Nicolas Rivals travels around the Spanish countryside erecting scarlet light installations made of neon tubes and photographing them in the dark. He calls his dramatic series “La Linea Roja” – the red line.
Even philistines are familiar with “The Kiss” or “The Thinker” – perhaps Auguste Rodin’s most famous sculptures. This year marks the centenary of his death, and the Grand Palais in Paris is staging an exhibition (March 22 to July 31) of Rodin (1840–1917) and other seminal artists of his day.
In Amsterdam, couples can add some excitement to their relationship thanks to Over the Edge, Europe’s highest (double) swing. From 100 meters up, you get a hefty adrenaline rush and a magnificent view over the Dutch capital.
A beach party in the mountains? That’s not everyone’s idea of après-ski. If you’re looking for a place to chill, enjoy some jazz or go all-out glamorous, check out these three locations.
Beach Mood at Altitude
If the après-ski music at the Kristalhütte in Zillertal sounds suspiciously like the legendary Café del Mar compilations, it’s because that‘s what is: DJs from the Balearic Islands often play here in the Austrian Alps. Equally fantastic: the view from nearly 2200 meters up.

But to make it past the bouncers at this exclusive nightspot in the elegant Badrutt’s Palace Hotel, they have to be dressed appropriately.
