Located on the edge of Germany’s Black Forest is the bustling University city of Freiburg, also known as Freiburg im Breisgau.

Known for its reconstructed medieval old town and surrounding natural beauty, it’s the perfect destination to visit if you want to relax in a quiet town with plenty of history and nature to explore.

What to do in Freiburg

The city itself is pretty relaxing, so to “do stuff” you need to leave town for a bit. These are all the top tourist attractions in the town you cannot miss!

Walk around The Old Town

Be sure to head to the Cathedral square, Münsterplatz, in the morning to see the daily farmer’s market and eat a sausage from the stands there.

Hike to Schlossberg (Castle Hill)

At the top of the hill, you’ll find a public park with panoramic views of the city.

Wander Around the Neighborhoods in Freiburg

Certainly, the Altstadt (old town) is the best place to walk around. The Cathedral and Town Hall have their own squares and the pedestrian shopping streets are there too.

Try The Local Cuisine

Flammkuchen is a thin crispy dough with cream sauce and toppings. So a bit like a pizza, but not. The classic toppings of onion and bacon are from just over the river in Alsace France.

Check Out One of the Festivals in Freiburg

Each summer, there are music and local festivas in specific sections of town and on the castle hill.
