Burj Khalifa, o prédio mais alto do mundo/Burj Khalifa – höchstes Gebäude der Welt/Burj Khalifa – tallest building in the world

Dubai é uma das mais importantes cidades da Ásia.

É famosa pelos belos edifícios com projetos arrojados, obras-primas da arquitetura moderna. Entre esses prédios, encontra-se o Burj Khalifa,

projeto de arquitetura do americano Adrian D. Smith e Gordon Gill Architecture, considerado atualmente como o prédio mais alto do mundo, com 828 metros de altura (o mesmo arquiteto projetou outro edifício na Arábia Saudita – a Torre de Gidá- Jeddah Tower com 1000 metros de altura, cuja conclusão da obra está prevista para 2020).

O Burj Khalifa tem 160 andares e é possível visitar os andares 148, 125 e 124.

Do alto você tem uma visão de 360º da cidade.

Recomendo que você compre o ticket online aqui. Quando visitamos esse edifício vi que existia uma longa fila para comprar os ingressos.

Como adquirimos online, enfrentamos uma fila pequena, tinha apenas cinco pessoas na nossa frente. O acesso ao topo do Burj Kalifa é feito através do shopping Dubai Mall, andar “G”.

No caminho para o elevador você vai percorrer um longo corredor onde é possível apreciar a exposição sobre a história da construção do prédio, que começou em 2004 e se estendeu até 2009.

No final da visita, já no nível G, você atravessa uma lojinha de souvenires

e há também uma apresentação digital sobre curiosidades do prédio: como são lavadas as 25.000 janelas do edifício, como funciona o sistema de ar refrigeração do prédio, como é feita a iluminação externa do Burj Khalifa.

Para quem aprecia obras de engenharia e quer ver Dubai do alto, vale a pena realizar essa visita.

O Burj Khalifa é o prédio mais alto do mundo nesse momento. Existem outros edifícios localizados em diferentes lugares no planeta que são muito altos. Veja abaixo outros prédios que exemplificam o poder da engenharia nos tempos atuais:

Burj Khalifa – höchstes Gebäude der Welt

Dubai ist eine der wichtigsten Städte in Asien.

Es ist berühmt für die schönen Gebäude mit kühnen Designs, Meisterwerke der modernen Architektur.

Unter diesen Gebäuden befindet sich Burj Khalifa,

ein Architekturprojekt des Amerikaners Adrian D. Smith und Gordon Gill Architecture, das heute als das höchste Gebäude der Welt gilt und 828 Meter hoch ist (derselbe Architekt entwarf ein weiteres Gebäude in Saudi – Arabien – den Tower of Gidá-Jeddah-Turm mit einer Höhe von 1000 Metern, der voraussichtlich bis 2020 fertiggestellt sein wird).

Fonte/Source/Quelle: https://www.businessinsider.com/jeddah-tower-worlds-tall-skyscraper-2018-2

Der Burj Khalifa hat 160 Stockwerke und Sie können die Etagen 148, 125 und 124 besuchen.

Von oben haben Sie einen 360-Grad-Blick über die Stadt.

Ich empfehle Ihnen, das Ticket schon online zu kaufen. Als wir dieses Gebäude besuchten, sah ich, dass es eine lange Schlange gab, um Tickets zu kaufen.

Da wir online gebucht waren, standen wir in einer kleinen Schlange, nur fünf Leute standen vor uns.

Der Zugang zur Spitze des Burj Kalifa erfolgt über die Dubai Mall, „G“ Etage.

Auf dem Weg zum Aufzug durchqueren Sie einen langen Korridor, in dem Sie die Ausstellung über die Baugeschichte des Gebäudes sehen können, die 2004 begann und bis 2009 dauerte.

Am Ende des Besuchs, auf Ebene G, durchlaufen Sie einen Souvenirshop

und es gibt auch eine digitale Präsentation über die Besonderheiten des Gebäudes: Wie werden die 25.000 Fenster des Gebäudes gereinigt, wie funktioniert die Luftkühlung des Gebäudes, wie funktioniert die Burj Khalifas Außenbeleuchtung, wie die Aufzüge usw. usw.

Für diejenigen, die einzigartige Werke der Ingenieurskunst   hochschätzen und jedenfalls auch Dubai von oben sehen möchten, lohnt sich dieser Besuch sehr.

Falls Sie mehr über dieses technische Meisterwerk erfahren möchten, klicken Sie hier.

Burj Khalifa ist zu aktuell das höchste Gebäude der Welt. Es gibt andere Gebäude an verschiedenen Orten auf dem Planeten, die sehr hoch sind. Nachfolgend sind weitere Gebäude aufgeführt, die die heutige Leistungsfähigkeit von Technik & Ingenieurskunst veranschaulichen:

Burj Khalifa – tallest building in the world

Dubai is one of the most important cities in Asia.

 

It is famous for the beautiful buildings with bold designs, masterpieces of modern architecture.

Among these buildings is Burj Khalifa,

an architectural project by the American Adrian D. Smith and Gordon Gill Architecture , considered to be the tallest building in the world and 828 meters high (the same architect designed another building in Saudi Arabia – the Tower of Gidá-Jeddah). The tower with a height of 1000 meters is expected to be completed by 2020).

Fonte/Source/Quelle: https://www.businessinsider.com/jeddah-tower-worlds-tall-skyscraper-2018-2

The Burj Khalifa has 160 floors and you can visit the floors 148, 125 and 124.

From the top you have a 360 degree view over the city.

I recommend you to buy the ticket online. When we visited this building, I saw that there was a long line to buy tickets.

Since we were booked online, we were in a small queue, only five people stood in front of us.

Access to the top of the Burj Kalifa is via the Dubai Mall, “G” floor.

On the way to the elevator you will pass through a long corridor where you can see the exhibition about the building history, which started in 2004 and lasted until 2009.

At the end of the visit on level G, you will go through a souvenir shop

and there will be also a digital presentation about the specific features of the building: how will the 25,000 windows of the building be cleaned, how does the air cooling of the building work, how does the Burj Khalifas outdoor lighting work, how the elevators, etc. etc.

For those who cherish  works of engineering and in any case want to see Dubai from above, this visit is very worthwhile.

10 MELHORES CIDADES NO MUNDO PARA SE VIVER/10 LEBENSWERTE STÄDTE Dieser WELT/10 LIVEABLE CITIES OF THIS WORLD

Marcia e eu gostamos muito de visitar Viena sempre quando viajamos pela Europa, no inverno e no verão.

Vale sempre a pena visitar Viena e sabe o porquê? Por que é considerada a melhor cidade do mundo para se  viver.

Repetidamente, Viena recebe prêmios por qualidade de vida e ou critérios semelhantes que afetam a vida atual nas grandes cidades.

É de autoria do Economist Intelligence Unit,  um departamento de analises e estudos do grupo Economist que publica a revista de mesmo nome, a lista  das cidades mais habitáveis do mundo em 2018 e  Viena está no topo não é  uma surpresa para nós.

A lista anual baseia-se na análise de 5 categorias principais, tais como

Estabilidade

Cuidados de saúde

Cultura e meio ambiente

Educação

Infraestrutura

com 30 fatores qualitativos e quantitativos comparando 140 cidades em todo o mundo.

Assim, os locais com as melhores e piores condições de vida são pesquisados.

Seguindo estes critérios, aqui estão os resultados do ranking 2018

  1. Viena (Áustria)

As capitais mais perigosas do mundo, como Bagdá e Cabul, nem aparecem na lista, certamente não.

Em geral, pode-se dizer que cidades de tamanho médio em países ricos têm um desempenho melhor do que as grandes.

As grandes cidades geralmente têm uma maior taxa de criminalidade e problemas de infraestrutura. (por exemplo, Londres em 48º lugar)

Viena conseguiu o salto para o número 1 por causa da baixa taxa de criminalidade, das muitas áreas verdes e do bom transporte público.

10 LEBENSWERTE STÄDTE DIESER WELT

Marcia und ich lieben es, immer wenn wir in Europa umherreisen, Wien zu besuchen und dies sowohl im Sommer als auch im Winter.

Wien ist immer einen Besuch wert und warum, sie gehört zu einer der „lebenswertesten“ Städte dieser Welt.

 

 Immer wieder erhält Wien Auszeichnungen für Lebensqualität oder ähnlichen Kriterien das Leben heutzutage betreffend in groβen Städten.

Dieses Mal zeigt uns die nachfolgende Liste des Nachrichtenmagazins The Economistdie Rangliste der lebenswertesten Städte der Welt 2018 an und dass Wien hier mit an der Spitze ist überrascht uns beide keineswegs.

Die alljährlich erscheinende Liste basiert auf der Analyse von 5 Hauptkategorien wie

Infrastruktur
Bildung
Gesundheitsversorgung
Stabilität
Kultur

mit 30 komparativen qualitativen und quantitativen Faktoren und vergleicht weltweit 140 Städte.

Es werden also die Orte mit den besten und schlechtesten Lebensbedingungen gesucht.

Diesen Kriterien folgend hier nun die Ergebnisse der Rangliste 2018

Am Ende der Liste finden wir Damaskus (Syrien), Dhaka (Bangladesch), Lagos (Nigeria), Karachi (Pakistan) und Port Moresby (Papua-Neuguinea).

Mit die weltweit gefährlichsten Hauptstädte wie Bagdad und Kabul erscheinen in der Liste schon gar nicht.

Allgemein kann man festhalten, dass normalerweise mittelgroβe Städte in reichen Ländern immer besser abschneiden.

Groβe Städte weisen meist eine höhere Kriminalitätsrate auf und Probleme bezüglich Infrastruktur. (z.B. London   auf Platz 48)

Wien schaffte den Sprung auf Platz 1 wegen der geringen Kriminalitätsrate, den vielen Grünflächen und dem guten öffentlichen Nahverkehr.

10 LIVEABLE CITIES OF THIS WORLD

Marcia and I love to visit Vienna whenever we travel around Europe, both in summer and in winter.

Vienna is always worth a visit and why, it is one of the “most liveable” cities in the world.

Again and again Vienna receives awards for quality of life or similar criteria affecting today’s life in large cities.

This time the following list in the news magazine “The Economist” shows us the ranking of the most liveable cities in the world in 2018 and that Vienna is at the top  is not at all a suprise for us.

https://www.google.com.br/search?q=the+economist+2018&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwi1o7eyiPTcAhUFjpAKHfCpDSsQsAR6BAgEEAE&biw=1366&bih=582#imgrc=Zk7h__BBSlU8pM:

The annual list is based on the analysis of 5 main categories such as

Stability

Healthcare

culture and environment

education

infrastructure

with 30 comparative qualitative and quantitative factors comparing 140 cities worldwide.

So the places with the best and worst living conditions are searched.

Following these criteria here are the results of the rankings 2018

At the bottom of the list we find Damascus (Syria), Dhaka (Bangladesh), Lagos (Nigeria), Karachi (Pakistan) and Port Moresby (Papua New Guinea).

The world’s most dangerous capitals like Baghdad and Kabul not even appear in the list certainly not.

In general one can say that typically medium-sized cities in rich countries are performing better than big ones.

Big cities usually have a higher crime rate and infrastructure issues. (for example, London in 48th place)

Vienna managed the leap to No. 1 because of the low crime rate, the many green areas and good public transport.

Toronto, cidade cultural/ Kulturstadt Toronto/City of Culture Toronto

Toronto, cidade cultural

Toronto é a capital da província de Ontário e é também a maior cidade do Canadá, com quase 3 milhões de habitantes.

Toronto é uma cidade vibrante, dinâmica, palco de diversos eventos, além de oferecer muitas opções de divertimento. Aliás, o Canadá completa 150 anos em 2017 e por isso, o país, e em especial Toronto, tem uma vasta programação para celebrar a data.

Erich e eu estivemos em Toronto no mês de julho quando as pessoas aproveitam o máximo o céu azul e as altas temperaturas, pois no inverno elas são muitas baixas, podendo chegar a -30 graus centígrados.

Na tarde em que chegamos a Toronto, depois que deixamos nossa bagagem no hotel, nos dirigimos para a área chamada “Waterfront” localizada nas margens do Lago Ontário com diversos restaurantes, feirinha de artesanato, local onde a pessoa tem acesso aos barcos que fazem passeios no lago.

Por falar em passeio no lago, fiz e gostei muito. Durante o passeio, foi possível observar os arranha-céus da cidade, além de apreciar as muitas ilhas cobertas de vegetação, bela paisagem.

Esse passeio estava incluído no ticket que compramos para fazer o passeio de ônibus “hop on hop off”. Sempre gostamos de fazer esse tipo de city tour porque podemos ter uma visão geral da cidade e de seus principais atrativos, além de ter uma orientação geral do lugar.

Toronto tem atrativos para todos os gostos: para os  que gostam de adrenalina, os que se interessam por cultura, arquitetura, belezas naturais, dentre outras opções. Um programa famoso é visitar a CN Tower e caminhar no topo (Edge Walk), do lado de fora da torre, preso por cabos de aço, literalmente pendurado sobre a cidade. Tive muita vontade de fazer esse programa, mas, infelizmente não tive tempo.

Toronto tem muitos prédios com arquitetura arrojada e criativa, dentre eles, gostei muito do Real Museu de Ontário e da Galeria de Arte de Ontário. A cidade tem outros museus.

Um lugar interessante, que vale a visita é o Distillery Historic Distrit. Trata-se da maior área preservada de arquitetura industrial vitoriana da América do Norte. A área foi restaurada e revitalizada e hoje funcionam lojas, restaurantes e galerias de arte.

Você pode fazer programas de um dia fora da cidade. O mais famoso é visitar as cataratas chamadas Niagara Falls.

Enfim, Toronto é uma cidade com muitos atrativos, eventos, além de ser multicultural.

Você encontra bairros chamados Chinatown, Little Portugal, Little Korea. Se você planeja uma viagem ao Canadá, vale a pena incluir Toronto no seu roteiro e pesquise sobre a programação cultural. Se quiser conhecer somente a cidade, recomendo duas noites.

  Kulturstadt Toronto

Toronto ist die Hauptstadt der Provinz Ontario und auch zugleich die größte Stadt in Kanada mit fast 3 Millionen Einwohnern.

Toronto ist eine lebendige, dynamische Stadt mit vielen Veranstaltungen und Unterhaltungsmöglichkeiten.  In der Tat feiert Kanada 2017 seinen 150. Geburtstag und so versteht es sich, daβ das ganze Land und somit auch Toronto dies entsprechend feiert.

Erich und ich waren im Juli in Toronto, wenn die Leute das Beste aus dem blauen Himmel und den relativ hohen Temperaturen machen, denn im Winter kann es sehr kalt werden mit Temperaturen bis zu -30 Grad Celsius.

Am Nachmittag nach unserer Ankunft fuhren wir zur Strandpromenade “Waterfront” am Ufer des Sees Ontario mit vielen Restaurants, Märkten und überall sehr vielen Spaziergängern, die wie wir diesen sonnigen Sommertag am Wochenende genossen.

Wir unternahmen einen etwa einstündigen Bootsausflug auf dem See in die der Stadt vorgelagerte kleine Inselwelt mit schöner Landschaft

Ilha no Lago Ontário/Island on Lake Ontario/Insel im See Ontario

und tollem Blick auf die Wolkenkratzer der Stadt. Diese Tour ist Bestandteil des “Hop on Hop off” Bus-Tickets. Wir machen diese Art von Stadtrundfahrt immer deshalb gerne, weil wir somit eine erste Orientierung und einen guten Überblick über die Stadt und ihre Hauptattraktionen bekommen können.

Toronto bietet Attraktionen für jeden Geschmack: für diejenigen, die Adrenalin mögen und für diejenigen, die sich für Kultur, Architektur, Natur und vieles mehr interessieren. Ein berühmtes Programm ist es, den CN-Turm zu besuchen und den „Edge Walk“ auf der Oberseite zu gehen, quasi zu hängen, wahrlich eine Mutprobe in mehr als 350 Metern Höhe. Ich wollte dieses wirklich machen, aber leider hatte ich nicht die Zeit hierfür, da am Wochenende oft ausgebucht.

Toronto verfügt über viele Gebäude mit kühner und kreativer Architektur, unter ihnen genoss ich das Royal Ontario Museum und die Ontario Art Gallery. Die Stadt offeriert viele weitere Museen.

Ein interessanter Ort, der einen Besuch lohnt, ist der „Distillery Historic District“. Es ist das größte erhaltene Gebiet der viktorianischen Industriearchitektur in Nordamerika. Das Viertel wurde restauriert und revitalisiert und heute findet man viele Geschäfte, Restaurants und Kunstgalerien.

Jedenfalls ist Toronto eine Stadt mit vielen Attraktionen, Veranstaltungen, einfach multikulturell. Sie finden Nachbarschaften namens Chinatown, Little Portugal, Little Korea. Falls Sie eine Reise nach Kanada planen, lohnt es sich, Toronto und sein Kulturprogramm miteinzubeziehen, falls Sie nur die Stadt kennenlernen möchten, empfehle ich einen Aufenthalt von zwei Nächten1.

City of Culture Toronto

Toronto is the capital of the province of Ontario and also the largest city in Canada with nearly 3 million inhabitants.

Toronto is a vibrant, dynamic city with many events and entertainment venues. In fact, Canada is celebrating its 150th birthday in 2017, so it is clear that the whole country, and thus Toronto, is celebrating it accordingly.

Erich and I were in Toronto in July when people do the best of the blue sky and the relatively high temperatures, because in winter it can get very cold with temperatures down to -30 degrees Celsius.

In the afternoon after our arrival we drove to the beachfront “Waterfront” on the shores of Lake Ontario with lots of restaurants, markets and everywhere a lot of walkers who like us enjoyed this sunny summer day at the weekend.

We undertook an approximately one-hour boat trip on the lake into the small island world with a beautiful landscape and a great view of the skyscrapers of the city.

Ilha no Lago Ontário/Island on Lake Ontario/Insel im See Ontario

This tour is part of the “Hop on Hop off” bus-ticket. We always enjoy this type of city tour because we can get an initial orientation and a good overview of the city and its main attractions.

Toronto offers attractions for all tastes: for those who like adrenaline and those who are interested in culture, architecture, nature and much more. A famous program is to visit the CN tower and to do up there the “Edge Walk” on the top, almost hanging out, really a courage test at more than 350 meters high. I wanted to make this really, but unfortunately I did not have the time to do this, as on weekends very often sold out.

Toronto has many buildings with bold and creative architecture, among which I enjoyed the Royal Ontario Museum and the Ontario Art Gallery. The city offers many other museums.

An interesting place to visit is the Distillery Historic District. It is the largest preserved area of the Victorian industrial architecture in North America. The neighborhood has been restored and revitalized and today you can find many shops, restaurants and art galleries.

In any case, Toronto is a city with many attractions, events, it is simply multicultural. You will find neighborhoods called Chinatown, Little Portugal, Little Korea. If you are planning a trip to Canada it is worth to include Toronto and its cultural program, if you only want to get to know the city, I recommend a stay of two nights.
