Pont Neuf

Toulouse, France

The Pont Neuf is a 16th-century bridge in Toulouse across the Garonne river. Original planning for the bridge started in 1542 by the assembly of a committee of master masons and carpenters. Construction started on the foundations in 1544; the first arch was started in 1614. The bridge was finished in 1632, and was inaugurated on 19 October 1659.

The bridge is not symmetrical; the longest arch is the third from the right-hand bank. The openings through the piers were originally supposed to represent the face and mane of a lion. A triumphal archway added in 1686 constricted traffic and was removed in 1860.

Horrible experience, I have been traumatized by gynecologists for two years now because I was examined at 17 years old without my consent, taking advantage of the fact that no one was with me. Does not respect anything and especially not consent. Don't make an appointment.

Very friendly secretary, very professional and efficient telephone dialogue. Very bad experience with Dr FRIES. Followed for my 2nd pregnancy, from my first appointment I was advised not to take any pregnancy kg because my BMI is too high, without even trying to find out about my diet or my lifestyle. Telling myself that I was putting myself and my baby's life in danger, that I had to play sports too, despite my fatigue, my ligament pain, my 2-year-old daughter to manage and my job as 40h/week… Comparing me to a smoker whom she would advise to quit smoking. Or even to a driver who drives at 180 km/h on the highway without having an accident when I explain that for my first pregnancy my daughter was doing very well, and that I had not had gestational diabetes. I heard at each appointment that I was putting myself in danger (small precision I had only gained 2kg at 4 months of pregnancy) no solution or advice was given to me... relentlessness! Inhuman, unprofessional person, does not care in any way about the mom, I was very touched by these appointments!

I give 5 stars. We often note the doctors at this center but rarely the secretary. Pleasant secretary, always smiling on the phone or face to face, responds to all our requests, very accommodating. It's nice to have someone online who understands you, explains you and helps you, someone who is in a good mood, secretaries like that are rare compared to other centers. Very friendly and deserves more than 5 stars.

Disappointed with this consultation. I expected more listening I went there because of hormonal acne I suggest that it could be from the birth control pill and the first thing the replacement says to me: what pill are you thinking of? Well, I don't know, it's a bit like your job... she prescribes me one that's not reimbursed at 33€ No hormone check-up, significant fee overrun and she told me at the end "to receive the results you will have to pay through the laboratory". Ok we are in France and a classic gynecology consultation costs 80€ Very average !

Kakesbeck Castle

Kakesbeck is one of the largest medieval fortifications in Münsterland and the oldest castle in Lüdinghausen. The imposingly grown complex originated in 1120 as a motte, a small hilltop tower castle. After numerous changes of ownership, the castle was extended onto two islands, but it was not until the 14th century that it underwent significant alterations and extensions under the von Oer family. The estate experienced its heyday in the middle of the 18th century, when it covered an area of almost one square kilometre and consisted of five further outer castles in addition to the core castle, which were secured by ramparts and moats.

The well-maintained condition of the castle today is thanks to the late Wilfried Grewing, the former lord of the castle. The foundation named after him has been particularly committed to preserving the property since 2020.
