Freiburg im Breisgau is a lively student town in the Black Forest, a stone’s throw away from the French border, within easy reach of Basel, Zurich and Stuttgart. Being in the Black Forest, the city is full of fairytale style buildings in the old town, like the Merchants Hall and the town hall, as well as housing the imposing gothic Freiburg Cathedral. Freiburg is also one of the sunniest places in Germany, so a holiday apartment in Freiburg city centre, or a holiday cottage Freiburg would make a great summer holiday choice. You could build in a day trip to Konstanz or Lindau. Don’t rule out coming in winter, though – it’s not far to the mountains, and the Christmas markets are fantastic.
Don’t miss the chance to look around Freiburg’s university, the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität, or one of the city’s numerous art museums, like the Kunsthaus L6 or the Kunstverein Freiburg. The Planetarium is also entertaining for all ages! You could also visit the impressive Freiburg Markthalle and buy some local produce to prepare in your Freiburg holiday apartment. Try some local specialties like Black Forest ham, Knöpfle (noodles) and, of course, Black Forest gateau. Freiburg’s nightlife is also worth experiencing – whether you just head to a Biergarten or a bar, or try out one of the cities numerous clubs.
