Why Go on a Tour of Freiburg

Located in the south-west of Germany, Freiburg is the perfect place for your next trip! Boasting marvelous nature, authentic heritage, beautiful architecture, and a bustling lifestyle, it has everything one could ask for while traveling in Europe. The city is also considered to be the warmest one in Germany, providing another great reason to pay a visit. Situated by the Dreisam River next to the Black Forest, Freiburg is green in every sense of the word, as it is praised for eco-friendly living and the wide usage of solar power.

One of the best places to enjoy Freiburg's landscapes is Castle Mountain. Take in the views from uphill or just relax at a beer garden nearby, enjoying the surroundings. For an even better 360-degree view, climb up to the castle tower, overlooking the whole city. Make sure to check out the Baroque walls and the Cannon Square while on the site as well.

Continue your Freiburg tour through the cobbled streets to admire the authentic old town of the city. It is where you will find the Freiburg Cathedral, which is considered to be one of the main landmarks. Its spectacular gothic architecture and 116-meter tall tower create an unforgettable ensemble, along with the one-of-a-kind Hosanna Bell, ringing right before the traditional Roman Catholic Angelus prayer service.

Right nearby the Cathedral you'll see the Cathedral Market, which is a must for anyone who enjoys sampling regional delicacies. It is the perfect place to taste the Long Red sausage, also called the Queen of the Wursts. As for the local drinks, make sure to taste the regional Baden Wines, which you can do in Alte Wache, a wine bar in one of the few remaining 18th-century buildings in the city.

Freiburg might seem small at first, but its vast cultural scene and numerous monuments, along with postcard-like sunny landscapes, create an unforgettable experience for every traveler.
