    Reims Things to Do

    Not a random result, I choose the Hotel Porte Mars for more than one reason, it is located beside Charles De Cazanove Cellar, just the "next door guys". Thank you Google Earth!! This cellar is more humble and small than Mumm House, of course, it is a local champagne producers, a house founded in 1811 by Charles Gabriel de Cazanove, with an...

  • Look Ma, no wires!

    Reims Transportation

    An unusual feature of the new Reims tram line is that when the tram approaches the center of the city it suddenly loses its overhead wires and gets its electricity from an electric rail in the middle of the track.At first sight I found this rather alarming, since I was reminded of the ‘third rail’ that I used to see on the Chicago elevated system...

    Épernay Things to Do

    In answer to a question on "visiting vineyards during a day trip from Paris", I answered with advice to visit Epernay by train, then walk or take taxi to the Ave de Champagne to visit a major Champagne house for a full touristic tour and champagne tasting which requires Payment for the tour!Ever the pessimist, I figured that the day trip did not...

  • Maison Mercier

    Épernay Things to Do

    The most popular champagne brand in France, Mercier, headquartered in Epernay, has thrived on unabashed self-promotion since it was founded in 1858 by Eugène Mercier, a trailblazer in the field of eye-catching publicity stunts and the virtual creator of the cellar tour. Everything here is flashy, including the 160,000 liter barrel that took two...

The first large encounter was 6 July 1641, one of the countless encounters of the Thirty Years War. Sedan was a local principality at the time under the leadership of Frederic de la Tour d’Auvergne –...

There are fourteen different stops covering different aspects of the hard fought battles of Stonne. A small museum in Stonne is the starting point. Some of the roads can be a bit rough...

    Charleville-Mézières Things to Do

    Une saison en Enfer, Les Illuminations, “Poesies”, complete works of Rimbaud can be grouped in one book, and even not a thick one; important is the quality, not the quantity. I am just wondering what he would have written, at 25, 30, 40, 60! Rimbaud wrote between 15 and 21; he then went to Abyssinia, did not anymore produce literary work.On the...

    Vitry-le-François Things to Do

    As I mentioned in the previous tip, I walked the whole way around the outside of this Classical styled Church. It is that big, I found I had to stand a long way back to fit the whole Church in my photo's. The style is quite different to most churches, and so are the Church doors. All were painted maroon with what looked like flowers instead of the...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In this vast cemetery there are buried 116,628 French, German and Polish dead from WWI and WWII. It is only one of 19 such graveyards in the Champagne area.
    We stopped to remember all those who died wandering from the French section where we had entered, through the German and the Polish. Individual graves and ossuaries in each section with the remains of the thousands unidentified.
    We went to look for the Books of rRemembrance said to be found in a closed but unlocked safe in one of the pillars at the entrance. To our horror we found an official Notice telling us that the Books had been vandalised, descrated and removed to the Town Hall for restoration and future safe keeping.
    No better warning is required that monsters of evil and depravity still live amongst us.

  • DANISH MILITARY CEMETERY – BRAINE

    Fismes Things to Do

    Denmark was neutral during WWI, a status respected by the warring nations unlike in WWII. That didn’t mean Danes were not killed. As a result of the Second Schleswig War in 1864, the predominately Danish area of upper Schleswig came under Prussian rule. This was the first of Bismarck’s three Wars of German Unification. This meant that the Danes of...
