Hardly any other metropolis in the world is as charming and varied as the British capital, which is worth a visit at any time of the year.
Art and culture around the clock, superlative shopping, royal flair and trendy neighborhoods, fish'n chips and afternoon tea: London is simply unique.
For every taste and every budget, whether a short trip or perhaps a language study trip, a family trip or a girls' weekend - everything is possible.
Modern cosmopolitan city and monarchy - a contradiction? Not in the city on the River Thames! Royal London blends inseparably and seamlessly into the cityscape alongside futuristic architecture. Following in the footsteps of the Royal Family, there is something to discover at every turn. The changing of the guard in front of Buckingham Palace or the Horse Guards Parade are always fascinating. The Tower of London bears witness to England's exciting history as a royal palace, prison, place of execution, armory and repository of the crown jewels. The venerable Westminster Abbey is a kaleidoscope of British history and a must for every visitor: kings and queens, statesmen and soldiers, poets, heroes and villains have come and gone here and found their final resting place in the abbey.
St. Paul's Cathedral, Tower Bridge and the Houses of Parliament with Big Ben are also part of a visit to London.

Shopping und Genuss
The culinary offerings in London are as diverse as the sights. In addition to traditional cuisine such as fish and chips or the legendary afternoon tea, you are spoiled for choice between restaurants with specialties from all over the world: authentic curry in Brick Lane, dim sum in Chinatown, street food at Borough Market, spicy delicacies in the Caribbean restaurants in Brixton or "Little Korea" in New Malden in the southwest of the city.
Well fortified, nothing stands in the way of a shopping spree. On one side of the spectrum you will find Harrods, probably the most famous department store in the world; visitors can immerse themselves in a completely different world in London's various markets, such as Portobello Road Market, Camden Market, Brick Lane Market or Covent Garden, to name but a few.
