Um einen Citybadge freischalten zu können muss man einfach an fünf verschiedenen Orten einchecken die sich auf der City-Badge-List befindet. Die Listen wurden mit Hilfe der lokalen Foursquare Usern erstellt, da hat es also sicher den einen oder anderen Geheimtip dabei.

Motor City

Detroit, MI

Hangin’ in The D, huh? From technicolor airports to Model Ts and The Temptations, it’s a pretty swell city. Nom a coney dog with everything, then scream your head off at a Red Wings game — you’ll fit right in. 3/26/13

Bab el Bahr

Tunis, Tunisia

Travel through the sands of time to Carthage, or simply take a stroll along the gulf. Feast on tajin before visiting the Bardo, then swing through the Avenue Habib Bourguiba with its Parisian vibes. But don’t be fooled – you’re still in Tunis. Wallah! 11/28/12

Manado, Indonesia

Oslo, Norway

Look at all the coconut trees! Seems you’ve made it to Bumi Nyiur Melambai. So makang? Wander over to Kawasan Wisata Kuliner Tinutuan Wakeke (say that three times fast!) for some Bubur Manado. And once you’ve digested, get your cliff diving on. Dahsyat! 11/28/12

Kollen Roar

Oslo, Norway

Whether on bike, skis, or your very own kon-tiki, you’ve explored Oslo’s best! After a hike around the woods at Frognerseteren, meet up with friends at Løkka… or are you the Solli Plass type? Either way, hit up Kebab Street on your way home. Sykt fett! 11/16/12
Original Post
Bolognese

Bologna, Italy

You mastered the city of torri, portici, and tortellini! Meet your friends al Nettuno, zip over to Zanarini for un aperitivo, then to Trattoria da Vito for mortadella, or maybe some tagliatelle with ragù. After all, they don’t call it ‘la grassa’ for nothing… 9/6/12

Mateína

Montevideo, Uruguay

You’re a regular Montevideana! Take a walk on the Rambla, drink mate with bizcochos, then trek to the Ciudad Vieja to hear a tango or two. Hungry? Hit up the Mercado del Puerto for some asado before hopping from boliche to boliche. ¡Qué copado, che! 9/6/12

Garden City

Kumasi City, Ghana

In the heart of Ghana, you work all day and find yourself at Sweet Pub, sippin’ brews, by night. Dine at Abusua or Mckweon for top-notch eats – because when it comes to fufu, the Garden City knows what’s up. 8/15/12

Casablanca

Awwah! We’ll always have Casablanca. When the sun is shining, we’ll wander to Al Houbous, where vendors boast their brightly colored wares. After a stroll along the corniche, we’ll grab a drink, then catch a flick at Megarama! Moot. 8/1/12

Blue Danube

Vienna, Austria

You’re in the land of the Hapsburgs, home to ferris wheels and Freudian slips! When you’re not being classy at Castle Schönbrunn or the Philharmonic, you’re likely wolf(gang)ing down wiener schnitzel or dancing it up at U4 Diskothek. Oida. 7/3/12
Original Post
City of Laviolette

Trois Rivieres, Quebec

Where might one find a Grand Prix, poetry, and round-the-clock poutine? Only in Trois-Rivières, of course. Saunter along the Saint-Laurent at the Harbourfront, then make for La Rue des Forges with some friends. C’est malade! 6/28/12

City of Three Towers

Ghent, Belgium

How to be a Caraqueña: jog to Sabas Nieves to get your workout on, cancel out all that hard work with an arepa de cochino frito (or two), then rally the troops and head for El Teatro Bar for that good ol’ rock venezolano. ¡Finisimo! 6/1/12

Santiaguino a full

Santiago, Chile

City to the front, Andes to the back! When you’re not soaking up some culture at the GAM, you’re jogging around the Parque Metropolitano, taking in the sun. And when hunger strikes, it’s off to Paseo Ahumada to devour a completo. ¡Bacán! 5/17/12

City of Lakes

Minneapolis

You’re hip to the midwest max! Not rain, nor sleet, nor feet of snow can keep you from your bike, and you’d die before missing a First Ave show. So hit up a Twins game, swing by the Sculpture Garden, and tell us: what does the cherry in the spoon MEAN?! 4/25/12

Beantown

Boston

You’ve strolled along the Charles, belted “Sweet Caroline” with the best of them, hit every stop on the Freedom Trail and even taken an ironic Duck Tour or two. Paul Revere would be proud (Duck Tours aside). 3/19/12

Phanatic

Philadelphia

Ah, the city of brotherly love, where it’s always sunny and cheesesteaks abound! Be they Geno’s or Pat’s, Tony Luke’s or Dalessandro’s – as Ben Franklin would say, a penny saved is a hoagie earned. Or something like that… 3/19/12

Oklahoma City

OMG OKC! From Bricktown to Downtown, y’all better saddle up — it’s gonna be a zoo (and have you SEEN the zoo?!). With red dirt on the soles of your shoes and classic Shania on the radio, where else would you be (other than the heart of the heartland)? 3/2/12
Original Post
Stamford Savvy

Stamford, CT

If you seek a New England city with some spunk, look no further. From Old Town Hall to Curley’s Diner, you don’t have to be a Connecticutian to appreciate this charm. Though, you do have to like crossword puzzles (oh hey, Will Shortz)! 3/2/12

Charm City

Baltimore

Omar. McNulty. Stringer Bell. That girl in “Hairspray.” They all had one thing in common, and that’s you, Baltimore. So cheer on those Orioles, crack open a blue crab, and hon, don’t even think about skimping on the Old Bay. 3/2/12

French for ‚The Moines‘

Des Moines

State fairs and skywalks, prairie dogs n’ butter cows — yep, definitely in Des Moines. Slurp a malt from Snookies, then feast on a Zombie Burger before visiting the LHF (Living History Farms. Duh). And remember — if you check in, they will come. 3/2/12

Red Square

Moscow

Art thou a true Moskvitch? Da! From Tolstoy’s tomes to the busy shoppers on Tverskaya Street, your babushka’s matreshka dolls to the metro station mosaics, you know Moscow better than Pushkin and Chekhov combined. Buy yourself a blin (or five)! 2/20/12

Sydney

Hangin’ out down under, mate? How about a morning swim at Manly beach, a bit of Yum-Cha in Chinatown (or pie and peas at Wooloomooloo!), and a game of park cricket? Grab a stubby at the Argyle and it’s one cracking day out, you little beauty! 2/17/12

Madrileño

Madrid

Post siesta, you meet up with friends and sip a clara (o dos). Next thing you know, you’re wandering through Sol at five in the morning, feet aching, with a craving for churros con chocolate and no hope of catching el último Búho. ¡Mola mazo! 1/25/12
Original Post
Seattleite

Seattle

Kurt and Courtney. Tom and Meg. You’re in the city of sleepless nights and grunge glory days. Now down that frappuccino, find some flannel, and hang with the Fremont Troll until the rain passes – or the floating bridge floats away, whichever comes first. 1/18/12

Ich bin ein Berliner

Berlin

Look who’s in da Haus! You’ve left no stone in Grunewald unturned, no art gallery unseen, and there isn’t a currywurst in all of Berlin you haven’t sampled. Snap a picture in front of Brandenburger Tor then head to Berghain for that untz untz untz untz. 1/6/12

ATL

Atlanta

You get sick to your stomach when you hear the word ‘Hotlanta,’ your city is also a forest, and you drive the Perimeter daily. Whether you call 404, the 770 or the 678 your turf, it’s always the home of the Braves. Start poppin’ those (Coke) bottles! 12/22/11

Lion City

Singapore

You know Singapore from the top of the Sands Skypark to the beaches of Sentosa! When you’re not shopping up a storm on Orchard Road, you’re zipping over on the squeaky clean SMRT to sample some BBQ Sambal Stingray at Chomp Chomp. You’re so Tzai one. 12/22/11

The Big Easy

New Orleans

From po’boys on Bourbon Street to jazz at d.b.a., you’ve got N’awlins covered like steamboats on the Mississippi. We bet you live every day like Fat Tuesday. Or in the words of Weezy, you got cake every day like it’s yo birthday. Now go eat some pralines! 12/15/11

Sampa

São Paulo

You’ve got the looks of a real Paulistano! Que legal! The concrete jungle doesn’t intimidate you, nor do the crowds at the Praça da Liberdade. And just like this busy metropolis, you’re always setting the trends. Non dvcor, dvco! 12/15/11

La Ville-Lumière

Paris

You’ve picnicked avec un peu de vin by les quais de Seine, partied in République, missed le dernier métro, and taken un velib instead. From la Rive Gauche to la Rive Droite, you’ve seen it all (except Les Catacombes)! C’est un truc de ouf. 12/9/11
