  • Supriya Sehgal 111 Places in Rajasthan That You Must Not Miss

    Englische Originalausgabe

    The forbidding landscape of insipid browns and impregnable fortresses is often the most prevalent image visitors take away from the desert state of Rajasthan. But while these breathtaking palaces are the enduring legacy of the Rajput royals, the real soul of Rajasthan is best glimpsed off the beaten path, where amusing stories, eccentric traditions, unusual encounters, and elusive relics await your discovery. 111 Places in Rajasthan leads you beyond the veil of famous legends, monuments, shopping destinations, and culinary pleasures, to the state’s most unexpected and often outlandish locales. Watch wild deer roam the homes of tribal groups; make an offering of whiskey at a motorcycle shrine; meet a tigon – a half lion, half tiger; or become the subject of a comedic roast by an expletive-ridden folk theatre troupe. Explore the hidden treasures of Jaipur, Jodhpur, and Udaipur, and experience what makes Rajasthan one of the most exotic and exciting regions in the world.

  • 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.
