Staycation is the buzzword of the hour. Because weeks since mid-March 2020 have led to some changes. We're going on vacation back home.

Instead of Spain, you now drive to Lake Starnberg, to the Timmendorfer booth or to Usedom. Summer holidays 4.0 with every fresh air guarantee are offered by holiday homes, farms and chalet villages. And instead of the safari in South Africa, city trips are again very popular.

Staycation: The GREENstyle Guide recommendations for holidays at home

Vacation at the lake

Let’s be honest: the beaches of Usedom, Timmendorf or Sylt can easily keep up with holiday destinations in the south. Admittedly, it may not always be quite as warm as under the Spanish sun, but who has ever made a mudflat hike, let a “stiff breeze” blow around his nose or a wonderfully relaxed book (our tip: “The whale and the end of the world “by John Ironmonger) in the beach chair that comes again. And again. And again.

Summer retreat in the Alps

The vacation home winners of the Corona period? Decentralized locations with small residential units. Perfect choice? In the country or in the mountains. Traditional farms and remote chalet villages (e.g. Chalet Prechtlgut in Austria) with detached houses are booming right now. Social distancing can be so cozy. What would we pack?

Ab in die Stadt!

Potsdam, Prag oder doch nach Wien? Citytrips haben gerade Hochkonjunktur. Statt 14 Tage Strand machen wir jetzt City-Hopping und stellen fest, dass die Metropolen im eigenen Land so einiges zu bieten haben. Die Schirnkunsthalle in Frankfurt, die Thierry Mugler Ausstellung in der Münchner Kunsthalle oder auf den Spuren der barocken Baukunst in Dresden sind nur einige weniger Superlative, die wir unbedingt besucht haben sollten.
