Zermatt, İsviçre (Alpler) 11:46
Zermatt, İsviçre (Alpler) 663 izlenme - 3 yıl önce We're heading for Zermatt, Switzerland one of the most beautiful towns in the Alps, surrounded by mountain peaks up to 15,000 feet high. Most famous for the dramatic Matterhorn, there are many other majestic sites to enjoy in this remote mountain area. So remote that you can’t drive or fly there, the Alpine resort village of Zermatt is surrounded by some of Europe’s highest mountains that shelter it from the outside world. Like mythical Shangri-La in the Himalayas, this is a magical wonderland. The quaint little village of Zermatt is situated in the midst of woods and pastures, in a mountain-girded valley, nearly 5,500 feet above the level of the sea. The town of Zermatt, while dense, is geographically small. There are three main streets which run along the banks of the river Matter Vispa, and numerous cross-streets, especially around the station and the church which forms the centrer of Zermatt. In general anything is at most a thirty-minute walk away. Streets are narrow and lined with shops, restaurants, hotels and inns near the rail station. Homes and houses are throughout, some perched on the lower edge of the mountains, and a mixture of very old wood-hewn beamed walls 100s of years old with newer buildings and homes (probably only a century old!) Most buildings and homes are chalet style, some very historic, others more modern, but all blended in with the "Old World" charm and Alpine architecture. Swiss watch shops, clothing boutiques, and souvenir shops with everything from Swiss brass bell key chains to lacy handkerchiefs for sale, Swarovski Crystal figurines and jewelry, cuckoo clocks, Goebel Hummels, Reuge Music boxes, fine porcelain dolls. Bakeries abound as do gourmet food stores. We discovered that the best buy on chocolate bars were in the grocery stores. Of course there are many shops that sell clothing and accessories for hiking and skiing. Most of these stores also rent skiing equipment and the people who work at the stores can help anyone choose the best equipment to rent for a successful day on the slopes. In the old village, beside the Grand Hotel Zermatterhof, about 30 ancient buildings show the traditional building style of the original Walser residents. The barns and grain stores, up to 500 years old, are a piece of living history and reveal how the mountain farmers of Zermatt once lived. Their sun-beaten wooden walls are made of larch wood and stand on stilts with round stone slabs on top to prevent rodents and insects from entering. The roofs of these typically Valais-style buildings are covered with shingles made of flat stone slabs.

Güney Amerika: Amazon Nehri, Brezilya 678 izlenme - 3 yıl önce By far the world's biggest river, we journey up the Amazon by boat beyond Manaus to a jungle lodge, the Ariau, and stay for 3 days exploring by canoe and on foot. Our hotel stands on stilts in the river and provides many activities for us to enjoy while we explore the jungle.
İsviçre'nin Başkenti Bern 16:38
İsviçre'nin Başkenti Bern 345 izlenme - 3 yıl önce The Bern train station is right next to the Old Town, so your walk through the historic zone begins the moment you arrive. The main street proceeds directly from the train station through the historic center, changing names five times in its five blocks, with shops all along the way. This road is remarkable not only for the ancient buildings and arcades that cover both sides, but for the spectacular Renaissance fountains down the middle. The Kramgasse is some 330 meters (1,080 ft) long and lies at the center of the old city. It is the western half of the central axis of the city's oldest part, the Zähringerstadt, built right after the founding of the city in 1191. It is bounded to the west by the Zytglogge, Bern's iconic clock tower that served as the city's main gate tower in the 12th century. In the east, the Kreuzgasse, literally a "crossroads", separates it from the other half of the old main street, the Gerechtigkeitsgasse. Several narrow alleys and passageways connect the Kramgasse to the parallel Rathausgasse in the north and the Münstergasse in the south. Both sides of the Kramgasse are covered with Lauben, stone arcades that protect pedestrians from inclement weather. The Kramgasse was known as the Märitgasse (Swiss German for "Market Alley") until the 15th century and as the Vordere Gasse during the 16th century. The changes in name reflect the street's changes in character. In medieval times, it served as the city's marketplace, but after the Reformation the market stands were gradually replaced by stores. The street remained the commercial center of the city until the middle of the 19th century,its heyday being the 1840s. Two covered arches at both ends of the Marketgasse block include the famous Clock Tower, the oldest building in town, whose astronomical clock still works after 500 years. Einstein lived on this main street for eight years while developing the General Theory of Relativity, and his house is now open as a museum. Among all the pretty towns of Switzerland, Bern is unique because most of the sidewalks in the historic section are covered by old arcades that continue for nearly four miles along most of the streets in the center. The stone arcades offer protection from sun and rain, but more importantly, create a special atmosphere that is somewhere between being outdoors and inside. Because the buildings are small, department stores and franchises have stayed away, leaving most of the retail space for unique shops and galleries. This historic section is only 400 meters long and wide, ideally suited for a walking tour, immersed in buildings that have not changed much since the Middle Ages. It is such a historic gem the town center has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The word Bern means bear and this animal is the symbol and token of the city. At the end of town across the river they have their famous bear pits. In recent years the government has greatly expanded this bear habitat to make it really a pleasant place for the bears to live. Previously it was not so nice, it was really just a bear pit, a hole in the ground lined with cement and a couple of bears living there, almost cruel place to keep the bears. But now it's become a vast outdoor zoo and the bears seem to be enjoying it -- they're having a great time. They created this landscaping that comes down the side of the hill right down to the river, and created several plunge pools for the bears to go swimming, and walkways so that the public can see the bears and the bears can see the people. It's all very well planned and of course it's all very safe. They're not going to jump out at you but you do get a chance to get very close to them. Another important building is the Gothic cathedral with the nation's highest church tower at 328 feet, which you may climb for a birds eye view of the historic center. When you're done visiting the main sites of Bern and you're going to walk back towards the train station, there are several other lovely side streets that you should explore so that you see something different on your way back. We walked over to the Rathaus, the City Hall, which has a very impressive Rathausgasse and another big church of St. Peter and Paul, and walked along the Rathausgasse for a block, another well preserved neighborhood. Then we took a little detour on Brunnengasse. This too was a charming little street, very quiet, hardly any cars, and nice shops, a few restaurants and bars along the way, the old historic buildings and a lovely curvature to the lines of Brunnengasse, and that reconnects once again with the Rathausgasse. Next you'll come across Kornhausplatz which is a large plaza that was first built about 600 years ago and it's always been one of the main plazas of the city. We absorb the sites of Bern before departing and heading back to Interlaken.

Salzburg, Avusturya Gölleri, Dağ Turu, Salzkammergut (Avusturya) 319 izlenme - 3 yıl önce We drive through the Salzkammergut, a beautiful landscape of lakes and mountains just outside Salzburg, Austria. After a one-hour drive through splendid scenery we arrive at the little village of St. Gilgen on the shores of Lake Wolfgang, a very pretty place, famous as the home of Mozart’s mother and sister. The journey continues with a half-hour boat ride across Lake Wolfgang, a very pleasant excursion that passes some small village clusters along the way and wonderful mountain scenery in the distance. You can ride outdoors on the upper deck or down below in the bar and restaurant lounge. This pleasure ship has busy waiters who will keep you from getting thirsty or hungry. The boat soon arrives at the quaint little village of St Wolfgang where you have nearly one or two hours free to browse around, have snacks at a terrace café overlooking the water, and visit the Gothic church to see an important wooden altar carved by Michael Pacher, a leading woodcarver from the Tyrol working in the early Renaissance. People have been flocking here ever since the 12th century when it was a pilgrimage town dedicated to St. Wolfgang.
Luzern, İsviçre (Şehir Rehberi, 2014) 08:07
Luzern, İsviçre (Şehir Rehberi, 2014) 217 izlenme - 3 yıl önce Lucerne is deservedly the most popular destination in Switzerland, famous for its well-preserved Old Town, consisting of many blocks of medieval buildings richly decorated with painted murals showing village life in olden days, making this like an outdoor art gallery. All of this is set on a beautiful waterfront, along the shores of Lake Lucerne and the River Reuss. The historic center of Lucerne is an extensive pedestrian zone, filled with interesting shops, restaurants, and ancient buildings. The steep gabled roofs, covered with strong wooden shingles to ward off the winter snow, complete the picturesque scenario. Automobiles are not allowed into this large historic zone, so you can wander the cobbled lanes without fear of getting run over. The shopping is fun, with many items that are pure Swiss in character, like music boxes, chocolates, watches, cuckoo clocks, cowbells, beer steins, hand-carved wooden statues, costumed dolls, cheese, knives, embroidery, linens, music, and you can also find very good deals on clothing.

Cobblestone streets lined with ancient facades extend for many blocks through the largest Renaissance-era neighborhood in France. The magical feeling of the past is further enhanced by numerous older structures from the Gothic, Romanesque and even classical Roman times, and by the complete absence of modern buildings. Old Lyon has a unified historic atmosphere that you dont find in many other large cities of Europe.

We visit the weekend Night Market, and consider how the economy of Vietnam is doing relatively well.
Queenstown Mall, Yeni Zelanda 05:14
Queenstown Mall, Yeni Zelanda 195 izlenme - 3 yıl önce http://www.tourvideos.com/ Another Great Space: The Queenstown Mall, best known for active outdoor activities in the rugged, beautiful mountains and lakes surrounding it, Queenstown, in the southern extreme of New Zealand, is also a charming village with a friendly town center that is a wonderful place to simply hang out and relax. The Queenstown Mall is the heart and soul of town, and focus of action with very good restaurants such as Tatler and Chicos, along with wine shops, boutiques, and specialty stores. This short pedestrian promenade runs through the middle of town and is flanked by several little side streets and a lovely the lakefront, making it very easy to find your way around this village center on foot. No driving necessary. There are some hip cafes along the mall with outside and indoor seating where you can come for your morning cappuccino with a croissant or perhaps brunch, read the newspaper and meet some local folks. Rustic, wooden architecture in a human-scale just one or two stories high creates a soothing atmosphere, enhanced by trees and comfortable outdoor furniture. The mall leads directly to the picturesque waterfront of Lake Wakatipu with a sandy beach to the left and a boardwalk to the right, which leads to the wharf and small marina, with mountains on all sides. You could swim in the lake, although its nippy temperature never varies more than a few degrees throughout the year, for the lake is extremely deep, scooped out by glaciers eons ago, as were most of the nearby valleys. The vertical, jagged mountains, on the other hand, are still growing a half-inch every year, pushed skyward by the collision of tectonic plates. All around the Queenstown Mall you will discover a compact zone of a half-dozen streets featuring nearly 300 restaurants, cafes and bars along with plenty of shops, postcards places, clothing boutiques and outdoor gear shops. It figures that such an active recreational area is a fine place to buy sporting goods, offering a good range of high-quality hiking gear and clothing, backpacks, shoes and boots. After all, with all these experienced outdoors people visiting they've got a high level of customer, so the shops have to provide high-quality goods to make the sale. Of course there are souvenir shops selling products made in New Zealand such as the ubiquitous sheepskin and delicious local foods including various jams, and fruits. The most popular souvenirs are anything with New Zealand printed on it, like t-shirts, coffee mugs and wall hangings. On one hand, it is wonderful to simply relax in town, shop, dine, gaze at the lake and mountains, and enjoy a short boat ride, which is enough for many visitors. You really don't have to do much except sit on a bench and look about at the attractive sights. For all the slackers and layabouts, perhaps the finest Queenstown activity is simply kicking back at a café on the mall and watching the people walk by in a never-ending stream. But Queenstown is mostly about the scenery and adventure activities, so you will probably want to plunge into nature's bosom. This is adventure central, so whatever your passion, you can find it here. Queenstown is perhaps the most popular visitor destination in New Zealand because of the outdoor activities, so get out of town and take advantage, which is really the main reason for coming here: visit Milford Sound, ride a jeep into the back country, tour some vineyards, take a cruise on the lake, watch a sheep farming demonstration, and maybe jump off a bridge on the end of a bungee, along with dozens of other exciting options. But you will always come back to town and to the tranquil comforts of the Queenstown Mall -- in the evening especially -- and you'll find this is an excellent place to gravitate back to. Nearly all of the shops stay open until 9:00pm since potential shoppers are out of town adventuring during the day and so the merchants remain open to accommodate and cater to those late arrivals, seven days a week, twelve months each year. Or if you just skip all that adventure and stay in town all day, that's OK too.
Strasbourg, Fransa (Şehir Rehberi) 17:46
Strasbourg, Fransa (Şehir Rehberi) 178 izlenme - 3 yıl önce http://tourvideos.com/ Strasbourg, France, is one of the truly great cities of Europe, especially because of its large historic zone, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is a huge pedestrian area where cars are generally prohibited, with many of its buildings dating back largely to the 15th and 16th centuries, and some to the medieval period. We are visiting here in December, which is an exciting time to be in Strasbourg because of the Christmas markets. Strasbourg has world's oldest Christmas market, going back 450 years and it has been happening nearly every year since then. In recent years it has got bigger and bigger, so they are open every day for about a month and a half, all through November and December, up through Christmas, from about 10 in the morning until about 8 o'clock at night. You will find all kinds of knickknacks and special one-of-a-kind items that you just won't find anyplace else, and lots of food, and the hot wine to warm you up a little bit. It is a little cold here at this time of year, of course, in December. You can expect to be in the 30s and 40s, but if you bundle up and where your layers you should be just fine. We have had very pleasant weather conditions -- it has not been windy, no rain, blue skies, with some nice clouds and crisp sunshine -- perfect for enjoying this kind of atmosphere. Of course, Strasbourg is a year-round destination. It's great in the summertime, warmer obviously, you can be out in your shorts and enjoy the sidewalk cafés and the terrace restaurants all summer long for four or five months of the year. Even consider January and February, the low season, if you want to come when the rates are least and the crowds are smallest, you look for winter. Early November is also a dip in the season. Otherwise, it's busy all year round, especially now in the Christmas season when it is very festive. All the lights come on by 5 PM, and you have this great party atmosphere all the time here during the Christmas market. Something special. Strasburg also has one of the largest pedestrian zones in all of Europe. It goes throughout the entire island, which is surrounded by the River Ill. Which was important, of course, as a source of power and water, and they had a mill, a series of water mills. You can see some of this preserved today, which wd important for grinding grain and other kinds of mechanical action that the water mill would have provided We are also visiting the Petit France district of Strasbourg, "Little France" which is one of the most charming areas of Strasbourg. Today it's a beautifully preserved historic zone. Strasbourg's historic the architecture showcases buildings with a half-timbered type construction, which is typical of northern France, Alsace-Lorraine in particular, with some resemblance to German architecture as well. Among the other attractions here, you can take a boat ride in Strasbourg on the River Ill. We take you on a walking tour of the historic neighborhoods of Strasbourg, and summarize for you a three-day visit to the area. You'd want to spend probably at least a day and a half or two full days in Strasbourg itself. And perhaps, on a third day go out and visit the nearby wine villages. They are really attractive, charming small towns set in the vineyards in the foothills of the Vosges Mountains, so it is a very picturesque area that can easily take a full day visiting outside of town. And we will take you on some walks in town that will fully occupy day or two at least visiting the historic sites, the Strasbourg cathedral, the shops and we will have a look at some of the restaurants and hotels. Mostly we are just enjoying these beautiful pedestrian streets that are perfect for walking.

This urban park opened in 2013, replacing an ugly parking structure and bus terminal, transforming the heart of Nice into a world-class city.
Trummelbach Şelalesi, Lauterbrunnen, İsviçre 04:54
Trummelbach Şelalesi, Lauterbrunnen, İsviçre 135 izlenme - 3 yıl önce There is one super outstanding site that you might want to stop off to visit along your bus ride, and that's the waterfall at Trümmelbach. You can get off the bus about halfway through the valley, and you pay a small fee to visit this powerful Trümmelbach waterfall which comes roaring down from the Jungrau, Eiger and Monk high above. There's an elevator that's inside the waterfall thanks to those amazing Swiss engineers, along with a series of tunnels and staircases and bridges to bring you right up to the face of this raging vertical river, all the while you are inside the mountain. It's phenomenal. Valley has 72 waterfalls but Trümmelbach is by far the most spectacular. It's really the only one that you can walk up with a elevator and staircase and walkways and go inside the mountain. You actually go up inside the mountain to view the waterfall. It's the most amazing waterfall in the Alps that you'll ever see. The Swiss engineers have built staircases and walkways, elevators and viewing platforms to give you this view of a most unusual waterfall. It had carved out a narrow, vertical twisted canyon into the rock face of the cliff and the engineers thought this is an interesting opportunity to let people get up in there and be inside the waterfall itself. They have a variety of different colored lights -- they try and jazz it up a little bit, kind of tart up with a bit of psychedelic lighting and wonderful stairway access. You look at it on the way up, you turn around and you come walking back down again and get different angles, different viewpoints. There are about a dozen major drops in this waterfall, so it's like looking at 10 or 12 waterfalls in one, and always there is the amazing carved in sculptured rock cliff face, with the booming water pounding through. It is water that's coming down from the Aletsch Glacier and from the Jungfrau Mountain. This is one of the main drains for the Eiger, the Munch and the Jungfrau, those three big peaks that are up at the Jungfrau massif. When you're coming down, you could take the elevator halfway back down to the bottom or walk all the way down, and that's a better strategy because you'll see parts of the lower falls that you would've missed otherwise, and more of these wonderful views from the Trümmelbach looking into Lauterbrunnen Valley. On our way down the park was closing already, so we had no choice. The elevator shut down. We had to walk all the way back down and we were glad we did. The engineers design these interior tunnels and walkways so that you get vistas along the way. You'll be walking up a staircase, it's through tunnel and then it opens up and you can stand at the ledge and look down, look up, see the water spraying around. And they put some colorful lights in here which might seem a little tacky -- it's not really a disco ball spinning around -- but it does add some welcome color to this otherwise gray stone and gray water, so that's all part of the fun. This is very easy visit and when finished you just walk back to the road to the bus stop and catch the next bus coming through. Now here's a little tip -- you might check the bus schedules that are posted on the board before you go into the waterfall so that you can time your visit, the buses are not all that frequent, and if you know when the next bus is coming, and you can then linger in the waterfall or hustle on a little bit in order to catch that bus. Otherwise you might have to sit around and wait for half an hour at the bus stop for a bus to come through. There is fortunately a convenient café restaurant right here -- you can have a drink or have an ice cream, have some coffee, sit at their tables and they're very friendly folks, and wait there for the bus and soon enough the bus arrives and it will pick you up bring you back to the town of Lauterbrunnen which is only about a 10 minute bus ride from this point. You could also very easily walk from Trümmelbach back down to Lauterbrunnen town. There is a nice riverside trail that will take you about 45 minutes, a very easy level stroll through beautiful scenery. Or you could just walk along the roadway and that'll be quicker, maybe 20 to 30 minutes to walk from Trümmelbach to Lauterbrunnen, so take your pick, but if you timed it right the bus will pick you up and give you a ride.

Interlaken, İsviçre (Şehir Rehberi) 07:28
Interlaken, İsviçre (Şehir Rehberi) 122 izlenme - 3 yıl önce The town of Interlaken makes a perfect home base for exploring the beautiful mountains all around the central region of Switzerland. In this segment we will take a quick look at what Interlaken has to offer. The advantages of staying in Interlaken are the many hotels, restaurants and shops, and wonderful train and bus connections to get up to the mountain sites. Some of the world's most spectacular mountain scenery is waiting for you just outside of Interlaken in the heart of the Swiss Alps. Europe's longest glacier -- four famous mountain peaks: the Monk, Eiger, Jungfrau and Shilthorn -- astonishingly beautiful Lauterbrunnen Valley, my favorite -- Europe's highest railroad station, delightful mountain villages of Grindelwald, Wengen and Murren -- two large lakes with tour boat service -- and some fascinating nearby cities. We have many other movies about the surrounding mountains and valleys you can find on our YouTube channel and on our website. All of these attractions are close to the town of Interlaken which makes a perfect base from which to explore the region. There are nearly 100 hotels and guest houses in all price ranges in the city. While Interlaken is attractive with excellent supply of these hotels shops and restaurants, and there's a pretty park in the middle, frankly it is not one of Switzerland's really quaint and traditional villages. You don't come to this area just to see Interlaken. Instead it's a practical tourist center with fine support services, excellent rail and boat connections, and a compactness that makes for easy walking anywhere in town. There's also a large casino filled with slot machines for some evening amusement. The nearby surrounding peaks and valleys are your main reason for being in Interlaken so your time in town is mostly for eating and sleeping, doing a little shopping, in order to gear up for the excursions into the mountains. For the more adventurous you can go paragliding. That's right even if you don't know anything about it you can go with a pilot and enjoy tandem paraglide ride. They'll drive you up to the hills and then you do a little walking, hike up further up on the slope, and you jump off, and the payoff is you get to glide down and enjoy a fantastic view. Or for something less adventurous you can just rent a bicycle and go peddle around. There's a lot to see in the Interlaken area. The town itself is relatively flat and you can peddle through the shopping areas and up into the residential zones. As you can see the main activity in town is shopping -- all sorts of souvenirs for sale, clothing, you can buy some hiking gear. It's a great place for backpacks, for boots, hats, clothing of all kinds, walking sticks and a T-shirt that says Interlaken. There's not much of a pedestrian zone that's free of automobiles here but they do have one little lane that's for pedestrians. But the rest of town is very friendly for walking around, the sidewalks are wide and there's always things to look at and things to do. While you have many lovely hotels to pick from there's no question that one of them stands out above all the others. It's the Victoria Jungfrau Grand Hotel and Spa Five-Star, ultra-deluxe. Even if you cannot afford to spend the night here you might enjoy a meal in one of their various restaurants and you can even have a nice meal on their front terrace with a view looking up towards the Jungfrau. This great meadow is right next to the one major street of town, the Hohweg, which is beautifully landscaped and kept in a semi-natural state with flowers and trees and the meadow along one side and grand hotels on the other. If you're a gambler of course there is a casino like there is in most Swiss towns and it's an elegant place. It's part of the Kursal complex which for 100 years has been a cultural center of the city, set in a beautiful park with fountains and flowers. Tourists have been coming to Interlaken and the area since about 1800 when it was first popularized by some romantic painters and then tourism really increased in the 1890s and early 1900s with the opening of railway service. There is a quiet residential area behind the main commercial town. Population of Interlaken is quite small, just about 5000 people, many of them living in traditional chalet-style houses that really make something for you to have a look at. So that's another nice activity -- take a stroll in the residential neighborhood.
