Travel Guide of Records

Let’s be honest: When someone asks you where the leaning tower in the world is, the first thing that comes to mind is Pisa. But they are wrong. The leanest tower in the world is located in Suurhusen in Lower Saxony. The famous Tuscan tower (3.97 degrees) cannot keep up with the angle of inclination of the church tower of 5.19 degrees.

The journalist Cornelia Lohs, who lives in Heidelberg , presents 100 outstanding places in Germany, Austria and Switzerland in her current book “Travel Guide of Records”. On the one hand, there are spectacular destinations such as Austria’s largest waterfall in the Hohe Tauern National Park, the Dachstein Sky Walk or the longest suspension rope bridge in Germany in Saxony-Anhalt .

But things are also a little quieter when you browse through Austria’s oldest bookstore in Salzburg at 420 years old or watch the latest blockbusters in the evening in Germany’s largest cinema with 1,250 seats.
