Discovering Asam Kirche

Discovering Asam Kirche, Munich

Where : Asam Church, Munich Discovering Asam Kirche.  Asam Church was on our list to visit while in Munich.  It lived up to the challenge!  Feel free to Google the whereabouts of the church and visit directly.  Or perhaps take the Old Town scenic route to discover the surroundings. It was one of the most impressive Baroque church we saw in Europe. The Asam Church facade is really beautiful and once you step foot inside it’s breathtaking.  Rich in details inside, it will be difficult to stay just a few minutes.  We were mesmerized inside with the decor, paintings and sculptures. According to Wikipedia, the church was built from 1733 to 1746 by brothers sculptor Egid Quirin Asam, and painter

Discovering Jungfrau, Switzerland

Where : Jungfrau Mountains, Switzerland Jungfrau is a must see while visiting Interlaken in Switzerland.  To recap, Harder Kulm is the top of Interlaken but Jungfrau is the top of Europe! The best way there is by train.  It leaves Interlaken Est or West in direction to Jungfrau and takes around 2h10min.  For those with EuRail passes, you will have to dish out extra money but it’s worth it.  The train ride might seem long but it’s simply breathtaking. You might wonder which side of the train offers better views, well it’s a toss us.  However, if you want to see the Staubbach Falls as you ride through Lauterbrunnen, chose the right side of the train.  The falls are at

Discovering St-Beatus Caves, Interlaken

Where : St-Beatus Caves, Interlaken We visited Interlaken in Spring 2017. We’re not sure what the weather’s like in Switzerland during the spring, so we were shocked to see it snowing. Our first day in Interlaken was great, but the next day was snowing and cold. With that, we took advantage of the bad weather and visited the St. Beatus Caves.  This was our first cave discovery in Europe. It was a little challenging coordinating the way to St. Beatus since that part of Interlaken is German speaking.  We also fell on a very non-sympathetic bus driver that either didn’t like English speaking people, tourists or both.  Anyway, once on the bus we saw other tourists and felt we were

Discovering Brauistübli, Interlaken

Where : Restaurant Brauistübli, Interlaken, Switzerland After visiting Harder Kulm we went back to our hotel.  The reception suggested to have dinner at Restaurant Brauistübli, a local restaurant just a 3 minutes walk away. The restaurant was really simple, resembled a kind of a Swiss cottage.  The decoration was fun, lots of wood everywhere, witch figurines and some Easter bunnies on the tables.  That was probably since Easter had just passed.  Overall, it was exactly what we wanted.  An authentic and local Swiss restaurant for a delicious cheese fondue outside from the tourist crowd. The portion was delicious and just right for two people. We tried some Swiss wine, apparently one of the best European wines but made only for

Discovering Harder Kulm, Interlaken

Where : Harder Kulm, Interlaken, Switzerland Harder Kulm was our first discovery in Interlaken. We arrived in Interlaken with lots of daylight left.  So, we dropped off our luggage at the hotel and chatted with the reception staff.  We asked about places to visit and the man suggested Harder Kulm.   Interlaken felt a little disorienting, but he gave us directions by bus and it was quite easy from there. We could see the Harder Kulm mountains and lots of paragliders from the bus stop.  Luckily, it was a nice sunny afternoon !  Check out the pics below. Arriving at Harder Kulm, we needed to get Funicular tickets to go up, which cost us around $60 Canadian.  For starters, Switzerland

Discovering Au Quai de L’ill, Strasbourg

Where : Au Quai de L’ill restaurant, Strasbourg Our apartment was located 3 minutes walk from this restaurant.  The Google reviews looked good, so we decided to give a try. We definitely like the ambience and the service was quick and friendly.  They recommended the local tarte flambées or Flammekueche, which was really tasty. Our server was also nice enough to help us find a cool local pub.  We planned to visit Au Fût et à Mesure but hesitated we would get our money’s worth.  This is when a local pub started to sound more appealing to us.  It was a really good start to the night ! Our Ratings Serge: 5  Eli:  5 Recommend: Yes !

Discovering Ponts Couverts, Strasbourg

Where : Ponts Couverts,  Strasbourg, France One of the main points to visit in Strasbourg is the Petite France historic centre. The paths will lead you to one of the most beautiful points of the city called “The Ponts Couverts”.  According to Wikipedia, the bridges erected in the 13th century on the River III.  They are essentially, sets of three bridges and four towers that make up a defensive work. The towers, river, nature and historical buildings gives the impression of a magical Fairy Tale.  If you go to the Barrage Vauban you will get a panoramic view that you will never forget. Strasbourg has charm and the Ponts Couverts will heighten that sense.  We thought it was one of the
