Back to My Summer Trip and to Reims, France

16 10 2017

I have a few more write-ups on my trip to Europe in August.  The stop after Luxembourg City and a day trip to Trier, Germany was Reims, France in the Champagne region.

My ride from Luxembourg City to Reims

Arriving at the Reims train station very close to my hotel.

Left my luggage at the hotel and wandered around.

And lunch!!

A fun day spent in Trier, Germany including lots of walking due to getting lost, miscalculated proximity, etc. but all good.

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.





The Most Beautiful Church Organ

23 09 2017

I was awestruck by this organ at the cathedral in Trier, Germany.  So magnificent and intricate.  Would have been nice to have heard it being played!

 





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

7 09 2017

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.
