Chicago: Good to know

Must-Sees in Chicago

Willis Tower

With its 442 meters, the Willis Tower is the second highest building in the United States. The Skydeck, 413 meters above street level, offers breath-taking views of Chicago and Lake Michigan. A nice extra, The Ledge, 4 balconies with glass walls that are mounted on the outside of the building ensure that you will not ever forget your visit to the Willis Tower. Check it out!.


John Hannock Center

Not the tallest building in Chicago, but possibly the one with the best views. From the observation deck (94st floor) you can see the beaches of Chicago to the north, the beautiful Lake Michigan to the east and the city's beautiful skyline including the Willis Tower to the west..


Chicago Loop

The Loop is the downtown heart of the City. Here you will find the highest and most beautiful buildings, some positioned spectacularly along the banks of the Michigan river and its original bridges. Bars and restaurants flourish here. Be sure to visit the Millennium Park or why not attend a musical in the theatre district.


Chicago River

The Chicago River flows away from lake Michigan through the city and into the Mississippi. 45 bridges span the river, the best known of which is the bridge on the Michigan Avenue that was built in 1920. The banks are equipped with hiking and biking trail , but a relaxing ride on the river and lake will provide you with narration about some of the city’s stunning features.


Navy Pier

If you have booked a day or night cruise on the Chicago River, then head to the Navy Pier to embark on your journey. This one kilometre long pier with restaurants, bars, a 15-story ferris wheel – modelled after the original one, the very first ever - and playgrounds is the ideal place to escape from the hustle and bustle of downtown Chicago.

The entire institute takes up nearly one million square feet and is home to almost 300,000 permanent works of art. The collection spans the globe from Chinese bronzes and installation art to textiles, well-known painters as Van Gogh, Monet, Renoir…
