Sommerrodelbahn Gutach – Gutach, Germany in the Black Forest

Sommerrodelbahn Gutach is an awesome summer toboggan run is located in the Black Forest! It’s only 7 mins from Dorothees Glass Hut in Wolfach, Germany. It’s also only 23 mins from Triberg, Germany. Also note it’s open on Sundays, which is great!

We checked this out on a Sunday but it also happened to be the weekend of a German holiday so I think it was more crowded than it normally would be. Since [Read more…]

So after the ropes course & lunch we decided to check it out, despite the fact that Mr. B is not [Read more…]

Ulm Cathedral – Germany

The Ulm Cathedral (Ulm Münster) in Ulm, Germany is the world’s tallest cathedral. While that is amazing in itself you can walk clear up to the tippy top of it! It’s an amazing experience but not for the faint of heart or those out of shape.

While checking out the cathedral is free it does cost €5 to climb to the top. Know what your getting into before buying, it’s 768 steep spiraling stairs up and [Read more…]

Anne Frank House – Amsterdam, Netherlands

Visiting the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, Netherlands has been at the top of Bea’s bucket list since she found out we were moving to Europe. This spring break, April 2015, we were able to cross it off the list! It is a fascinating visit and worth it for both those who have read her book and those who haven’t.

Heineken Experience – Amsterdam, Netherlands

Heineken Experience - Amsterdam, Netherlands

I had heard good things about the Heineken Experience in Amsterdam so we decided to check it out. I will say that trying to find out if it was a family friendly event was a bit challenging. The websites were a bit confusing so I used TripAdvisor and found out that it was not only family friendly but that kids enjoyed it. I was recently told by one person they missed out because she said the website [Read more…]

Noahs Ark – Dordrecht, Netherlands

While planning our Amsterdam trip I found this gem and just had to visit the life sized replica of Noah’s Ark! While we were super impressed with the enormity of it, it was also one of those ‘bust’ attractions for us…I’ll explain shortly. It’s located in Dordrecht, Netherlands. We drove here after visiting Clara Maria on our way back home, it was bit out of the way but I wanted to see it.

I’m [Read more…]

Grote Kerk Church (St. Bavo) – Haarlem, Netherlands

Grote Kerk (St. Bavo) - Haarlem, Netherlands
Grote Kerk (aka St. Bavo) is not just ‘another’ church like all the others, it has some fascinating history to make it worth the visit. Who knew that one church could be so full of great history and information! The information desk has some brochures in English but I enjoyed using the Rick Steve’s self guided tour in the Amsterdam book, you can find these at your library as well. If you visited [Read more…]
