Bergen

Bergen, weekendtrip in Unesco surroundings

I just returned from a wonderful weekend trip to Bergen. This coastal city surprised me and I fell in love with Norway´s second largest city. Bergen is one of Scandinavia’s oldest city founded in the year of 1070. Well know for it´s connection as a Hansa city. All over the…

Reichshof Hamburg

Stay: Reichshof Hotel Hamburg. A touch of old school glamour!

I love when a Hotel have a story to tell. And Reichshof Hamburg certainly do. Built in 1910, closed down in 2014 and reopened in fresh new dressing. But still keeping the old charm intact in July 2015. The Reichshof Hotel Hamburg have done a great remodelling but still keeping…
