Mexico Citysurpisingly different
Mexico´s capital is incredibly rich in art, history and culture. The city is trendy and has more museums than any other city in the world. Another unexpected fact: there are gigantic green areas and the sidewalks are beautifully planted.
Favourite placesTrendy Roma Norte and Condesa
This district has it all: great cafés, bars and restaurants, boutiques, galleries, creative residents and a lot of green spaces. Be sure to walk along the streets of Jalapa, Avenida Alvaro Obregón and Colima. There are many European bakeries and delicious Mexican street food stalls.
This is a very bohemian district, a mix of the young rich, writers and nighthawks. Condesa is cool, green, quiet and full of fashion boutiques and cafés.
Museo SoumayaA Must-See
This museum is not only stunning in architecture, it also hosts a large private collection of over 66,000 pieces of art including several stand-out pieces from European old and modern masters.

Taxco and TepotzlánPueblos Magicós
It only takes one word to describe the landscape around the megacity: magical! Six of the many „Pueblos Magicós“ in the country are in direct vicinity.
Taxco – the white village. Taxco was once rich in silver mines. Today silver jewelry shops can be found at every corner of this little crooked mountain village. From Mexico City (Tasqueña) one way 2,5 hours.
Tepoztlán. Highlight: Climbing Tepozteco – exhausting upclimb of 1.5 hours (stairs) but the view on the valley is terrific. Try Mexican specialities at the Mercado Municipal. The bus from / to Mexico City (Tasqueña) only takes about 1 hour.
San Miguel de Allende
The lights, the colours of the facades and the many small narrow streets immediately fascinated me. San Miguel de Allende is the perfect place to relax while being in a city. The town is located 3.5 hours north of Mexico City.
