Freiburg im Breisgau

What you need to know before you go

    Freiburg sits surrounded by south Germany's verdant Black Forest. A lot of words can describe this university city. They include sunny, eco-friendly, historic, new, and energetic, the latter thanks to its lively student population. The old town is the city's star attraction, with its cobbled streets, gabled abodes, and cafe-lined squares – curiously run-through by petite streams.

    It's also home to the city's best landmarks, like the Gothic Freiburg Minister cathedral with its towering spire, which watches over the bustling Munsterplatz. Cosmopolitan comforts abound in Freiburg, from captivating museums and international restaurants, to fashionable shops, canalside beer gardens, and buzzing nightspots.
