3 Places In Paris You Could Easily Climb Besides The Eiffel Tower

Are you someone like me who would love to have a little climb for a scenic view of the urban landscape instead of a hike up a mountain?

There are amazing things about climbing a city’s structure that would cause nature lovers to frown upon.

You might probably spot your favorite fast food joint from the point you are standing! Not only that, you would not be able to argue that the resting points within a building/structure could be way more comfortable!

Hotel Review – Hotel Ibis Dusseldorf Hauptbahnhof

Hotel Ibis Dusseldorf Hauptbahnhof will be my last hotel review for this entire Germany-France trip which I am already missing so much, especially the gothic cathedrals and beautiful architectures.

IMG_8483

While 25 Hours Hotel Das Tours, Dusseldorf  was warm, cozy & furnished in German-French vintage style, Art’otel Cologne by Park Plaza on the other hand showcased modern, minimalist and stylish design.

Getting to Art’otel Cologne by Park Plaza was rather convenient as it only took less than 10 minutes by bus 133 from Cologne Hauptbahnhof Main Train Station. Being located along the Rheinauhafen district, the Old Town and a museum was just few minutes walk away. Not forgetting the Lindt Chocolate Museum which was about 3 minutes walk across the Rhine River. Continue reading “Hotel Review – Art’otel Cologne by Park Plaza, Germany”
