Cologne Cathedral

If your heading to Cologne (Köln) you need to check out the Cologne Cathedral (Köln Dom) there. It’s quite impressive and worth the visit. There is also a lock bridge only a 5 minute walk behind the Dom as well.

There is lots of parking in the parking garage under the Cathedral and walkplatz. And NO it is NOT hard to drive in Cologne to get there, I see people say that all the time. I’m not a [Read more…]

August Things To Do Around Spangdahlem has lots of interesting things to go see during this month. Some of the most popular one are the Wittlich Pig Festival and the Hot Air Balloon Festival!

Reading Between the Lines Church Sculpture – Borgloon, Belgium

Reading Between the Lines is a fascinating church sculpture created by Gijs Van Vaerebergh in Borgloon, Belgium. It’s not worth making a special trip out there for BUT it’s only 15 mins from Tongeren where many people go to shop the Sunday Flea Market (post coming soon) so a great addition to that trip.

First let me say this, this sculpture is NOT a full sized church building, I think many people [Read more…]

Europa Park – Rust, Germany

Europa Park is said to be Germany’s ‘best’ amusement park so we decided to check it out on Memorial Day. We spent Sunday exploring the Black Forest and the Triberg area. We stayed at an apartment that was 15 mins away so we were able to get to the park by opening at 9 am. It’s located in Rust, Germany.

Parking is €5 and the closer you arrive to opening the closer you can park to the entrance. [Read more…]

My hubby and I had been looking for some different ideas for a date day and when I found out there was a ropes course and zip lining at Indian Forest in Vianden, Luxembourg it was a must do! We had a blast, even hubby who is not a huge fan of heights!

To get there you can park in the parking area for Vianden castle, it’s €1/hour, I’d buy it for at least 4 hours so your not rushing, you can get a [Read more…]

Triberg Waterfall - Triberg, Germany in the Black Forest

The Triberg Waterfall is a popular attraction in the Black Forest, it’s located in Triberg, Germany. It’s close to Dorothees Glass Hut and Sommerrodelbahn Gutach (summer toboggan run). So all can be easily done in 1 day. It’s also open on Sundays which is a huge plus for people like us who like to travel and do stuff on this normally ‘off day’ in many German areas.
