Flying over to Germany for a day trip can be hard work. For sure it will always be a long day with a very early alarm. But it doesn’t always mean you get to see much beside airports and meeting rooms. So, the day trip to Weil am Rhein this week was a pleasant change. Yes, the meeting we had lasted most of the day. But in between wrapping up the meeting and heading back to the airport, we had an hour spare and where offered a quick tour around the Vitra Campus. So, let me tell you what to see and do at the Vitra Campus, even if you only have limited time.
Ever so often you find yourself in the right place at the right time.
Such as last January. We had a 2 day trip to the vicinity of Hamburg and decided to take the opportunity to see the newly opened Elbphilharmonie, which after years of delay finally opened three weeks prior.
So we booked ourselves into a hotel near the harbour, at the top end of the Reeperbahn. Within walking distance so to say.
The original plan was to walk along the harbour to the Elbphilharmonie, have a look around, see if we could get tickets for the viewing gallery and go for dinner afterwards. But what are plans, if not to change?
