Spring is almost here and the Discover Germany office cannot wait to spend the first warm Saturday out in the park with a picnic and one or two cold drinks. Another thing we really look forward to is to change our dark office clothes with light and stylish alternatives. Thus, we have picked some great office fashion from the Dach region’s best designers to brighten up your days at work while spring is blooming outside. Swimming in open air lakes might not be an option in April yet, but our writer Thomas Schroers already prepares us for one of the most loved things to do for Germans in summer. In this month’s feature he sheds some light on why Germans have loved and preserved their open air pools and swimming lakes for such a long time and he gives tips on which of these pools and lakes are particularly worth a visit. If we have to wait until we can finally plunge into outdoor pools, the current weather is certainly more suitable for a city trip. Thus, our Zurich city special is dedicated to showcase this exciting city’s best hotels, museums, galleries and much more. Furthermore, it shows that besides the bustling city centre of Zurich, the canton’s surrounding nature has much to offer too. For this month’s design guide we also found some original design items that are sure to transform any interior. Our cover star this month is nobody less than Anna Fenninger – Austria’s charming skiing hotshot. In our interview, she talks about her love for Austria, how her career started, why she is dedicated to saving cheetahs and what the horrible crash in 2015 meant for her and her career. The business section this month is filled with great coaches and technology experts, and lawyer Gregor Kleinknecht dedicates his column to an omnipresent topic – the Brexit. Last but not least, the exciting Hannover Messe is held this month so we thought it would be a great opportunity to introduce some of best innovation leaders that are present at this year’s fair. And now - enjoy the magazine!
