Mr Schumann's Recommendations

FAVOURITE RESTAURANT AND DISH

Borchardt, Berlin. Go there in the winter and order goose with red cabbage and potato dumplings. For steak, go to Peter Luger in Brooklyn.”

note

VACATION CHOICE

“I try to go to places I have never been to. Since I am travelling mostly to cities for work, I try to get away from people when on vacation.”

TOP CITY

“I absolutely love Berlin. The city has pretty much everything to offer. But New York will always be special to me. Not many cities have such great energy; you feel you are in New York the moment you get out of your taxi.”

FAVOURITE HOTEL

Amandari in Ubud, Bali. Nothing but nature out of every window and a private infinity pool. The food and the service are excellent.”

“I have been looking for a nice bag for years, but can't find anything I really like. Currently I am using a Yamamoto tote.”
