London is calling!
London – the biggest city in Europe, capital of the United Kingdom and home of the British monarchy. London is a city of extremes and superlatives. For many (me included) it’s the most beautiful and coolest city on earth.
“Totally-London” was started in April 2016 because I can’t get enough of this place! I love writing about it, to share my knowledge and passion with others and I want to inspire you to visit London for yourself. Enjoy the atmosphere, the international vibes and the enormous offer of events, restaurants, museum and galleries. Get into the London mood!
London – City of superlatives
With nearly 9 million citizens London is by far the biggest city in Europe and it holds many records in its own walls:
- The City looks back to over 2000 years of history and parts of it are still visible today (parts of the city wall, a Roman amphitheatre, an ancient Mithras temple…)
- In January 1863 the first tube in the world opened in London
- The (still) highest building in Western Europe can be found here – The Shard
- Take a ride with the first inner-city cable car in Europe – the Emirates Air Line or
- Discover the tallest sculpture in the United Kingdom – the Acelor Mittal Orbit
Over 200 museums cover nearly every topic and interest and for those more interested in fashion – London is perfect for shopping, too. From High Fashion to Vintage, from malls to market, you will find a huge range here. Visit one of the many musicals, theatre performances and exhibitions and enjoy some nice food while in town. It doesn’t matter what your foodie heart is graving for – vegans, vegetarians, meat lovers – everyone will find the perfect place for a nice meal.

To me, Street Art is the expression of a city. Modern, direct, critical, colourful, fast moving. When I visit a place for the first time I always try to find the Street Art spots. In cities which I know well (London, Munich, Berlin) it's always fascinating to go back to known places and look...
