Travel Tips to Baltimore (BWI)
Baltimore – a city full of history and attractions
In the 17th century, Baltimore was just a small trading post. Now the flourishing city is the biggest in Maryland. It has one of the most important ocean ports in the United States of America. The famous writer Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) spent his twilight years in beautiful Baltimore. At the end of the 60s, the American metropolis was among the first in the country to replace lots of factories with attractive new buildings. A flight to Baltimore offers numerous interesting sights, most of which are in the city centre so they are easily reachable on foot. In the harbour area, it is easy to get from one place to another by water taxi.
National Aquarium: Sea creatures to watch and stroke!
Young and old alike will enjoy a trip to the Baltimore National Aquarium. A highlight of this is a giant tank several storeys high. Rays, sea turtles and blacktip sharks are examples of what you can see close up around the magnificent tropical reef. Children love the petting tank where horseshoe crabs and many other sea creatures can be handled safely. While you are watching the countless colourful fish, rare sea snakes and interesting shellfish, a suitable atmosphere is created with soothing sea sounds over loudspeakers. A little tip: near the aquarium there is a car park which offers cheap parking to aquarium visitors.
Fort McHenry: Interesting insider knowledge from park rangers
Dive deep into the history of America in Fort McHenry. It is located in an idyllic position on a tongue of land in Chesapeake Bay. Discover lots of detail about the meaning of the national anthem and flag to US citizens. Not much of the original installation is left, although the fort provides a great view across the nearby bay. A number of park rangers are always on hand for your questions, and also offer individual guided tours. They have impressive, engaging insider knowledge which will enrich your visit to the fort in a lively and entertaining way.
American Visionary Art Museum: Rare artworks
