Travelling in the Arctic is still an adventure. Journeys will take you into an icy, almost deserted and yet fascinatingly beautiful world. Over the summer, vast areas are bathed in the warm light of the midnight sun for almost 24 hours a day; at the North Pole, the sun does not disappear beyond the horizon for half a year. In the polar regions, like Greenland and Spitsbergen, icebergs and rugged fjords, boat trips, sailing tours or hikes in untouched nature and dog sleigh rides in winter inspire everyone who makes the trip.

The iridescent play of light through Gothic tracery windows. Skyscrapers gleaming in chrome. The stirring simplicity of a Cistercian abbey. The worn steps of a Mayan pyramid. Church vaults reaching for the sky. Indian temples rich in detailed reliefs. Buildings move us, protect us, and give us places for prayer and devotion, for political debate and for artistic expression. Over the course of the millennia, humankind has created lasting architectural masterpieces, stone witnesses of epochs and rulers, of times and mores.

The sun sets in reddish hues above the endless sea of sand in the Wadi Rum of Jordan, bathing the landscape in a warm light. The dream beaches on Thailand‘s coasts gleam golden, while the white fl ank of Mount Everest brightly refl ects its light into the shady valleys of the Himalayas. The macaques in Japan’s hot springs wrinkle their dark red noses, and in the dense jungles of Indonesia you can discover an unimaginable number of shades of green. Asia, the largest continent in the world with the most varied types of vegetation is immensely colourful.

An inspiring and fascinating journey to the last paradises on earth: waterfalls that rush 1,000 feet into the depths with a thunderous roar; gorges that have dug themselves along hundreds of miles like Titanic wounds; volcanoes that turn the earth inside out like the maws of hell; South Sea islands with coral reefs that come so close to our idea of paradise that there doesn’t seem to be a need to want to go to heaven any longer. Earth is a “work of art” in the vastness of the solar system.

Switzerland – small and comprehensible on a globe – plays a major role among European travel destinations, mainly thanks to the overwhelming dimensions of its mountains. About two-thirds of the country’s surface area is occupied by the Alps, which are divided into the Northern and Southern Alps by the upper reaches of the Rhine and Rhône rivers. 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 rural idyll of the Dordogne and the South West, the Mediterranean flair of Provence, the turbulent bustle of Paris and the fresh wind sweeping the Atlantic coast – all seem to be worlds apart. And yet they are often only a day’s drive away. The stone witnesses of the past also take on manifold forms, ranging from the Roman amphitheatre in Orange and Medieval abbeys such as Fontenay and Sénanque to the fortifications of Carcassonne as well as romantic palaces like the Château de Chenonceau. If you look for it, you will find the happiness of travelling in every corner of France.

The small country in the heart of Europe boasts an exciting diversity of landscapes and cultures. The palette ranges from the Danube Floodplains and the vineyards of the Wachau region to the glacial summits of the Upper Tauern range, from the sunny bathing lakes of Carinthia to the silent forests of Styria. Its impressive treasures bear witness to Austria’s glorious past: baroque monasteries, medieval castles and lively city centres such as Linz, Graz and Innsbruck are but some of its many showpieces. Not to be forgotten are Mozart’s Salzburg and the venerable capital, Vienna.


The Sweden Book They were the heroes of their childhood for many: Pippi Longstocking and Nils Holgersson. At home in Sweden, their adventures have shaped entire generations. The image of pristine nature is an integral part of it: lonely forests, boat trips on rivers and lakes, and expansive flower meadows. Sweden has lost none of its olde worlde charm, yet it is entirely modern. Pulsating cities with magnificent palaces show how Today and Yesterday can happily coexist.

The Baltic Sea Book If you know only one stretch of the Baltic coast, you certainly don’t know all of it. The inland sea has a relatively large number of bordering countries, including Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Russia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Germany. And accordingly it is marked by very diverse features. Yet there are also similarities between the different Baltic coasts: the Baltic Sea was a natural trade route for the Vikings, and again later for the medieval merchants of the Hanseatic League. Boundless riches of history and culture, all there to be discovered.

The Morocco Book The magic of Oriental medinas and palaces, the rugged beauty of the Atlas mountains, the whiteness of the seaports, the green palm oases in the Sahara, as well as the perfumes and colours of a Thousand and One Nights in the souks of the imperial cities – all conspire to make a journey to Morocco an adventure for the senses. Casablanca, Marrakech and Fez – the names alone promise oriental delights, and the fortified Berber villages in the hinterland seduce with their seemingly cubistic, nested houses.

The England Book Then as now, England is still an insider tip for many. Together with Wales, it makes up the lion’s share of Great Britain. Past and future have always lived side by side here. And so the country still holds firmly onto the monarchy. Nowhere else in Europe boasts quite as many mighty castles, grand houses, abbeys and cathedrals. The Beatles, the Rolling Stones and Shakespeare, Agatha Christie and Charles Dickens – English culture has long been a part of our world’s cultural heritage.

It cultivates its morbid charm of decay and at the same time adorns itself with futuristic architecture. Portugal’s little-known north promises bathing fun along the infinite sandy beaches of the Costa Verde. And in the Algarve in the south, Portugal boasts one of Europe’s most attractive coastlines. This photographic volume presents magical cities and landscapes where you can still sense the historic soul of the seafaring nation.

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.

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«.

There are few areas as evocative of Scotland as the sparsely settled highlands.

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.

Discover the Camino de Santiago Since the early Middle Ages, pilgrims have taken on great hardships to reach the holy sites of humankind. One such pilgrimage destination is Santiago de Compostela in Spain. Every year, thousands trek to the tomb of James the Great, to ask for forgiveness or simply to experience a time out from daily life.
