Beauty around every corner in Luxembourg City

We were stunned at how photogenic Luxembourg City was. With its quaint cobbled streets, historic buildings, and views straight out of a fairytale, this picturesque city is full of charm. And visiting in October only added to the beauty of this place – the paths around the city and the Alzette river were lined with gorgeous autumnal colour!

Strolling through the alleyways of Auray

Auray is a charming town, with cobbled streets and historic half-timbered houses, known particularly for its extremely picturesque harbour, Saint Goustan. Nowadays, it is a pleasant yachting harbour with an abundance of restaurants and bars at which to enjoy the lovely views.

Larochette Castle rewards you with a King’s view

First thing you’ll notice is the backdrop of Larochette Castle which gives the town a fairy tale feel! To top it off the cobbled narrow streets definitely add to the magical feel. On our first venture out we explored some of the towns lovely little cafes surrounding the square with great views of the medieval castle.

Just watching the world go by in Cudillero

The cute little cobble roads lead up through the houses where everywhere you turn you just have to get out your camera. Surrounded by flowers, it really is the prettiest place. As you pass all the rows of little houses, local Spanish ladies sit outside their doors all day just watching the world go by.

Surprised by the quaintness of Zürich

Zürich enchanted us right from the outset. Expecting something of a super-urbanised banking city metropolis, we were surprised to find a town which was so quaint that it could be the setting of a nursery rhyme, with its gothic spires, cobbled streets and oversized clocks.

Visby is often called “The City of Roses”

It’s hard to overstate the beauty of the Hanseatic port town of Visby (Sweden), in itself justification for making the ferry trip to Gotland. Inside its thick medieval walls are twisting cobblestone streets, fairy-tale cottages draped in flowers, and gorgeous ruins atop hills with stunning Baltic views.

Snow globe village Colmar

Colmar is one of those villages you’d find in a snow globe, that’s how beautiful and charming it is. The very well preserved historical old town with its cobbled streets is a bit of a time trap, taking you back several hundred of years.

Český Krumlov, a Bohemian Rhapsody

Walking down the cobbled stone laneways of Český Krumlov early in the morning, it is easy to feel like you are stepping back in time. The streets of this South Bohemian town are lined with gothic, renaissance and baroque style houses, with large boulders on every corner, placed originally to avoid damage from the horse and carts cutting corners.

Lovely little Vianden

Vianden is lovely. I fell in love with this small town while I was still on the bus. It has a small river winding its way through the town, with steep hills either side, and the houses are old and quaint, the streets are cobbled and quiet. It’s probably busy at the height of summer, but at the beginning of October it was nice and peaceful.
