Euromaxx Highlights

Lifestyle Europe

In this edition: the graffiti duo Herakut, verticle gardens in Paris, tailor-made tours, the image of German wine, and we visit the island of Ibiza.

The Image of German Wine
German wines are savored by connoisseurs, but not necessarily by the average German. We meet vintners who are determined to change that situation. Some of their work has already bore fruit, with red wines in particular becoming more and more successful.

We're on the Spanish island perhaps better known for its party life. However, there are many other things to see and do, such as visiting Ibiza Town’s historic center which is an official UNESCO World Heritage Site. Then there are the quiet villages like Santa Gertrudis de Fruitera. And there's the weekly hippie market "Las Dalias". The hippies were the first to develop that area back in the '60s.

Tailor-made Tours
Austrians Carina Schichl and Tanja Roos started their company Nectar & Pulse to offer an alternative to your regular travel guide. They produce specialized travel guides in major European cities that contain exclusive tips from what they call 'local soulmates'. Those are people who live there and recommend special places. We meet the entrepreneurs in Munich.

Planting Up
Frenchman Patrick Blanc makes good use of space. In Paris, he's come up with an innovative way to live in the heart of the city with plenty of greenery around him. Check out his verticle gardens.

Street Artists Herakut
One of their most famous projects is the Great Storybook Project, which aims to promote interest in children's books.
