Baroque At Its Best

By | 19 Comments

After our stroll along the river, Lars and I visited the Carmelite Church of Györ. At the outside, you only see a yellow facade with little decoration. Once you enter inside, it’s a completely different matter… We first thought that there was a church service going on, because lots of people were praying and that we had to leave again.…

Gorgeous Györ

By | 10 Comments

Once we had left Berlin and Moritzburg, we spent the night in Prague. Unfortunately, our hotel was so far from the center, that we couldn’t visit it. We still had a lot of kilometers to cover for our next destination: a small village not far from Györ. Györ is one of the biggest towns of Hungary and is located in the…

The Yellow Castle

On our way to Prague, Lars and I saw the beautiful castle of Moritzburg. Moritzburg is a village, located to the northwest of Dresden. Its main attraction is its Baroque castle, which was built in the 16th century. It then served mainly as a hunting lodge and other buildings were added afterwards. It is located on an artificial island and…

When we came back to the hotel from the Wannsee, we passed a street called Stauffenbergstrasse. I wondered what the connection was between the man and the street… Back in the hotel, I googled the name of the street and found out that the Bendlerblock was located there. The day afterwards, Lars and I had a look. The Bendlerblock was…

At The Waterside

By | 4 Comments

Summer… One of the ingredients of a successful summer trip – at least for me – is being on a beach, preferably a sandy beach. I don’t have to be there 2 weeks in a row, a couple of days can be enough for me. It’s not about sunbathing nor obtaining the perfect tan. I simply love the feeling of…

The Lion and The Harbor

As the morning progressed, the weather got sunnier and especially warmer. So, we had the perfect excuse to go to the waterside! Lars and I went to the Wannsee. The Wannsee actually consists of 2 lakes, the Little Wannsee and the Greater Wannsee and is situated in the southwest of Berlin. It is a very popular local bathing area with…

The Palace of No Worries

By | 11 Comments

Normally, Lars and I don’t visit touristic places. First of all, there are lots of blogs and websites dedicated to these and second, we are more attracted to off the beaten track places. It’s the goal of our blog. But there are exceptions to this rule, simply because some of these spots are too beautiful. Sanssouci certainly belongs to this…
