Unless you’re a seasoned traveler or a world-class historian, the idea of circumnavigating the globe in just 80 days is probably impossible for you to imagine. However, it doesn’t mean you can’t take a trip to see the iconic landmarks that make up this famous itinerary. These major sights serve as a significant part of each country’s heritage and are usually the reason why tourists choose to include them in their itinerary. They also boost tourism and contribute to local economies. As such, it is not surprising that these landmarks attract millions of visitors from all over the world. Some of them have even become international icons that symbolize the heritage and history of their country. Some of these places are even recognized as UNESCO World Heritage sites.

As such, many travelers look forward to experiencing these historic landmarks when they decide to embark on a round-the-world (RTW) ticket plan. Located in Berlin’s central district, this monumental square has been a popular tourist attraction for over 200 years. A major landmark for world travelers, this historical site is a must-see for all who visit Germany. Its opulent design and grand façade make it an unforgettable sight to behold. It is also considered to be one of the best examples of 19th century architecture in Europe. It is a must-see for any true culture buff and the perfect spot to capture breathtaking views of Berlin. The palace is a national treasure of Germany and serves as an important symbol for the city of Berlin. It is often referred to as the ‘Queen of the Orient’ due to its impressive sandstone and marble decorations, as well as its beautiful gardens.

This iconic landmark in the heart of the German capital was built on the order of the Prussian King Frederick William IV. The main façade of the building features a colossal group of lions and is considered to be one of the most beautiful monuments in the whole of Berlin. The lions are adorned with golden crowns and the entire structure is covered in greenery. A must-see for all art and culture lovers, this iconic landmark is a masterpiece of the Renaissance that is one of the most well-known and most important works of art in the world. The paintings at the Alte Nationalgalerie, which were once the property of the Russian Tsar and his family, are among the finest masterpieces in all of Europe. On October 2, 1872, English gentleman Phileas Fogg enters the Reform Club and gets involved in an argument over an article in The Daily Telegraph that claims that a new railway section in India has made it possible to travel around the world in just 80 days.

To prove that this is indeed possible, Fogg wagers PS20,000 (half of his fortune) with his fellow members at the club and departs from London that evening with his valet, Jean Passepartout, in pursuit of this seemingly impossible journey. In this thrilling adaptation of Jules Verne’s classic adventure novel, David Tennant (Doctor Who) stars as Phileas Fogg, literature’s greatest explorer. He is joined by Ibrahim Koma (OSS 117, Wulu) as Jean Passepartout, Fogg’s irrepressible valet, and Leonie Benesch (The Crown, Babylon Berlin) as Abigail “Fix” Fortescue, a headstrong journalist.
