Trier Eats

24 09 2017

From my day trip to Trier, Germany on one August day.

Wasn’t planning to but how can I pass a soft-serve?!

Local sparkling wine @ a pop-up shop in the middle of the main square. Wine manufacturers apparently take turns setting up shop throughout the year. All wines extremely reasonably priced.

Fast forward to the end of the day in Trier. Before returning to Luxembourg City, needed properly to try some local wines. This was a very good choice.

The restaurant had two separate rooms and entrances. This looked more like the front and was much more modern.  I was in the “back” room.





Arriving in Trier, Germany

12 09 2017

It’s just an hour journey east from Luxembourg City to Trier, one of the oldest cities in Germany with multiple monuments pronounced as World Heritage Sites, on the local train.  It was a short walk from the train station to the historical and commercial center of the city marked by an ancient Roman gate, Porta Nigra.

And inside the gate, a very cute city center.

 





Churches in Luxembourg City

I love visiting churches (Christian in this case) and just sitting there, taking it all in though I’m an atheist.

A few churches I visited during my stay in Luxembourg City this past summer.

Trinity Church, a Protestant church

St. Michael’s Church

A local, newish church. Not sure what it’s called!

The Notre-Dame Cathedral, all of below.





Yet More of Luxembourg City

The second morning in Luxembourg City; another beautiful day.

And time for lunch.

And some supermarket browsing.





More of That Lovely Luxembourg City

Continuing with the walk in Luxembourg City.

There is a cute touristy train you can take to go around the hilly city.

There is an elevator that takes you from the lower end of the city to the top end of it.

Love it.





Walking in Luxembourg City: in the Old Town After Lunch

23 08 2017

Having enjoyed lunch (with wines) on the main eating square in Luxembourg City, it was time for more walking.  It did me good with lots of up-and-downs with great views.

Still on the square.

And moving on.
