Defi01 Escape Game

DEFI01 Escape Game is a new way to have fun in Bourg en Bresse. It is a team game played from 3 to 6 players. As a team, the players have to look for hints hidden in the room and then put them together in order to solve the mistery and be able to get out in a limited time.

Did this escape game whilst on holiday in France, was excellent! Very inventive clues and good hints when really stuck. Staff had very good English and explained everything well.
Only thing that was slightly not applicable for total non-French speakers was that some of the written clues were in simple French. Not sure if this part is available in English.
Completed the game in 45 minutes and all parts worked perfectly. Great staff and great game. Suitable for a team of about 3-4 players of any age 12+ in my opinion. Thank you!

Monastere Royal de Brou

The royal church of Brou in Bourg-en-Bresse was built between 1505 and 1532 by Margaret of Austria as a monument to the memory of her husband, Philibert the Fair, Duke of Savoy. It is a masterpiece of the Flamboyant Gothic style and is richly ornamented with magnificent tombs, a fine altarpiece, statues and choir stalls that testify to the artistry of 16th century Flemish craftsmen. A museum is housed in the monastic buildings.

The craftmanship in this church and monestary is quite breathtaking. Both the stone masonry on the building and the sculpturing of the crypts. Do make the detour if you are in the vicinity. I also liked the way they use the monestary as an art gallery.

Eglise Notre-Dame de Bourg-en-Bresse

Reviewed By diana56 - Enkhuizen, The Netherlands

Personally I love roman churches. I was told I would hold my breath seing this gothic church, and I did. One cannot believe the colour of the light, the love for every detail, the stonework, the woodwork, the floot. I was deeply impressed and absolutely stunned. After all that it took a different mindset to go and watch the paintings. But that was, although not as spectaculair also worth the visit. The church is a first- class stunner!

Le lieu en lui même est adapté aux enfants, il est dommage qu' on soit obligé de se ruiner pour le goûter des enfants, d autant plus qu'une partie du personnel est fortement désagréable ! Ça n aide pas à faire passer les tarifs...

Couleurs d'amour

Reviewed By cocolinettebis - Lyon, France

Le festival d'illuminations de Bourg-en-Bresse, Couleurs d'amour, reprend du service cette année encore, du 23 juin au 23 septembre, les jeudis, vendredis et samedis soir à la tombée de la nuit. L'an dernier, seuls le monastère de Brou et le théâtre étaient illuminés. A ces deux monuments, s'ajoute cette année un nouveau spectacle sur l'hôtel de ville. Et quelle déception malheureusement! Pour ne pas avoir de mauvaises surprises et parce que les trois spectacles ne se valent pas, mieux vaut commencer par le moins intéressant des trois, à savoir celui de l'hôtel de ville, pour ensuite filer au théâtre et finir par le seul des trois spectacles qui vaille vraiment le détour: celui du monastère. Car ce dernier spectacle est époustouflant et vraiment digne d'être vu... Les couleurs sont chatoyantes, l'enchaînement est logique et la musique accompagne parfaitement bien le spectacle. Aussi, si vous deviez n'en voir qu'un seul: privilégiez celui-ci!

Reviewed By Green4Good - Whangarei, New Zealand

This house is typical of 15th century architecture of the region and it is still in use today. Lifting the head up one can see a great example of the "colombage" construction technique.

Hotel de ville de Bourg-en-Bresse

Reviewed By DanishTravelor - Copenhagen, Denmark

I Bourg-en-Bresse er der spor tilbage fra gallisk og romersk tid, men byens historie er først kendt fra 1200-tallet, og i 1500-tallet kom byen med opførelsen af Monastère Royal de Brou i 1536 for alvor på det franske landkort.
Monastère Royal de Brou er på Unesco’s liste over verdensarven, og tiltrækker årligt mange turister, der vil se dette vidunder af et kloster med tilhørende kunstmuseum.
Men også Église Notre-Dame og Basilique Sacré-Coeur i Bourg-en-Bresses centrum er oplagte besøgsmål for kulturinteresserede turister.
Man skal som turist i Bourg-en-Bresse ikke snyde sig for en travetur rundt i de små gader i byens centrum, for her og der er der spændende bygninger af nyere og ældre dato, som er arkitektonisk interessante.
Maison Gorrevod i Rue du Palais nr. 1 er et flot hus i bindingsværk, opført i 1400-tallet.
Demeure Hugon i Rue Gambetta nr. 16 er fra 1496 og også i bindingsværk.
På selve Place de l'Hôtel de Ville ligger rådhuset opført 1761 – 1771 og ved siden af det lidt ældre Hôtel de Bohan fra 1730.
På den flotte og åbne, rektangulære plads Esplanade de la Comédie finder man Théâtre de Bourg-en-Bresse, opført 1898 – 1899.
En gammel byport, Porte des Jacobins, opført i 1400-tallet, ses på Place Edgar Quinet nr. 7.
Fra nyere tid kan nævnes Chapelle Sainte-Madeleine på Boulevard Paul Bert 41 – 43, en kirke opført i 1935 i stilen Art deco, tegnet af arkitekten Georges Curtelin.
Jeg passerede denne fine bygning, som var lukket, og udefra ser ud som om den trænger kraftigt til restaurering.
Som turist i Bourg-en-Bresse kan man tilbringe en spændende eftermiddag med at gå rundt i byen og se nogle af de fine, historiske bygninger.
