the Aldabra Atoll. On La Digue, wind-swept, leaning palm trees grow between the bizarre rocks, and one dream beach follows another. The Seychelles archipelago, comprising 115 islands, is located far out in the Indian Ocean. Many islands are so small that they only accommodate a few bungalows. And so, all the comfort includes the luxury of solitude. A genuine Robinson Crusoe feeling under a starry night sky. 43

The Switzerland Book Switzerland – small and comprehensible on a globe – plays a major role among European travel destinations, mainly thanks to the overwhelming dimensions of its mountains.

But Switzerland is much more than green pastures and eternal ice, magnificent peaks and sunny valleys. From Lake Geneva to Lake Constance, urbanized Central Switzerland attracts visitors with its lively cities, such as Zurich and Bern.

The water sparkles in an azure blue, the sand is snow white, the bougainvillaeas blossom in red and pink. The air is perfumed with the scent of nutmeg, reggae can be heard in the distance and ice cubes clink in the glass of rum – there are plenty of clichés about the Caribbean. Yet the islands have so much more to offer than endless sunshine. While the jungle is rampant on Dominica, life bustles in the colourful streets of Havana on Cuba. On Virgin Gorda you’ll swim between smooth granite blocks and in the Cayman Islands between manta rays.

Into the Wild – National Parks in Canada and the Unites States A painter is credited with the idea of creating a national park: As early as 1832, George Catlin proposed the preservation of the Great Plains in the west of the country, as a »magnificent park« for people and animals »in their pristine beauty and wildness«. With the support of other artists, philosophers and nature lovers, the idea of protection gained currency and led to the establishment of the Yellowstone National Park in 1872. There followed almost 100 such parks in Canada and the United States until today, all aiming to grant an undisturbed space to the beauty of nature.
