Getting Away

#SightSeeingSunday

Welcome to our fourth #SightSeeingSunday page. Every week we share a photo from around the world! So check back often to see our #SightSeeingSunday photos! Where we are travelling from the comfort of our home.

Bavaria, Germany

A twilight view of a brightly illuminated St. Sebastian Pilgrimage Church is at the heart of our #SightSeeingSunday photo this week. The St. Sebastian Pilgrimage Church is located in Ramsau, National Park Berchtesgadener, in Bavaria, Germany.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas!

Copenhagen, Denmark

This brightly illuminated Christmas fare in Copenhagen, Denmark, is our image this week for #SightSeeingSunday. Held in Copenhagen’s Tivoli Gardens, the Christmas Market features many stalls to create a Nordic Christmas atmosphere, with 70,000 Christmas lights lighting up the garden.

Have a happy Sunday!

Dresden, Germany

Beautiful lights brighten a Christmas market in Germany in our #SightSeeingSunday picture this week. Christmas markets are a beloved German tradition that dates back hundreds of years. In fact, one of the oldest Christmas markets in the world can be found in Dresden, Germany.

Have a happy Sunday!

Paris, France

Paris comes to life with Christmas decor in our #SightSeeingSunday photo of the week. The City of Lights is magnified during the holiday season with thousands of Christmas lights across the city, festive window decor and Christmas markets, making it a must-see sight during the holidays.

Have a blessed Sunday!

Banff National Park, Canada

Where else could a stunning winter scene be captured but in Banff National Park in Alberta? Our #SightSeeingSunday picture this week captures the dramatic contrast of the train and the snowy mountains at Morant’s Curve.

Have a blessed Sunday!

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Snow powders the streets of Amsterdam, Netherlands, near the Oudezijds Kolk, the city’s famous canal, in our #SundaySightSeeing photo this week. Captured in the background is the Oude Kerk, literally meaning “the old church,” Amsterdam’s oldest building, established in 1213.

Have a restful Sunday!

Kuressaare, Estonia

This cobblestone street in Kuressaare, Estonia, leading to the Bishop’s castle, is our #SightSeeingSunday picture this week. Kuressaare is located on Saaremaa Island, the largest island in Estonia and situated in the Baltic Sea.

Have a restful Sunday!

Ottawa, Canada

Honouring the heroes of Canada’s past, the Canadian National War Memorial is illuminated under the Ottawa night sky in our #SightSeeingSunday picture this week. Titled “The Response,” the monument was dedicated by King George VI in 1939. In 2000 the Tomb of the Unknown Solider was added to the front.

We Shall Remember Them.

Transylvania, Romania

Commonly known as the home of Dracula, the Bran Castle in Transylvania, Romania, sits aglow at night in our #SightSeeingSunday picture of the week. Although there is no evidence that this castle inspired Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula, Transylvanians nonetheless have claimed it as such and marked it as a national monument and landmark.

Happy Halloween Eve!

Riga, Latvia

What may seem like a miniature figurine town is actually the breathtaking skyline of the city of Riga, Latvia, in our #SightSeeingSunday picture of the week. Riga, the capital of Latvia and the largest city, was founded in 1201. Its historical centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Have a great Sunday!
