Re: Restaurant

by Beausoleil

Boulogne and Boulogne-sur-Mer are two different cities in two completely different parts of France. (Think Springfied, Massachusetts and Springfield, Illinois . . . a thousand miles apart with the same name.)

Boulogne-sur-Mer is in the very northern part of France near Calais. I was searching for a restaurant a few weeks ago and a fellow VTer suggested I write to the mayor and ask about it. I did and received a reply within 24 hours. My restaurant had gone out of business so no one could find it . . . including me, but the mayor remembered it and told me they had been out of business for a while.

It's about the fastest way to find out if your restaurant is still in business and get an address. Here's the web site and you can e-mail. http://www.annuaire-mairie.fr/ville-boulogne-sur-mer.html

Good luck.

Travel Tips for Boulogne-sur-Mer

Parking in Boulogne

by sue_stone

If you are driving to Boulogne you will be pleased to know that there is parking everywhere!!

There are several parking stations, various outdoor parking areas and parking on most streets as well. At certain times of the week you will have to pay for parking, but for example the street parking near our hotel was free after 7pm on a Saturday and all day Sunday.

We parked in a parking station near our hotel when we arrived on the Saturday morning, and for almost 10 hours parking it only cost 5 euros. (This parking station was closed on a Sunday, but others are open.)

Ice sculpture

by grets

As part of the Christmas Market in Boulogne, a demonstration of ice sculpture was staged. Using a chain saw and an angle grinder, many huge blocks if ice were joined together and formed into santa and his reindeer.

I have seen ice sculpture once before, at a Chinese exhibition in the Netherlands a few years ago, but I have never seen them being created, which was very interesting.

The locals in Normandie

by Luchonda

Daily business on the beaches of Normandie
Small fishing boats floating on the sea doing the daily job.!
But somebody has to get the boat on land again. Also a daily job - but unusual to see it if you are used to the stress of cities .

The beach

by grets

I know most Brits don't go to Boulogne for the beach, but the sand is fine and there is a wide stretch of it. You can leave the kids making sand-castles while you go off shopping. There are trampolines and playground for their amuseument.

One end of the beach is an enormous ugly rusting metal plant - just make sure you're facing the other way.

Château-Musée - overview

by Mikebond

The castle of Boulogne was built by Count Philippe Hurepel. Its construction took place between 1227 and 1231 partly leaning over the 4th-century Roman walls. It was surrounded by a moat and connected to the town by a drawbridge, like a typical medieval castle.
However, a feature makes it different from Middle Ages castles: it hasn't got a donjon.
The present appearance comes from major works made by François 1st between 1767 and 1791 when the castle was turned into barracks.
Today this castle is the best-kept medieval complex in Northern France and houses a great museum as well as temporary exhibitions.
