"From my first year on VirtualTourist" Personal Page by Nemorino
The idea of the Tip of the Week is that you should first try to guess where the tip is from, and then click on the link to see if you were right. (Sorry, no prizes for this!)
My first Tip of the Week was the S-Printing Horse. Do you know where it is?
My second Tip of the Week was about an archaeological excavation site called the Theatrum Mogontiacensium. Do you know where it is?
My third Tip of the Week was about a famous opera house that is actually not an opera house at all any more, just a concert hall. Do you know where it is?
My fourth Tip of the Week was about a ship called the Astoria. Can you guess where it is?
My fifth Tip of the Week was about a big new building which is shaped like a wave -- which is also what it is called.
There is a piano store here, and of course offices and restaurants and cafés of the more modern variety and, and even an artificial bubbling brook that follows the wavy shape of the building. Do you know where it is?
My sixth Tip of the Week was about an opera house with a new upper foyer where you have a great view of the nearby cathedral. Do you know where it is?
My seventh Tip of the Week was about an opera house that was voted "Opera House of the Year" in 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2002. Despite its idyllic location in the Castle Park (Schlosspark), it is very near the city center and is only a five-minute walk from the central railway station. Do you know where it is?
My eighth Tip of the Week was about Europe's largest railroad station, which was originally built in 1888. It now has 24 tracks at ground level, plus four underground tracks numbered 101-104, plus four more subway tracks which don't have numbers as far as I know.
Train service continues uninterrupted despite a huge renovation project which is now in progress to re-build the high glass-and-metal roof of the station. This renovation project started in 2002 and is supposed to be finished in 2006 in time for the World Cup. Do you know where this station is?
