Cochem In The Morning

By | 0 Comments

The morning afterwards, Lars and I explored the center of Cochem. What are the main sights? The Moselpromenade with lots of pubs, restaurants and hotels. Timber- frame buildings of the 16th – 18th century. A beautiful market square. Churches and parts of the city wall. The best thing you can do is to get lost in the narrow streets!

Cochem In The Late Afternoon

By | 0 Comments

Lars and I have the habit to start and/or end our bigger trips at our beloved German river, the Moselle. After having stayed at some of the smaller villages, we chose Cochem for the beginning of our Easter trip. Our hotel and the restaurant where we had dinner were very close to the river, so I was able to shoot some…

Christmas In A German Wine Cellar

By | 5 Comments

Yesterday, we spent a day in Germany. That’s the beauty of living in a small country in the middle of Europe; you jump in your car and 2 hours later, you are in another country. We wanted to see some Christmas markets along our favorite river, the Moselle. In short, nothing much was happening in the small villages and in…

And Now For Something Really Completely Different

By | 2 Comments

The last day of our big summer trip had come… Sigh… We always try to squeeze in 1 or 2 extra excursions before we really head back to Brussels. This time was no exception. The first place we visited was Völklingen. What started as a small steel mill at the end of the 19th century developed into a real industrial…

Our next destination was Worms. Now, there are a lot of interesting, historic buildings in Worms. And after having seen two churches – very beautiful churches – I was in the mood for something else though. Besides, otherwise we would probably bore you to death with pictures of religious buildings on this blog. So, instead, Lars and I visited the…

A Gem In Speyer

By | 6 Comments

I am convinced that I am cursed. Really… After having traveled around in 20 countries this year, I am sure of one thing: there are roadworks everywhere. And these roadworks sometimes keep us from visiting places we really like to see… Also in Speyer. It was our goal to visit the cathedral (Kaiserdom), but due to roadworks Lars and I…

A Basilica in Saarbrücken

The last 2 days of our big summer trip, we found a hotel closer to the border with France and Luxembourg. There are a lot of interesting cities in this area and the first one we visited was Saarbrücken. The building that really caught our attention was St. John’s Basilica. When we entered, Lars and I saw people sitting and we…

Taking Our Time In Mesenich

By | 14 Comments

Another favorite at the Moselle: the picturesque Mesenich. Usually, Lars and I start or end our big summer trip in this village. This usually means, staying in a hotel, sipping some local wine and the next day we are on the road again. This time we decided to take our time for a stroll. The history of the place goes…
