One Day in Montreal

On the road trip from Toronto to Quebec we stopped for one night in Montreal which is circa 5 hours away from Toronto. We arrived in Montreal in the evening of Sunday 13th and decided to stay in to watch the new episode of Fear the Walking Dead. While travelling for such loooong while you don’t always have to be out, you can simply stay in the hotel on the bed and chill out Smile

On the next day, we drove a bit around in Montreal and then went to the old town in Montreal.

 

Auf unserem Roadtrip von Toronto nach Quebec legten wir einen Halt in Montreal ein. Wir kamen erst abends im Hotel an und haben uns erstmal die neue Episode von Fear the Walking Dead angeguckt. Danach wollten wir nicht mehr wirklich raus gehen – auf einer monatelangen Reise darf man ja auch mal im Hotel bleiben Smile

Am naechsten Tag sind wir ein bisschen durch Montreal gefahren und haben dann in der Altstadt von Monreal geparkt. Die Altstadt ist total niedlich mit ganz vielen schoenen Gebaeuden.

We parked the car near the Notre Dame Basilica and sat down in a cute cafe, La Concession, to get a snack.

They had a really yummy salmon sandwich and a huge selection of desserts and tartes. While writing this post I feel like eating another of their desserts!

The Notre Dame in Montreal looks like a mini version of the Notre Dame in Paris – probably my favourite cathedral of all Smile

The weather wasn’t that great when we went to Montreal as you can see in the photos. I love the dramatic sky in the two photos below though – quite a contrast to the white church.

Ireally like the old towns of most of the cities. The buildings are always so beautiful with lots of details.

In the photo below, modern art mixes with historic styleSmile

After 3-4 hours of walking around in Vieux Montreal, we drove over to Quebec where we arrived again in the evening. Read more about Quebec in the next post Smile

 

Nach 3-4 Stunden Herumlaufen ging es dann weiter nach Quebec Smile
