  • Kelsey Roslin, Nick Yeager 111 Places in Austin That You Must Not Miss

    Travel Guide

    Those who know Austin know it to be a magical place. Live music surges through the air and cleansing creek water flows through the hills. The motto, “Keep Austin Weird,” illustrates residents’ appreciation for small businesses and cooky, eccentric local characters. It’s never felt quite like the rest of Texas here. Still, there’s the same sense of intense pride for one’s place.
    The underbelly of Austin is just as full of strange delights as its surface is. Scandals and corruption reveal themselves in this political town. The legacies of one of the earliest serial killers and mass shootings linger ominously. Yet despite its dark secrets, little-known stories of progress and creativity abound too. Music venues and local pools have fought and continue to fight racism. There is a universal love for queso, a Tex-Mex delicacy, and Leslie, an iconic cross-dressing homeless activist who was said to personify the city’s motto—these stories bring people together, and now they’re yours to discover.

  • Carolin Huder, Lucia Jay von Seldeneck 111 Places in Berlin That You Shouldn’t Miss Travel Guide

    In Berlin, the city divided after World War II, everybody knows about the Brandenburg Gate, Hitler's bunker, Kennedy's speech, red and green beer, splendidly broad boulevards, and numerous lakes. But this metropolis, once again the capital of Germany, encompasses many clandestine niches characteristic of a heterogeneous city without a beginning and without an end between its famous backyards, nature parks, and bridges. It is often these miniscule witnesses that tell authentic history. Besides the larger attractions, this unusual guide presents Berlin's other side - such as a tower so ugly that no-one wants to open a restaurant in it; a library offering its books in the trunks of living trees; the monument for the inventor of the currywurst; a residential settlement in a former East German prison; the place where the Nazis concealed the so-called "degenerate art" which they had confiscated; the house where David Bowie lived; an automat out of which maggots can be pulled; a museum for things used for purposes for which they were not created; the reception camp for refugees from East Germany - and, in a completely unexpected spot, the most romantic place in Berlin.
