Directly at the Hard Rock Cafe you can walk to the inviting street cafes and impressive squares of Antwerp city center. The Large Market with its imposing buildings, the town hall and the guild houses, also impresses with a decorative fountain, the Brabo fountain in honor of the folk hero Silvius Brabo. This is said to have done the same to a vicious giant who cut off the hands of merchants who were unwilling to pay on the way to Antwerp. Hence the giant hand that is flung away from the stature like a discus.

There are more animals in the large areas of the Namib than one would expect from the wide sandy desert. Swakopmund therefore also offers tours to the "Little Five", which include the Palmato Gecko, a spider "the white lady", a chameleon, the Sidewind Snake and a lizard species, which we have also observed on the dune 45 .


Avenues in infrared

The birch avenues in Hennef between the villages of Söven and Westerhausen and also the plane trees on the Rhine promenade in Mainz are magnificent to look at, regardless of the recording technology. Infrared imaging technology succeeds in placing it in a bizarre "light" - white leaves on birch trees? White leaves in summer? A cyclist in a shirt under a wintry canopy?
