We love city trips. We guess, you love them too. That's exactly why we want to share our all-time favorite city trips across the world with you today.
Chicago has been considered a typical "Midwestern” city for a long time. But the home of blues and jazz is also a cosmopolitan city with a mix of cultures. The skyline is a sample book of architectural history. Chicago is home to some of the best restaurants in the world and with the "Mag Mile" heaven for shopping fans. Have you ever tried a Chicago-style pizza? The bottom of the pizza forms a tray with a high rim, which is then filled with cheese, tomatoes, and sausage. Yummy! After a visit to the Field Museum and the Museum of Science and Industry, you can relax in Millennium Park. From there it is only a short walk to ACME Hotel Chicago, downtown Chicago's lifestyle boutique hotel. This hotel has an eye for design and a high-tech vibe.
New York City
Well, there is no list of the best city trip destinations which does not mention the Big Apple. New York City is a cosmopolitan city, a trendsetter and a melting pot of nationalities. Visitors are attracted by famous museums such as the Guggenheim or the Metropolitan Museum of Art, sights such as the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building, but you can also spend time outside in the many parks and recreation areas. An abundance of speakeasy bars, restaurants, clubs and discos, Broadway and off-Broadway shows, cinemas and concert halls offer varied evening entertainment. In addition to Manhattan, hip Brooklyn is also worth a visit; Staten Island and Long Island invite you on an excursion.

The view from its 21st-floor rooftop restaurant is amazing. Here you can enjoy some Italian-American cuisine and take in all the views.
The maritime flair of Copenhagen has been preserved to this day. Small water taxis crisscross the inner-city Harbour and the many small canals. Hordes of environmentally friendly cyclists rush through the city on the extra-wide cycle paths. Unique museums, royal palaces, and sandy city beaches also contribute to the city's fascination. Tivoli Hotel is located on the edge of Copenhagen's famous Tivoli Gardens. As temperatures can vary considerably during the year, the hotel offers a gym, a swimming pool, and indoor and outdoor playgrounds, so both adults and children have plenty to do during their stay.
